UCSF is San Francisco's second-largest employer; with locations at several medical centers and various other districts in the city. The School of Nursing Building is part of the UCSF Parnassus Avenue Campus, located in the "Inner Sunset District" neighborhood, on the western side of the city of San Francisco near Golden Gate Park. View campus map (PDF)city map (JPG) or city map (PDF) to see UCSF's Parnassus Campus and Laurel Heights locations.

Enter the Medical Sciences ("S") building at 513 Parnassus Avenue.

UCSF Parnassus Courtyard, S/Nursing Bldg. at right

Upon arriving, note that some buildings cannot be directly viewed from Parnassus Avenue. It may be necessary to pass through the buildings at the curb, using interior stairs or elevators to reach your destination.

In particular, the School of Nursing Building ("N") is positioned uphill and behind the Clinical Sciences ("C") Building at 521 Parnassus Avenue. However, interior hallways connect floors two through seven of building C to building N. Or, enter the Medical Sciences ("S") building at 513 Parnassus.  Behind the second floor of the "S" building is a small courtyard, across the courtyard, the School of Nursing building is to the right (see photo).

Information sessions are usually held in the second-floor classrooms in 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.

You must use elevators or stairways to reach floor levels 2 and 3 of all buildings from the street-level entrances on Parnassus Avenue.
