Overview of San Francisco

When you're looking for cheap apartments in San Francisco, California, Rent.com can help you find one that's within your price range. These types of apartments are perfect for students attending San Francisco State University (SFSU), University of San Francisco (USF) as well as City College of San Francisco (CCSF). You can move to Ingleside or the Balboa Park area to be near the other city college location, or you can move to Bernal Heights, which will put you near the other location. Ashbury Heights is within walking distance of UCSF, so you won't have to worry about being late for class.

Other parts of the city that are more affordable include the Outer Sunset and the Outer Richmond. With convenient access to Golden Gate Park and the beach, these are residential and peaceful places to live. They are noticeably foggier than other parts of the city, though, so be sure to prepare for that.
