    San Francisco State University Off-Campus Housing Guide

    Located slightly south of the heart of San Francisco, San Francisco State University is known for its urban campus, diverse academic programs, and vibrant student life. If you have recently been admitted to the San Francisco State University (SFSU for short) or are looking to familiarize yourself with the university and its surrounding area, this comprehensive guide will give you all the information you need, ranging from transportation to safety and even great food in the area!


    San Francisco State University is considered by many students to be a “commuter school”, which means that making friends, connecting with others, and having a thriving social life is important to the overall culture of the college. Freshmen and sophomore students, as well as upperclassmen, live in one of the eight on-campus housing options while in college. Students attribute this to the affordability of university housing for the value of the dorms, apartments, etc., as well as how expensive off-campus housing can be.

    For students that opt for off-campus housing, they typically search for housing options that can be shared with at least one roommate. For a lot of students, renting houses and having up to four roommates is an affordable option for housing, as this cuts down the costs of living drastically in the San Francisco area.

    Off-campus, there are a few neighborhoods/areas as well as complexes that are consistently popular choices for SFSU students. The most popular, arguably, is the Park Merced area, located less than a mile south of main campus. Within the Park Merced area, students can find several housing options, such as Park Merced apartments, which features luxury apartments with one to three-bedroom units available. In the Park Merced neighborhood, there is a shopping center that has a laundry-mat, an Enterprise Rent-a-Car, a coffee bar, a taqueria, a poke restaurant, and more. In their free time, students can hang out at Park Merced or relax by Lake Merced!

    Another popular choice for SFSU students to seek off-campus housing is the Daly City area, which is located approximately two and a half miles south of campus. In the Daly City area, there are several apartment complexes that students can rent, such as Edgeview Terrance Apartments, Westlake Village Apartments, 88 Hillside Apartments, Brunswick Street Apartments, Hillside Courtyard Apartments, and La Terrazza Apartments. Within the Daly City area, students can shop at the Westlake Shopping center or even play a round of golf at the Lake Merced Golf Club!

    Additionally, another neighborhood where students look for off-campus housing is the Outer Sunset district, located three miles northwest of campus. In the Outer Sunset district, students can find rooms or private homes for rent. Around the area, students can visit the San Francisco Zoo, go to Ocean Beach, or shop and eat at the local stores and restaurants in the area.


    After a long day of classes, the surrounding area of SFSU has a variety of restaurants and eateries to satisfy any hunger cravings that you may have.

    San Francisco State University students use several different methods of transportation to travel to and from campus, including biking, riding the bus or train, and lastly driving. A campus that is dedicated to reducing traffic congestion and carbon emissions, SFSU highly encourages biking as a commute option. Because of this, there are several bike and scooter routes across campus, bicycle, and scooter parking areas, as well as special events and free repair sessions.

    For commuter students, BART is available from the Daly City Station, as well as the six Muni Bus lines that serve campus. Lastly, for students who drive, there is parking available on campus (purchase of permit needed) as well as a Ride Match service that helps students find carpools based on where they live.


    The San Francisco area is not known for having vast parking availability, and thus finding parking around campus without a permit can be a bit of a hassle. For this reason, other methods of transportation are encouraged, such as riding the train or bus. If students do own a car and wish to drive to school, a parking permit must be purchased to utilize the parking garages on campus. For students, permits are divided into two categories: campus resident permits and commuter student permits. Students in each category are designated to park in Lots 20 and 25 of the parking garages on campus. Daily parking permits are also available to purchase when needed.
