The majority of law students prefer to live off campus within the city of San Francisco and the Bay Area. The admissions office will send information on housing and a first-year roommate contact sheet in May. 

In addition, an Off-Campus Housing Workshop will be held on June 5, 2015, at the USF School of Law to assist in your search for off-campus housing. You may register for the Housing Workshop athttp://www.usfca.edu/law/jd/admitted/housing_workshop/

There are some on-campus housing options for graduate students, but these options are limited and not guaranteed. On-campus housing applications for the 2015 - 2016 academic year will be available by February 2015 and should be submitted to the USF Residence Life Office by May 1, 2015, for priority consideration. Most graduate students are assigned to Loyola Village, an apartment style complex, and will be asked to share a bedroom in a two or three bedroom unit.
