University Property Management
University Property Management contributes to the educational mission of the University by delivering quality housing accommodations and related business and facilities services to our student residents, business partners, and the campus community. The department strives to engage in planning and decisions that build upon the shared values within Physical Planning & Development (PP&D):
- Collaborative and Supportive
- Integrity and Trust
- Professional and Diverse
- Safe and Responsible
- Sustainable and Healthy
University Property Management (UPM) hosts residents and guests within its managed communities in the traditional residence halls and at the University Park Apartments, and provides hospitality for the University through its conference centers, food service contractor and suites. The department also provides property management services for University leased properties, including the Downtown Campus at 835 Market Street, and for the Romberg Tiburon Center, a 35-acre research site on San Francisco Bay. The department is a diverse organization with professional staff encompassing residential licensing, fiscal services, skilled trades, housekeeping, landscaping, technology services, event planning and related property and hospitality services.
DEMOLITION OF THE FORMER SCHOOL OF THE ARTS
SF State University acquired the former San Francisco Unified School District School of the Arts (SOTA) located on Font Boulevard at Tapia Drive to convert the site into an outdoor recreation area for students that will be completed by Spring 2013.
The demolition of all structures on the site is now complete. Parking spaces fronting the property along Font Boulevard are temporarily closed and a pedestrian path has been created in the parking lane adjacent to the sidewalk, while site work and replacement of the sidewalk are underway. The contractor has posted City-required signage to alert pedestrians that work is in progress. Capital Planning, Design & Construction will monitor pedestrian access during construction.
As of November 27, 2012, the pathway located immediately south of the Village at Centennial Square will be closed to pedestrians and remain closed until early spring 2013. Vehicular access to the Village parking level will remain open. This closure is necessary for construction of new pathways which will in part replace the existing pathway along this edge of the new multi-purpose playfield.
Alternate Access: Alternate accessible pedestrian pathways are located either through the Village at Centennial Square (accessed via elevator at west end) or along the pedestrian pathway immediately south of the Towers at Centennial Square. Signage will be posted advising the campus community of these detours.
