University of California, Hastings College of the Law Off Campus Apartments

Ready for an Apartment near UCH?

University of California, Hastings College of Law (UC Hastings for short) is the third largest public law school in the US and a part of the UC system. It’s in the beautiful city of San Francisco, right by the city hall and just a couple of blocks from state and federal courts. Going here will really boost your cred, as UC Hastings is ranked #42 on the US News & World Report list for the nation’s top law schools, and has a pretty high bar passage rate. Hastings will provide the hands-on training in court to make you feel like a member of the Law & Order cast…but in real life.

Tower of Hasting

100 McAllister Street, also known as the “McAllister Tower” or simply “The Tower”, is a building dedicated to student housing. More than 300 law students and their families live in this building, because it’s close to classes and student life. However, many students forgo The Tower to live off campus, and San Francisco has a great selection of apartments all over the map. You can choose to live near the hustle and bustle of Hastings, or you can find for something in the quieter parts of the Bay Area. The San Francisco busline Muni and the Bay Area Transit System (BART) are both within walking distance from campus and can easily take you to and from school, no matter where you move!

The City by the Bay

The area around campus is known as Civic Center, because it’s home to SF’s City Hall and many municipal courts and institutions. The Asian Art Museum and the main branch of the San Francisco Public Library are also within walking distance of your classes! If you’re in the mood for some live shows, the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium is right on the Plaza and regularly hosts bands and DJs as they roll through town. Civic Center is just one stop away from the city’s major shopping areas, and only three stops from the piers, where you’ll find all kinds of restaurants, shops, and things to do. San Francisco is a really compact city, but there’s so much to discover in this 7 x 7 mile gem.

  • What neighborhoods in San Francisco are good for eating out?

    San Francisco is chock-full of fabulous eating establishments. Known as "El Corazon de la Misione", the Mission: 24th Street district is a historic, tree-lined neighborhood with one-of-a-kind shops and restaurants. With their own homemade tortilla chips and salsa and slow-roasted pork, Casa Sanchez is a Mission favorite, serving up scrumptious Mexican classics like burritos and enchiladas. North Beach is commonly referred to as San Francisco's "Little Italy" with a plethora of Italian ristorantes, cafes, and delicatessens. Enjoy the candlelit ambience and mouth-watering dinner souffles of Cafe Jacqueline, located in North Beach. Choose from asparagus, spinach, or lobster, each with a cheese base, and don't forget to order one of their heavenly sugar-dusted souffles for dessert!

  • where is the best place to live in san francisco, california for a family of 5?

    Families live all over San Francisco, though the quieter neighborhoods include Pacific Heights, Noe Valley, the Marina, the Richmond, the Sunset and Cole Valley. Avoid the Tenderloin, the Haight and Western Addition.

  • What are the safest neighborhoods in San Francisco for families to get an apartment?

    There are several nice and secure neighborhoods for families such as the Richmond, the Sunset, Noe Valley, and Pacific Heights. Especially, according to crime rates, outer Richmond and bottom of the Sunset are the safest areas in San Francisco. Both the Sunset and Richmond are on the west side of the city, and border Golden Gate Park

  • My husband and I are relocating to the Bay Area in Aug. Want to live in a safe neighborhood close to BART because we will only have 1 car. Is the Panhandle viable for safety and decent rents?

    The Panhandle is kind of far from the closest BART stations, though you could take a bus to the BART, which would take about 20 minutes. The panhandle is a really safe area to live, it is close to Golden Gate Park, the Upper Haight and the Alamo Sqaure district. There are many eucalyptus trees around there so it smells good, too. That area is getting to the western part of the city and away from BART. Some other safe areas near BART would be Noe Valley, the Castro, and parts of the Mission, such as on Dolores Street.

  • How is the public transportation system in San Francisco?

    Excellent. San Francisco is served by the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA). The mix of buses, MUNI (the subway system), and BART (the commuter rail)--and even trolleys and cable cars--can get you virtually anywhere in the city you need to go. The only catch is that you might need to wait some time if your trip requires a transfer. The easiest way to determine the best route to get from Point A to Point B is by visiting transit.511.org and typing in your starting point and destination.

  • What's a good neighborhood for families in San Francisco?

    Noe Valley is a good neighborhood for families in San Francisco. With quaint shops and restaurants along 24th St, Noe Valley's main drag, there's certainly enough to do when taking a stroll, but there are many quiet residential areas tucked away on side streets. With many other families also living in this neighborhood, its community-centric mentality makes for a solid family atmosphere with plenty of playmates for your children. Located between Twin Peaks and Bernal Heights and not too far from Golden Gate Park, this area is also conducive to playing outdoors with kids. The Noe Valley Farmers' Market is held every Saturday from 8 am to 1 pm.

  • what are the best neighborhoods for a young professional woman working in the financial district to live in

    Popular neighborhoods that offer an easy commute to the Financial District, in order of proximity to downtown, are Nob and Russian Hills, North Beach, the Mission, SOMA, Hayes Valley, Lower Haight, Alamo Square and the Marina. All those neighborhoods have bus lines running through them regularly and all have younger renters and active nightlifes. Nob and Russian Hill are a bit quieter and rely on Polk street for commerce, North Beach can be touristy and crowded, but it is easy to walk downtown and there is plenty to do after work, the Mission is a trendy neighborhood with a lively nightlife, SOMA is less of a neighborhood and more of an area with big apartment complexes and Hayes Valley, the Lower Haight and Alamo Square are all a bit west of downtown, but are very popular places to live.

  • Are there local sporting events in San Francisco?

    Yes. In fact, San Francisco is home to several professional and collegiate sports teams. On the professional level, the San Francisco 49ers of the NFL play at Candlestick Park, and MLB's San Francisco Giants play at AT&T Park, which opened in 2000. San Francisco's sports teams of various universities also enjoy a large fan base, including the University of San Francisco Dons, the San Francisco State Gators, and the Academy of Art University Urban Knights. Nearby Oakland is also home to various professional teams, including the Oakland Athletics of the MLB, the Golden State Warriors of the NBA, and the Oakland Raiders of the NFL.

  • Does San Francisco have a good school system?

    San Francisco has quite a good school system relative to the rest of the state, but it is sub par when compared to the rest of the country. Public education is provided by the San Francisco Unified School District. With 118 schools serving over 55,000 students, this district was rated better than 63.4 percent of school districts in California, but only 35.6 percent of school districts in the United States. There are, however, many private schools in the area.
