What you need to know

The University is open, and limited on-campus operations continue. With few exceptions, however, building access remains restricted. For details, visit the Building Access page.

Face coverings must be worn for any face-to-face, on-campus operations. The state of California requires that face coverings be worn in situations in which physical distancing is not possible, unless an exception applies. Read the June 18, 2020 public health order, including information about exceptions, and the latest guidance from the San Francisco Department of Public Health.

Planning for Spring 2021

Students’ health and safety is our paramount concern at SF State. In coordination with the California State University Chancellor’s Office, we will determine what forms of instruction we can deliver safely in the spring. (See our fall plans in a previous message posted May 12.) We hope to announce in October. The latest guidance and ordinances from the State of California, the City and County of San Francisco and the San Francisco Department of Public Health will guide the decision making process, with the understanding that our plans may be subject to change, based on the unpredictable environment surrounding the COVID-19 public health crisis. 

SF State is committed to delivering a comprehensive educational experience and support services and activities to all our students, regardless of the mode of instruction.
