USF’s Newest Residence Hall
Lone Mountain East will welcome students in Fall 2021.
Perched on the eastern edge of the Hilltop, Lone Mountain East is a new residence hall that overlooks the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands, and Farallon Islands. Its two buildings connected by an aerial walkway create four separate interior courtyards, offering Dons the experience of independent city living alongside the convenience of being on campus.
San Francisco is many things: a tech epicenter, a cultural mecca, the most beautiful city in the world (in our minds, anyway). It’s also fairly small, land-wise: 49 square miles contains all that wonder. When space is at a premium, innovators have to get creative. And Dons are all about innovation. So, when we wanted to build a new residence hall in order to expand our student housing, we got creative and reconsidered how to use the spaces we already had. A parcel on Lone Mountain, consisting of underused tennis courts and auxiliary buildings, seemed like the perfect setting. When we landed on a building design that would work with the hilly topography and also satisfy our students’ educational and social needs, construction began. Lone Mountain East now stands ready to welcome Dons back to school in the fall.
