International Scholar Housing Chinese

Welcome to San Francisco, USA! 欢迎来到美国旧金山 !

We hope to provide some guidance on issues such as how to obtain housing, how to arrange for telephone service, gas and electricity, and where to shop for furniture, groceries, and other essential items. Some people visit San Francisco ahead of time to search for housing, sometimes several months in advance. We realize that this may be difficult for most of you, so we are providing you with information to ease your transition.
在这里我们希望能提供您关於如何获得住房、 电话服务、 天然气和电力供应商的相关资讯,并替您解答在哪里买家具,杂货、 和其他必需品等问题。许多人初次来访旧金山时,总是需要花费许多时间找寻租屋,我们了解这是非常不容易的事,因此为您提供相关信息来减轻您过渡时期的压力。

On Campus Housing学校宿舍

UCSF Housing offers a variety of living spaces at or near our Parnassus and Mission Bay campuses for Students, Postdocs, Residents, Clinical Fellows, and Faculty.  We have options for singles, couples or families with children.  This is a good choice only if you are staying in San Francisco for one year or more.  Housing on the UCSF campus is usually cheaper but very limited in availability, so you should also try to find off campus housing.
UCSF Housing在邻近Parnassus 和 Mission Bay校区为学生们、博士后、驻院或临床研究员等提供多样的住屋选择- 包括单身,双人或家庭式的公寓。如果您预计在旧金山待上一年以上, 这是一个相当不错的选择。我们提供的住屋通常低於市场价格,因为数量有限,你也可以考虑尝试寻找校外住房。
