University Housing at San Francisco State began in the 1950s in a converted barracks building as an attempt to provide student families with housing. The program has since grown to offer thousands of students, faculty, staff, and grandfathered residents a wide array of housing options to support their educational mission. In addition to housing, HDCS supports dining options for students and guests, summer conference programs, and event management for campus constituents and external clients.
