Off-Campus Living

Golden Gate Bridge

Welcome to Off-Campus Living!

Our department is here to support students attending the University of San Francisco and our surrounding neighbors and communities. 

Students who connect with the off-campus living office can receive help in the following areas:

  • 1-on-1 coaching
  • Assistance in the housing search while in San Francisco
  • Provide legal  resources and aid in conflict resolution

Off-Campus Living recognizes that our students at USF are joining neighborhoods and communities with pre-established histories and traditions. OCL is committed to also engaging USF students in what it means to:

  • Be informed about what communal living is, safety, and civic responsibilities while residing in San Francisco 
  • Establish rapport and relationships with their peers and community neighbors 

Mission Statement

At OCL we empower students to thrive by teaching and developing life skills through the act of finding residence and living off campus. These skills include but are not limited to: cultivating independence, fostering interdependence, and understanding civic responsibilities.
