Dear Community 42, our campus is currently closed for the remainder of 2021 to new and prospective students due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We did not make this decision lightly as we are following the lead of the City of Fremont and the Bay Area community. The health and well-being of our students in 42 Silicon Valley is our top priority and we hope to resume our activities there soon. If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at contact@42.us.org.
