NHD-CA Housing Options

The NHD-CA State Finals will take place in Rocklin, CA (Just north of Sacramento), May 8-10, 2020. Champions from local county competitions are eligible to advance to the NHD-CA competition.



Students and their parents can select from the list of hotels working with NHD-CA to provide special rates for NHD-CA participants. 


  • Hotels are 1 - 5 miles from William Jessup University. 


  • We recommend calling the hotel directly and not using the online options to check availability.  Most hotels list a person to call.


  • In order to get NHD-CA rates you MUST tell the hotel "I am with National History Day."


Select the "LIST OF HOTELS" link to the right to see the options available.
