Find Housing

If you plan to move to San Francisco, you can choose to live on-campus or off-campus.

You may consider living on-campus in Loyola Village. On-campus housing is limited and priority is given to students who apply by May 1.

If you prefer to live off-campus, contact USF's Off-Campus Housing Service. You’ll find listings for apartments and roommates, resources for tenants' rights, and other helpful strategies for living in San Francisco.
