USF in the Presidio

USF will open a new location in San Francisco's beautiful Presidio, directly across from Crissy Field and with stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge.

The Presidio location will house several graduate programs and host a series of lectures focused on the area. The lectures will be open to the public, and will cover a range of topics, including California history, the Presidio, sustainability of the wetlands, and other green initiatives.

“Establishing this state-of-the-art learning facility in one of the most beautiful places on earth will increase our visibility within San Francisco and give us a conduit to partner with its people through any number of social, cultural, entrepreneurial, and community-oriented opportunities,” said Marcelo Camperi, interim dean of the Collge of Arts and Sciences.

With a lease agreement signed, the university is currently renovating the 8,000-square-foot building. It is slated for use starting in early 2011.
