Housing and meal plan rates vary for each academic year and per room type. Amounts may increase or decrease each year as established by USF.
Your enrollment deposit includes your housing deposit. If you are assigned housing, the deposit will serve as a pre-payment for your room charges. If you are not assigned housing, your housing deposit will serve as pre-payment for your tuition charges.
Only new students should submit the pre-payment.
There is no requirement to live on campus. Students are encouraged to apply for housing by the published deadlines each year. Please see the MyUSF Housing page to learn about the guaranteed housing policy.
Student Housing and the University of San Francisco work to provide housing spaces for all students. This includes working with Student Disability Services (SDS) to ensure that any and all accommodation requests are received. Students who need housing accommodations are advised to indicate the need for a disability related accommodation by answering the question on the housing application. Students must contact SDS and complete the intake and eligibility process to request a housing accommodation; answering the question alone will not initiate the process.
Occupancy dates differ depending on the housing contract signed by the student. Please view the Forms and Documents webpage to ensure you know the dates of occupancy you are signing up for. These contracts are legally binding documents that are signed during the housing application process.
Students living in the following on-campus housing locations are required to purchase the meal plan: Hayes-Healy, Gillson, Toler, Fromm, Lone Mountain-East, Loyola Village, Loyola Village Townhouses, and Lone Mountain-North. Those living in St. Anne’s, Fulton House, and Fulton Flats are not required to purchase the meal plan. More information can be found on the Meal Plan webpage.
Students who live on campus may NOT bring their cars to USF* as they will not be eligible for the USF parking permit nor will they be able to utilize street parking. Please visit the Public Safety website for more information regarding the no car on campus policy. All undergraduate students have access to a USF Muni Pass via MuniMobile.
Pregnant students are able to and encouraged to continue to live in the residence halls. Depending on availability and need, a private room with bathroom may be provided to a pregnant student. USF does not allow infants or children to live on campus with their parents. Housing staff will assist parenting students in securing housing off campus.
