Since 1855, the University of San Francisco has shaped and reflected the city that surrounds it. Today, as ever, USF inspires its students to change the world for the better.
The University of San Francisco — a premier, private Jesuit university — reflects the diverse and dynamic city that surrounds it. USF provides students from all backgrounds an education that is intensely personalized, intellectually inspiring, and designed expressly to help them change the world for the better. USF enrolls 6,682 undergraduate and 3,988 graduate students.
USF offers over 100 undergraduate and graduate degree programs and boasts an ever-expanding network of 103,756 alumni who live in all 50 states, six US territories, and 129 countries. The school's 55-acre campus, in the geographic heart of San Francisco, overlooks downtown to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west.
As one of the most diverse universities in the United States, USF delivers the world on a campus. Students from 47 states and 87 countries create a rich environment, and in the best Jesuit tradition, USF welcomes students from all backgrounds — and from all religious faiths or no faith — and invites input from every perspective. The combination of academic rigor and open-minded inquiry creates an atmosphere in which students grow and thrive. USF has produced 270 U.S. judges (including four California Supreme Courts justices); a former United States senator; a California lieutenant governor; two Pulitzer Prize winners; an Olympic medalist; countless priests, nuns, and other religious leaders; educators; police chiefs; corporate CEOs and entrepreneurs; three NBA Hall of Famers; three NFL Hall of Famers; and Alejandro Toledo, the former president of Peru.
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
