We are delighted that you have selected San Francisco State University’s residential community as your new home for the 2021-2022 academic year and wish you the best of luck as you create your path into higher education. 


AUGUST 13, 14 & 15


  • Students will be assigned a specific time on one of the above days.
  • Details will be sent to your SF State email upon completion of the Move-in Confirmation form available on the housing portal.


Full details for the fall 2021 Move-in process will be available in early August. 


  • Get Vaccinated for COVID-19
    In order to be able to provide the safest possible congregate housing experience, SF State Housing will be requiring that ALL potential residents are vaccinated prior to the start of the fall 2021 semester. Therefore, all students who have received an SF State Housing reservation for the 2021-2022 academic year must upload proof of COVID-19 vaccination (either one or both doses) or request a medical or religious exemption prior to move-in when completing the Move-in Confirmation form. Failure to upload proof of COVID-19 vaccination or exemption request by July 15, 2021 will result in the administrative cancellation of your housing reservation. Visit our COVID-19 page for more information.
  • Review the 'What to Bring' List
    Given the current health crisis, residents will need to be prepared for potential housing changes and should minimize the amount of personal belongings they bring to campus. Our packing tips and list of items to bring/not bring will guide you on how to pack lightly.
  • Request Your SF State ID Card
    Your SF State ID card is needed for check-in on Move-in Day. If you have not yet received your SF State ID, you can use a government-issued ID to check-in, but you should request your ID as soon as possible. To request your SF State ID, visit onecard.sfsu.edu.
