Overview

The University of San Francisco (USF) is a Jesuit Catholic university, with the school's main campus is located on a 55-acre (22 ha) setting between the Golden Gate Bridge and Golden Gate Park. The main campus is nicknamed the "The Hilltop", and part of the main campus is located on Lone Mountain, one of San Francisco's major hills. In addition, the university offers classes at four Northern California branch campuses (Sacramento, San Jose, Santa Rosa, and Pleasanton), at a Southern California branch campus, and at locations in downtown San Francisco, including the Folger Building at 101 Howard Street, and at the Presidio.

The University of San Francisco — a premier Jesuit university — is a reflection of the inclusive, inspirational, innovative city that surrounds it. The university provides students from all backgrounds an education that is intensely personal and intellectually demanding.

For them, reason, religion, science, and spirituality are complementary. Their students see the world with a sense of awe and wonder, and with a curiosity for answers to the world’s most complex questions.
