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. Remote instruction will continue through the summer, and the University will continue with predominantly remote instruction through the fall semester.

Though all academic buildings are closed, 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 Library Research Commons and first floor lobby will be closed until further notice. Students who do not have access to a computer may request a loaner laptop from the Library by contacting or (415) 338-1420. When emailing, include "Library Loaner Laptop" in the subject line; and when calling, ask for a Library Loaner Laptop. Find other Library services here.

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.
