Campus Information


USF law students have an array of housing options to choose from as they make the city of San Francisco their home. While most law students live off campus within the city of San Francisco, a new USF residential option for priority use by law students opened in Fall 2017.

The law school’s Office of Admissions and the USF Office of Student Housing and Residential Education provide a variety of support services to help guide students through the process of securing housing. For LLM Students, contact Julianne C Traylor.

Apply for Housing

Campus Housing

The University of San Francisco opened a new residential facility for law students in Fall 2017. The residence consists of two floors, housing approximately 45 students, most in single rooms. There is a central kitchen and large lounge area. Each floor includes communal bathrooms and laundry facilities. Some of these rooms are reserved for LLM Students, so early application is encouraged. 

The new housing facility is located at 1330 14th Ave. on the St. Anne of the Sunset Church and School site. It is 1.5 miles from campus, which is a 20-minute bus ride away. This unique partnership with the parish opens two fully renovated floors of a St. Anne's building to exclusive use as USF law student housing, complete with a dedicated entrance. The residence is located in the Inner Sunset neighborhood, a vibrant community with shops and restaurants in immediate proximity. In order to avoid impacting neighborhood parking, students living at St. Anne's may not have a car for use or parking in the neighborhood. There is convenient public transportation between the neighborhood and campus.

The housing application process is managed through the university’s Office of Student Housing and Residential EducationPricing information will be made available in the Spring, and incoming and continuing law students may apply online for housing. 

Off-Campus Housing

The majority of law students prefer to live off campus within the city of San Francisco and the Bay Area. The admissions office will collect information from interested Fall 2024 first-year and continuing law students. If you would like to participate, please fill out the Roommate and Carpool Survey. A compiled list will be made available to those who complete the form beginning May 24, 2024.

In addition, a Housing Workshop will be held in June 2024 to assist in your search for off-campus housing. You may request a link to the recording by emailing
