You may need temporary, short-term housing when you first arrive in San Francisco, while you are looking for a permanent place to live. It is important to have temporary housing before you come to San Francisco. The Center for Global Engagement is not able to find housing for you.
Hostels (youth hostels) are cheaper than hotels, but you must share a room with several people. Residence hotels usually require a stay of one week or more and give a furnished room, meals, bed sheets and bath towels. Residence hotels may require that you pay a money deposit in advance in order to save a room.
The hotels and motels listed here are close to SF State main campus and are good for a short stay of one week or less because they can be expensive:
