Housing Search Resources
You will find the following on our rental website:
- Housing Search: This search for housing is specifically directed at USF students. Most of these properties are close to campus with landlords who have been renting to USF students or specifically want USF students. Also, students who are looking to fill an open vacancy in their apartments post here.
- Roommate Finder: Here you may post as well as search for a roommate/housemate within the USF community.
- Landing Page Updates: Continually look for announcements on OCL Events and things going on in San Francisco.
- Resources: A great place to view examples of tenant lease agreements/contracts, tips for the housing search, links to neighborhood maps and public transportation, and more.
Social media and SF websites are also good avenues to find housing. We encourage you to explore all options as you seek your new home. Create a biography post to send out to prospective persons or post your bio online.
