Due to high housing costs, students are being priced out of San Francisco, and many universities are finding it increasingly difficult to attract new talent. But after years of little production, thousands of student housing units are now in the planning or construction stages throughout the city. Find out what’s in the pipeline and how these projects came to be. Co-presented by the San Francisco Housing Action Coalition (SFHAC).
