McAllister Tower, one block away from the school’s academic and administrative buildings, is an iconic San Francisco building. Formerly the Empire Hotel, it once featured a full-scale church on its ground floors and was one of San Francisco’s tallest structures. Now part of the National Register Uptown Tenderloin Historic District, UC Hastings’ residential center holds 252 efficiency, studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments on 17 floors.
Our unfurnished efficiency units are approximately 250 sq. ft. These units fit a twin size bed best to allow space for a table, a chair and bookcase. We allow only one person in the efficiency units so if you plan to invite out of town guests, you will want to plan accordingly.
All units include a full bathroom, a modular kitchen unit and ample closet space. The modular kitchen unit includes a dorm size refrigerator, sink with disposal and 2 to 3 burner stove with oven.
