As the campus and the City of San Francisco continue to respond to this public health emergency, most of UCSF's other student services offices are also closing or reducing open hours at physical locations, shifting services online, and offering one-on-one appointments via Zoom or phone.  

Because the situation is changing day by day, please check for updates on the applicable website before going to any office location in person. If there is something that can’t be handled online, contact the service you need by phone or email.
