Located in the heart of the Bay Area, near the center of Downtown San Francisco, Golden Gate University has San Francisco's legal and financial districts on one side and the growing "South of Market" corporate corridor on the other.

The Bay Area's nine counties encompasses more than 7,100 square miles of major cities, rugged coastline, bay shoreline, forests, mountains, and open space, including a 76,500 acre national recreation area -- a dramatic setting to live, work and learn.
