Help For Student Housing

Supervisor Scott Wiener has called for the city to encourage more housing for San Francisco’s 82,000 college students. The District 8 supervisor says “providing housing for students is a key part of addressing our housing crisis, and students have different needs than families and long-term residents, generally requiring less space.” He suggested that building space designed for students would free up other rental space for nonstudents in the city’s rental stock.
