With more than 20 locations throughout San Francisco and beyond, UC San Francisco is an industry of its own, contributing greatly to the intellectual vigor and economic vitality of the City by the Bay.  The School of Nursing building is part of UCSF's Parnassus Heights campus, which is located in the Inner Sunset district on the western side of San Francisco.

The School of Nursing building ("N" on campus maps) is positioned uphill and behind the Clinical Sciences ("C") building at 521 Parnassus Ave. To reach the School of Nursing building, enter the Medical Sciences ("S") building at 513 Parnassus Ave. Proceed up the staircase and through the sliding glass doors to a small courtyard called Saunders Court. Or alternatively, you may use the elevators instead of the stairs. The School of Nursing building is accessible from Saunders Court.

Information sessions are usually held in the second-floor lecture halls of the School of Nursing building, or in the Health Sciences West Tower ("HSW"). Because of the steep terrain, the ground-level floor of the Nursing building is floor number two, and the ground-level floor of HSW is floor number three.
