SF State Campus Plan

What you need to know

San Francisco State University is committed to its mission of equity and social justice while providing world-class education during the COVID-19 health crisis. The safety and welfare of our students, faculty, staff, and surrounding Bay Area communities are the University's top priority in the 2020-2021 academic year. Consequently, the guiding principle for our planning efforts is to bring the smallest number of students, faculty and staff to campus for in-person instruction and support activities.

Our plan attempts to ensure that the University delivers a comprehensive educational experience and support activities while in remote modalities. For the 2020-21 academic year, San Francisco State courses will be predominantly offered virtually, with extremely limited exceptions for courses which require some measure of in-person instruction or activities. Classrooms and other public spaces have been reconfigured to accommodate physical distancing requirements. University housing is also limited to a small number of residents, accommodating only those students who require housing to continue their education. Campus events and ceremonies have been canceled or redesigned as virtual events.
