Housing requires that students have their San Francisco State ID card (OneCard) at the time of check-in to expedite the process. If you do not have your ID card on your assigned move-in day you can pick it up from the OneCard office or provide any form of government issued identification card when checking in.  

OneCard Office | Student Services Bldg. (SSB), 1st Floor 
Move-in Day Hours | August 18: 12 pm—3 pm , August 19/20: 9 am—3 pm

More information about SF State ID cards can be found at the OneCard website.

Meal plans included in the License Agreement will be automatically activated when you check in with your San Francisco State ID card at your scheduled move-in time. Students who are approved to move-in after hours or don’t yet have their SF State ID can give their name to the front desk at City Eats to have their meal applied to their account. View the Move-in Guide for dining options on Move-in Day. 

All mail should be addressed to the resident's legal name and include the last 5 digits of their San Francisco State ID #.

Proceed to the Community Front Desk of your assigned building to request a temporary key. Proper ID will be required to confirm identification and occupancy.

Please note:

  • Temporary keys are loaned out for no more than 72 hours. If the temporary key is not returned within this timeframe, an automatic lock change may be initiated for security purposes and a $50 fee will be charged to the resident's account.
  • If the lock change is initiated, locks/keys to the resident's room and mailbox will be changed and all residents (where applicable) will be notified to pick up keys at the Resident Services Community Desk.  
  • Residents are allowed ONE courtesy lockout per semester. Any subsequent lockouts will be deemed excessive and for safety reasons, may warrent a lock change at a cost of $50/lock change. Excessive lockouts may also require residents to verify possession of room keys and/or a meeting with the Area Coordinator for Resident Services.
