Welcome to SF State!

Hello Future Gator Family,

The health and safety of our campus community are SF States highest priorities. To mitigate the spread of COVID-19 the university has cancelled all on-and-off campus events through May 31st, 2020. These cancelled events include:

  • Gator Days
  • Admitted Student Receptions

We invite you to attend Make the SF Connection- A Virtual Experience for Admitted Students and Families

Join us on https://future.sfsu.edu/connect website to celebrate your admission to San Francisco State University. Explore Zoom Sessions that are designed to answer your questions about majors, student resources, to getting involved on campus! Download presentations that provide an overview on Next Steps for First- Freshmen and international students, Bursar Office, Division of Equity and Community Inclusion and more.  You can make that a dream a reality at SF State!

Can I still visit San Francisco State University for a tour?

All guided campus tours are cancelled. We will re-evaluate the status of future guided campus tours on April 7th, 2020 or sooner based on reccomendations from the San Francisco Department of Public Health. We encourage all students interested in seeing the campus to instead do a virtual  tour, which also includes our housing community.
