Employee & Family Housing COVID-19 Information & Updates


  • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol.
  • Public areas (lobbies, elevators, laundry rooms, etc.) and high-touch areas (door knobs, elevator buttons, etc.) will be disinfected frequently by the University. We also recommend that you clean and disinfect any frequently touched objects and surfaces in your apartment.

Face Coverings

Members of the San Francisco State University community are required to wear something that covers their nose and mouth when on campus. In addition, residents must wear a mask or face covering when entering and traversing buildings in the housing community and must follow guidelines provided by the City and County of San Francisco and the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).   


When outside your home, stay at least 6 feet away from others who don’t live in your household. 

Health Screening

Requirement for Faculty & Staff when on campus: During Stay-at-Home or Shelter-in-Place guidelines, residents are expected to be engaged daily with the University’s health declaration process and must demonstrate a health “green badge” to gain access to University facilities outside of their own residence apartment building.
