Aldea San Miguel
Aldea San Miguel is a family-friendly community surrounded by a forest on Mount Sutro, one mile uphill from the Parnassus campus.
Aldea San Miguel offers a quiet escape from city life and is best for those who study or work at the Parnassus campus and for those who have a car.

Getting Around After Work Hours
Access to the Mission Bay campus is 30 minutes by car and can take up to an hour via two, connecting UCSF shuttle lines. Access to Parnassus is a 15-minute walk down Medical Center Way (about 340 feet of elevation over 0.6 miles). There are no shuttle services or public buses servicing Aldea San Miguel on nights and weekends. Because of the steep terrain and dark streets at night, walking or bicycle transportation is often inconvenient.
Aldea San Miguel Parking Information
Parking is available on surface lots near the apartments. Each apartment comes with one reserved parking space at no extra fee. Unless the rental property is a junior one-bedroom, tenants may purchase a permit for a second vehicle, based on availability, at the Parnassus Housing Office. Guests may park in a designated guest parking space for up to four hours and must hang the guest parking permit on their rearview mirror.
