Graduate/Law Students

Apply for Graduate Housing

To apply for housing, please visit USFRooms.

The Spring 2021 Housing application will be available through USFRooms beginning October 27, 2020. 

All graduate students are eligible to apply for spring essential housing, but only those who meet the following criteria are eligible to live on campus. Students will be notified of approval for spring essential housing on a rolling basis. Please note that graduate housing will only be available in St. Anne's and Fulton House for the Spring 2021 semester. 

  • A student who faces housing insecurity (homelessness or a precarious living situation);

  • A student who faces financial insecurity;

  • A student with existing health conditions that would be impacted by travel;

  • A student whose home is in an area with extremely limited internet connectivity;

  • An international student who has immigration, travel, and/or visa restrictions;

  • A student who is in an approved, on-the-ground, program;

  • A student with any other extenuating circumstance that warrants review.

Spring housing assignments will be emailed to students the first week of December. Therefore, it's strongly suggested that graduate students who are interested in living on-campus during the Spring semester apply by the priority deadline of December 1, 2020. Students who apply after December 1 may still receive on-campus housing depending on availability/approval, but they would be notified at a later date. 

Housing Information for Incoming Graduate Students 

Graduate students are not guaranteed housing and should know that housing space for graduate students is very limited. Limited space is available for graduate students in the St. Anne's Community, the priority being Law School students. All graduate students are welcome to apply for housing for possible available spaces in Fulton House and Loyola Village Townhouses. The continuing student housing application opens on February 1, 2021. Graduate student applications will be placed on the wait-list until spaces become available in July. However, space may become available beginning in May so please continue to check your Dons email as that is where your housing offer will be sent with a deadline to accept within 3 days of the send date. 

Due to limited on campus housing availability, we strongly encourage graduate students to seek support from Off Campus Living

Housing Contracts

Below are the contracts for the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 academic years. Please review the housing contract that applies to you before submitting a housing application.

Off Campus Living Resources

Due to limited on campus housing availability, we strongly encourage graduate students to seek support from Off Campus Living. We understand that the prospect of finding an apartment in San Francisco can be challenging, particularly for students who have never rented an apartment before. To support students with the transition to living off campus, we have established some helpful resources found on the Off Campus Living website to help students navigate the search process and assist with finding safe and affordable housing.
