Accessing Student Services During the COVID-19 Outbreak

March 17 – As the campus and the City of San Francisco continue to respond to this public health emergency, most of UCSF student services offices are closing or reducing open hours at physical locations, shifting services online, and offering one-on-one appointments via Zoom or phone.

We wanted you to know that – even though you may not see us on campus as much – we are still working hard, and we are doing everything we can to support you and maintain the same level of service.

Because the situation is changing day by day, please check for updates on our website. If there is something that can’t be handled online, contact us by phone or email.

Your health and wellbeing and your continued academic success remain our top priorities. Please don’t hesitate to reach out, if we can help you during this especially challenging period.

First Generation Support Services

Did you know that 30% of UCSF students identify as First Generation to College? We support and celebrate the educational journey of students who are among the first in their family to attend college.

First Generation Support Services (FGSS) serves the students whose parents/caregivers did not graduate from a four-year college. We are thrilled you’re here, you’re not alone, and you belong. Register with our office!
