San Francisco State has suspended face-to-face classes and has implemented remote instruction and services to limit the potential for COVID-19 to spread within our community. Remote instruction will continue through the end of the spring semester.

From the March 23, 2020 issue of the CampusMemo:

As part of efforts to curtail the spread of COVID-19, SF State has significantly reduced the population on its campuses by limiting on-campus operations to necessary offices and moving the majority of staff and faculty to working using remote modalities. Though all academic buildings will be closed through April 7 at a minimum, a few University offices remain physically open. For the most up-to-date information, visit the webpages for each respective office or find links at the University’s COVID-19 website under the Offices Open on Campus section.

The J. Paul Leonard Library will be closed March 21–29 for Spring Recess and on March 31 for Cesar Chavez Day. On other days the Library building will remain open with limited access and hours. However, the first-floor Research Commons and the lobby and café will be open only to current students, faculty and staff with an SF State ID during the hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The One Stop Service Center on the first floor of SSB has closed. The Undergraduate Admissions and Student Outreach Services units continue to operate remotely, answering emails and phones. Future students should send their inquiries or updates to or call (415) 338-6486.

Still have questions? The University has created an online Ask a Question form for COVID-19 queries.
