About University of California Hastings College of the Law

What Makes UC Hastings Stand Out?
It might be our location in the heart of San Francisco, near the Civic Center and the local, state, and federal courts. UC Hastings is steps away from every manner of transportation, from streetcars and cable cars, to ferries and BART, San Francisco's subway. Our urban campus is comprised of three buildings containing classrooms, offices, our award-winning library, conference space, student apartments, and numerous amenities, such as the Law Café, the Skyroom, several lounges and study spaces, a basketball court and fitness center.

Campus information

UC Hastings campus spreads among three main buildings located near San Francisco's Civic Center: 200 McAllister Street houses academic space and administrative offices,[6] 198 McAllister contains mainly classrooms and faculty offices, and 100 McAllister (known casually as "The Tower") is student housing

The campus is within walking distance of the Muni Metro and Bay Area Rapid Transit Civic Center/UN Plaza Station. UC Hastings is commonly but affectionately derided by students and alums as being located in the ugliest corner of the most beautiful city in the world. Indeed, the school has been referred to in jest as "UC Tenderloin."

Located within a two-block radius of the campus is the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, the California Supreme Court, the California Court of Appeal for the First District, San Francisco Superior Court, San Francisco City Hall, United Nations Plaza (and Federal Building Annex), the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco, and the Main Library of the San Francisco Public Library system. The heavy concentration of public buildings within the Civic Center, as well as the high crime rate, result in heavy police presence, and high security, around UC Hastings.

Situated in the heart of San Francisco's Civic Center, UC Hastings offers access to every level of the judiciary, with the exception of the U.S. Supreme Court. In addition, many of the city's top attractions are just blocks away.

Accommodation

All students admitted to UC Hastings College of the Law are eligible for residency at McAllister Tower.

Once admitted to UC Hastings, students are eligible to apply for an apartment in the Tower. Apartments are assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once assigned an apartment, students are permitted to live in the Tower for all three years of study.
