Eligibility Requirements

UCSF Housing Services’ mission is to provide quality university housing and related services to Students, Postdocs, Residents, Clinical Fellows and Faculty. The following groups were identified as a priority by the campus Long Range Development Plan and the Chancellor’s Advisory Committee on Housing. These priority groups are not determined solely by the department of Housing Services.

Please be advised that UCSF tenants are subject to 2-year term limits in campus housing.  After staying in your assignment for 24 months, you will be required to move and find alternative housing accommodations. Term limits are cumulative in a lifetime, regardless of university affiliation or break in tenancy.

A change in eligibility status, to an ineligible title code or affiliate group, during the term of an Agreement will render the Tenant no longer eligible for housing.  Tenants will have 30 days from the date of graduation or disaffiliation from their status to move out (vacate) their unit, even if they are continuing at UCSF.

Contained here are specific definitions for these priority groups.

Faculty and Senior Leadership Group
The focus of the Faculty Housing program is to provide housing for the recruitment and retention of UCSF faculty members and executive administrators in the Senior Leadership Group, such as deans and department chairs. Faculty housing is offered by the University to be a transitional help to faculty members and senior leaders as they search for off-campus housing. It is not intended as long-term or as “permanent” rental property. Housing Agreements are minimum 6 months.

Faculty and Senior Leader appointments must be at least 50% paid FTE in any one of these eligible title codes, and verified through employee payroll (OLPPS). The faculty member or senior leader is automatically ineligible for campus housing if he or she leaves the faculty or senior leadership title code series appointment for any reason, even if she or he remains affiliated with UCSF.

Senior Leadership Group

MSP 6,
MSP 7,
MSP 8,
MSP 9,
