5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in the Towers and I love it. I only have one other roommate and we both share the same ethnicity and religious beliefs. If I had the choice to always live in the Towers, I would not mind it at all. The space is great and the furniture is great. I am loving it here.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The towers/village are great, the Marys are moldy, tiny and sad. Ups is great, upn is hit or miss. Way expensive.

Campus Housing: The rooms aren't huge but they aren't small either. I stayed in Mary Park Hall. The people are friendly. I might have saw my RA once in the entire time I was there.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Living in the dorms was a great experience, we had coed dorms which was a real change in my lifestyle growing up. I made a lot of friends in the dorms which was an amazing experience where I have made life long friends. The food late night isn't a thing. The village market is the only place open and its always packed with people coming back from parties. I wish there was more food options late night around campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The Village is relatively new, and those are pretty nice. Towers are cool too. The Mary's are small and cramped. Not a place I would want to live.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The cheapest dorms are Mary Park and Mary Ward, but they are awful, stinky, and just have this old-timey sense about them. If you can afford it, room in the Village, the nicest dorms available. They are roomy, and they just look like cool apartments (minus the nice fridge). Otherwise, take your chances in the Towers, which resemble small apartments once meant for two people but squeezed to fit four. However, despite the crampedness, it can be really quiet in the Towers.

If you are a freshman or incoming transfer student, it would be wise to try your best to live in the dorms, no matter the reviews. At a commuter school, the best thing to be is on campus the majority of the time. Campus housing really allows for real friendships and connections, and to find out all of what San Francisco State has to offer because those who live off campus really find it hard to meet anyone on campus and fufill that sense of community.
