In San Francisco, Colleges and Universities Struggle to House Students

Providing student housing has continued to be a problem for the many higher education institutions in San Francisco. That’s why I authored legislation to provide incentives to educational institutions to build their own housing. Additionally, I banned the conversion of apartments to be used exclusively for student housing.

KQED recently covered a hearing I held on this issue as part of a broader article on the difficulties resulting from San Francisco's lack of affordable student housing. You can read the full article here.
