About Us

Welcome to UCSF Housing Services!

Housing Services provides housing and related services in support of UCSF’s mission. We aspire to create a desirable housing program for UCSF affiliates in a variety of safe and well-maintained rental communities.

In addition, we do not require a security deposit or application fee. 

UCSF Housing is not for profit and receives no state subsidy or taxpayer monies. We are funded solely by the rent we receive from our tenants. The rent collected enables us to maintain our current housing program and facilities as well as expand housing for future demand. With our small team, we are able to support approximately 2000 tenants with plans to add 400 more in 2021-23.

Housing is available at the UCSF Parnassus, Mount Zion, and Mission Bay campuses.  We offer family housing at Mission Bay, Mount Zion, Aldea San Miguel, and in the Faculty homes located along 5th Avenue.  The Tidelands, near the Mission Bay campus, has opened as our newest and most innovative property. In each community, we are committed to integrating sustainability practices in everything we do.

If living off-campus better suits your needs, visit the Off-Campus Housing section of this site and browse through the rental listings.  You may also find what you need in the short-term lodging guide.
