Housing & Dining

Form lifelong relationships, share new adventures, and explore your new digs. When you live on campus at USF, you share homes and hallways with fresh personalities and unique backgrounds, and the resulting melting pot will stimulate both your mind and your heart. And don’t forget about your stomach — the Bon Appetit catering company operates six eateries across campus, including the new Lone Mountain Dining Hall, with views that span downtown, San Francisco Bay, and the Pacific Ocean.

Student Housing

Living on campus amid distinct personalities and unique backgrounds is a hallmark of the university experience. It’s where new adventures are shared, lifelong relationships are formed, and big ideas are born. Each of our ten residence halls, one off-campus and nine on campus (including five living-learning communities), offers a unique way to connect with the university.

Living-Learning Communities

USF living-learning communities provide undergraduate students an opportunity for deeper, more meaningful, and connected learning in a shared residential and academic environment. Students in these communities are enrolled in a common set of courses and live together in a designated residential setting.

Off-Campus Housing

Immerse yourself in the city and experience living off-campus. The Off-Campus Living Department is dedicated to supporting you in your transition to living off-campus. The majority of our students tend to live in neighborhoods of the Inner Richmond, Outer Richmond, Panhandle, Cole Valley, and Outer Sunset.

Dining on Campus

From vegetarian and vegan-friendly to gluten-free, diabetic to allergic, Bon Appétit is cooking for many. Dine at any one of the six eateries across the University of San Francisco campus and catch a view of the city from the newest dining location on Lone Mountain.
