About San Francisco

San Francisco, California, is the fourth most populous city in California and the most densely populated. With apartment complexes sprinkled throughout the city and student housing options near San Francisco’s numerous colleges and universities, students flock to this cultural epicenter.


Visitors, residents, and especially students love San Francisco’s eclectic architecture and awe-inspiring landmarks, such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman’s Wharf, Alcatraz Island, and Chinatown. Additionally, if students are hoping to work in the city after graduation, many prominent companies are located in San Francisco, such as Gap Inc., Yelp, Pinterest, Twitter, and Craigslist.


Students can take a quick cable car or cab ride from their apartment complex to enjoy the bustling city life of San Francisco. The amazing skyline, top-ranked restaurants, and sophisticated nightclubs make San Francisco the perfect spot for college students to enjoy a fun night out while still easily commuting back to their student housing when the night ends.


San Francisco is full of history and popular tourist attractions. Just a short trip from neighboring student housing will find you at Market Square, Nob Hill, Pier 39, and Little Italy. While enjoying the city, students can also find affordable apartment complexes a short ride from professional sports “must-sees,” such as the San Francisco Giants baseball team at AT&T Park and The San Francisco 49ers at Levi’s Stadium.


Esteemed universities with convenient student housing, such as The University of California, San Francisco, which operates the UCSF Medical Center (one of the top 15 hospitals in the country) and San Francisco State University are available for students. The city is also home to The University of California, Hastings College of the Law—the oldest law school in California—and The City College of San Francisco, one of the largest two-year community colleges in the country.  Great student housing is also located near private campuses, such as the University of San Francisco, Golden Gate University, and The San Francisco Art Institute.
