San Francisco State University Off-Campus Housing

If you are interested in housing, apply early! Because San Francisco -- and the entire Bay Area -- is considered one of the most desirable areas in the country, housing is at a premium. Rents are high; vacancies are low. With demand so high, spaces both on and off campus fill quickly. Students wishing to live on campus should check out SF State's housing options and are strongly encouraged to fill out a housing application before being admitted to the University. SF State does not guarantee housing to newly admitted students. Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Many SF State students prefer to save money by living with their families and commuting to San Francisco State. The public transportation options throughout the Bay Area make commuting easy -- even for students traveling sizeable distances. Several San Francisco Muni streetcars and buses stop right at the campus's front door, and the Daly City BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) station is located near campus and linked to SF State by regular shuttle service. You can learn everything you need to know about off-campus housing opportunities through University Housing's Off-Campus Housing Resources and Links Web site. The site includes a list of available rooms and apartments close to and within commuting distance of SF State.
