Need a Reference for your Off-Campus Landlord?
If you have been a tenant in UCSF Housing, we can provide your prospective landlord with a reference. Many tenants find this useful, as future landlords will want this to support your application. As part of a
U.S. educational institution, UCSF Housing Services is bound by some federal privacy laws (FERPA). This law requires that you give permission before we can release information about you.
Please turn in this Tenant Info Release if you would like us to speak with anyone about your UCSF tenancy.
