About San Francisco Student Housing

SFSH is a student housing building in Lower Nob Hill located just blocks from downtown with easy access to the city’s top universities. We offer the most competitive rates for off-campus housing through a mixture of furnished doubles, triples and quads, as well as apartment-style units called garden cottages.

Our building caters to students across the academic spectrum. Medical students from University of San Francisco cook next to Zoology majors from San Francisco State University; City College coders work tables away from Blush School of Makeup freshman; School of Digital Filmmaking seniors collaborate with musicians from Pyramind.

SFSH is part of the Music City San Francisco Project, a unique network of musician’s services designed to foster creativity and create support within the community while paying homage to San Francisco’s rich musical history. This is a one of a kind mixed-use space in the heart of San Francisco already housing and servicing musicians through its affordable living quarters and music rehearsal studios. Construction is now underway for music education services, a live performance space, café and bar, music history museum and more. Rudy Colombini’s dream to honor the musical history of The City while offering a space to unite and educate musicians of the present and future is coming alive at Music City San Francisco.

rudycolombiniA message from owner Rudy Colombini
I was born and raised in San Francisco and I’ve seen the city change a thousand times over, but never before has it been so difficult for students and those in the arts to make ends meet.

San Francisco Student Housing is my answer to the housing conundrum. It’s more than just an affordable place to stay. The design and ambiance of San Francisco Student Housing is based on the Summer of Love, an iconic and creative time in San Francisco. My goal is to go beyond the traditional student housing experience and give residents a unique home that is firmly connected to the soul of the city. The city will continue to change. I want to make sure that students can always have a place to live and collaborate in San Francisco.
