With the return to on-campus teaching and learning for the Academic Year 2021/22, SF State will continue updating building access protocols to promote the health and safety of our campus community.
All Buildings Are Open
SF State’s plans for reopening are guided by public health information and guidelines. We are proceeding with caution and care to determine courses of action to create safe work and learning environments while also accommodating the anticipated increased number of students, faculty and staff returning to campus for in-person instruction.
All campus buildings are open for in-person classes and on-campus business operations. Building with card-access implemented, including housing and research facilities, are only permit assigned students, faculty and staff into their respective buildings. For more information, please contact a building coordinator.
