In California, students are one of the demographics most affected by the state’s housing shortage and affordability crisis. This is especially true for San Francisco-based students as they must grapple with living in one of the country’s most expensive and inaccessible housing markets.
There’s new reason for optimism, though, as HAC member UC College of the Law, San Francisco prepares to unveil its multi-institution “academic village” located in the Tenderloin neighborhood.
Scheduled to open this summer, the village will feature a 656-unit student-housing complex at 198 McAllister Street. The entire complex will be available to UC Law SF students as well as students from UC Berkeley, San Francisco State University, University of San Francisco, and University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry.
HAC has long-supported critically-needed student housing projects such as this, and we’ve been gratified to work alongside HAC Board member and UC Law SF Chief Financial Officer David Seward over the years to help move this innovative approach to development forward. Onward!
