Short-Term Lodging Needs


Housing Services provides a Short-Term Lodging Guide to assist visiting professors, hospital patients, returning alumni, conference attendees and students’ families with temporary lodging, and to help new students who need temporary housing until they find permanent accommodations.

These listings are based solely on information provided by the managers and owners of the guest apartments and houses, bed & breakfasts, hotels and motels listed in this guide. These listings are not affiliated in any manner with UCSF. Moreover, Housing Services does not investigate, endorse or guarantee the accommodations listed. It is advisable to make reservations in advance and, if possible, to visit the unit prior to making final commitments.

Please inquire about UCSF discounts or special rates that are available at some of these establishments.

If you would like to list your property on our guide, please visit this page for our criteria.
