As housing prices in San Francisco have skyrocketed, UCSF remains committed to finding solutions to keep it affordable for its graduate students and trainees. A recent study showed that housing on its Parnassus and Mission Bay campus sites only meets about 32 percent of the total need. This site, along with our recent partnership with Hastings Law School, could significantly reduce housing constraints for students.
UCSF is evaluating all options for creating new housing that both adds to the University’s overall affordable housing options and simultaneously lessens the UCSF community’s reliance on the city’s general rental market.
In 2015, UCSF purchased three properties from a single owner near its Mission Bay campus as a potential site for student and trainee housing. The parcels at 566, 590 and 600 Minnesota Street, in the Dogpatch neighborhood, contained aging warehouses that the University is replacing with student/trainee housing.
UCSF has worked with neighbors in the Dogpatch area following standard protocols for public engagement to assess plans for the property. UCSF has designated the site for student/training housing in accordance with environmental review and analysis completed under CEQA. This project is scheduled to open in 2019.
