2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Because there is little on campus housing for anyone other than freshmen, the off campus housing situation is very competitive. Also, just by virtue of being in the city, housing costs are very high.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Being in San Francisco, the variety of off campus options is wide and varied. The only unfortunate part is that next to no one gives student discounts.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I have had no negative experiences with administration cracking down on school policies.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't party, so I don't know about the scene.

College Freshman

Scholarships: While I did receive merit based aid, it was not money that I applied for, it was offered to me as a part of my acceptance package. As such I am unfamiliar with the process of applying for financial aid.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The options on campus are usually pretty varied, but the hours of the main dining areas are unreliable especially on the weekends.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus the first year is great. First year students are guaranteed housing, and since the campus is small, all of the dorms are close to all of the other buildings as well. What sucks is the process for picking housing for the second year; it is highly competitive as there are few spots on campus for students who are not freshmen.

Off-Campus Dining: off campus dining in the best part of usf and sf except the prices

3 College Junior

Administration: i don't have much to say about this other than that they are pretty strict about alcohol in dorms

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Usf has been very good about my financial aid, the process has always been easy

3 College Junior

Party Scene: if you know people it is fun, but it is very easy to be out of the loop and know of absolutely no parties bc they aren't on/near campus

3 College Junior

Campus Food: it has gotten much better in the last few years, but some is still very bad

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: the freshman dorms at USF are terrible, and they do not offer enough on campus housing

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Like every school you will get what you put into your experience at USF. The resources and events are there to enrich you, though many students don't take advantage of them. Be one of the few who do and you'll have a great time

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far I have had an excellent experience working on my future goals at USF - such as talking with professors about career options and getting extracurricular experience in my planned field of future work

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: You'll probably need scholarships to go here. If you're a good student they will pay for half of your tuition, but if you don't qualify there are a few other options.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

The city of San Francisco serves as an incredible backdrop for the University, which is every bit as fascinating and unique in its own right. USF is an older school with a rich history that dates back to 1855. Though buildings have been renovated to fit the times and more modern demands of students, the University itself strives to maintain a time-honored system of social justice with a strong emphasis on moral, fair education for every student. The five schools at USF offer more than 100 degree programs at the graduate and undergraduate levels, yet maintain an average class size of just 28 students and a student-to-faculty ratio of 15 to 1, so students and faculty get better acquainted than at larger schools. And much like the city itself, USF is incredibly diverse and tolerant. People from all over the world flock to USF, so in coming here, you’re certain to meet students of all ethnicities, religions, and cultures.

USF gives its students the chance to enjoy the intimacy of a small college experience and the big, bright adventures present in a major city. When the campus feels too small or schoolwork becomes too demanding, San Francisco provides an amazing escape. The included MUNI pass makes buses accessible to all students, and as a result, students can take full advantage of the different restaurants, museums, beaches, parks, and nightlife available here in the city. In balancing college life, academics, and the city itself, most students find USF to be a fantastic school set in one of the country’s greatest cities.
