3150 California St.
San Francisco University High School undertook a Master Planning process in 2018 to evaluate how to best serve our students, faculty and staff within our existing facilities and to look at how we might be able to enhance our campus experience with the development of a property that we own at 3150 California Street. The Master Plan identified the California Street property as well-suited to build a new facility to meet academic and athletic needs of the school as well as to create classrooms and gathering spaces that respond to the needs of 21st Century teaching and learning best practices.

In early 2019 we hired Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects (LMS) to begin to the design of the new California Street building which will also serve as a visible and welcoming second “front door” to UHS along the transit-rich California Street corridor. This new building, of approximately 49,000 square feet, will be required to go through a full review and entitlement process with the City of San Francisco Planning Department which may take 1-2 years.
In June 2020, we initiated our entitlement process with the San Francisco Planning Department with the filing of a Preliminary Project Application. We look forward to sharing updates as the project progresses.
