About USF

Students from all over the United States and all over the world choose the University of San Francisco, San Francisco’s first university, for an education unparalleled at any other institution. Why?

Since 1855 the University of San Francisco, one of twenty-eight Jesuit Universities in the United States has grown to extend it’s global reach from a campus at the heart of the city, with locations throughout San Francisco and the Bay Area, and through expanding international opportunities. Whether completing degrees or certificate programs, our students and graduates benefit from national and international recognition.
