Park Merced is a large community located next to San Francisco State University. Park Merced consists of apartments and townhouses that are occupied by many SFSU students. The muni line located at one end of the neighborhood makes it easy to access all areas of San Francisco. It is a relatively quiet, clean neighborhood which consits of a gym, parks, and cheap cooking classes for Park Merced residents.

This is a great place to live if you are more comfortable in a suburb environment; also perfect if you have young kids or are a student going to San Francisco State and can afford off campus housing. It is safe, quiet, and very green here with little parks and benches everywhere. This is a haven for those who want to live in an apartment building, have parking and a safe, clean, quiet neighborhood. It is also relatively inexpensive.

Parkmerced is a large housing complex that’s located just off 19th Avenue near San Francisco State University in the lower southwest corner of San Francisco. There are a variety of housing options from 3 bedroom townhomes to high-rise flats (with studio, 1, 2 or 3 bedroom/bath options). It’s a convenient place for San Francisco State students because most of the townhomes and high rises are within a ten minute walk to the University, while still being far away enough to make you feel like you are living off campus. Rent is reasonable if you sharing a townhome or apartment (most students group together and share the cost of a home or flat). This particular building is a high rise located on the edge of Daly City. The walk to campus from this building is 10 to 15 minutes. The 28 bus going towards Daly City Bart stops right outside this building, making it convenient for those who need to go to Bart, or if you want to make a quick trip to Daly City to catch a movie or grab a bite to eat (there area plethora of Pilipino food and chain restaurants in Daly City). This building also has a good number of coin-operated laundry machines.

This neighborhood is adjacent to San Francisco State University, making it an ideal location for new students who can't afford to live on-campus ($700-$900/mo. for your own room). The colonial style homes are uncommon elsewhere in San Francisco, and feature hardwood floors and convenient access to laundry. It's heavily populated with students, meaning parties are common.
