More dining choices and convenience

San Francisco is a foodie’s paradise. You asked, and we delivered: the Food Truck Thursdays pilot program at Mission Bay featured a variety of eating choices including Chairman Truck, Kasa Indian, Hongry Kong, and Little Green Cyclo. The popular Wednesday Mission Bay Farmer’s Market is now open all year round; and thanks to a partnership with the UCSF Medical Center, Retail Services opened a larger Walgreen’s store at the Parnassus campus.

Bicycle parking expands

UCSF commuters love their bicycles! As biking continues to become San Francisco’s preferred mode of transport, Transportation Services responded by increasing bike parking capacity on campus with the installation of new racks at Parnassus (MU Garage), Mission Bay, and Mission Center.

Family fun and discounts

Two things that the UCSF community definitely love: entertainment and savings. This year, Arts & Events introduced a new family event at the San Francisco Zoo and welcomed over 300 attendees. New this year, too: discounted E-Tickets for San Francisco’s deYoung Museum and The California Academy of Sciences are now conveniently available 24/7 through the Arts & Events page.

Fitness at Mission Center Building

In effort to create more affordable and accessible fitness facilities for faculty, staff and students, UCSF Fitness & Recreation collaborated with UCPD and opened a new mini fitness center at the Mission Center Building. The workout equipment – treadmill, spin bike, stationary bike, and weights – are also an added benefit for all Premier members.

Green is so in

Campus Life Services supports UC-wide efforts to get to zero waste.

The Mission Bay Conference Center at UCSF replaced bottled water in meeting rooms with water bubblers and water stations, added eco-friendly meeting room tables to eliminate the need for linen, reduced snack packaging, and offered compostable plates, cups, and napkins at its events. Combined with other efforts, the Mission Bay Conference Center won the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on Sustainability’s Team Award for “personalizing” UCSF’s LivingGreen Meeting Certification to their customers.

Real help in real time

When something’s not working, getting it fixed ASAP is your top priority. To improve real-time customer reporting of job actions and status, Facilities Services implemented FMTrack Mobile. This tool allows the Facilities Services staff to be more efficient and increase the accuracy of completing the work orders of our campus customers. In addition, protocols have been updated with the Customer Service Center to help supervisors manage event set-ups more efficiently, reducing errors in the overall process.
