Location, Location, Location!
Going to college in a big city will allow you to have a plethora of options when it comes to many things from internship opportunities to dining establishments.

And keep in mind that your views of the ocean, the city and its colorful neighborhoods will make for great images to share with your family back at home! The campus is located under 20 minutes away from the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, and about five minutes away from the coastline. The nearest U-Haul to campus is just a few minutes away, and there are also plenty of other U-Haul locations in the neighborhood.
Housing In The City
Living in a busy city can mean housing will be expensive and hard to find, but the university offers different housing options including a variety of housing styles from dorms to apartments (there’s even a virtual tour).

Moving To The University
Are you prepared to make the move to campus? Don’t have a printed map of the school? Do you have a smart phone? The university has a downloadable app that will help give a tour! Make sure you keep it handy on moving day so you can navigate from your parking spot to your dorm room; however if you would like to avoid the confusion and chaos of moving in with thousands of over students, try packing your stuff at home and having it shipped and delivered to your dorm. Collegeboxes will help students with this easy service and it’s a great alternative.
