Read below for some accommodation tips.

Staying in Downtown San Francisco

San Francisco State University can be reached by many hotels in downtown San Francisco by the Muni light rail on the M line going outbound. We recommend staying at a hotel in walking distance of a Muni light rail station. Check out the links below for some google maps showing hotels and example trips to SFSU.

Staying by San Francisco International

Airport: If you’d like to stay near SFO, this is also quite convenient.  Although farther away, you can see that the estimated trip time by car is quite short.  Trips are shown directly from SFO.

Staying in the South Bay

If you choose to stay in south bay area, the best way to reach the SFSU campus would be to drive. Please drive to State Drive, San Francisco, CA 94132 which takes you directly to the parking garage.

Of course there are other options as well, but these are some easy ones.
