Thank you for your patience in reaching the SF State Housing Office. SF State University is currently experiencing hardware failure of its voicemail system. As a result the number of telephone lines connected to the housing office is reduced to a single line that does not allow callers to be put on hold or leave a message. The Housing Office apologizes for the inconvenience and is working with the University Technology Services to have the problem resolved. Please use the housing office email at to receive expedited service.
