Accommodations & Getting Around SF

> ZLUC 2023 San Francisco > Accommodations & Getting Around SF

We looked into the dorms at USF but unfortunately they were not available to be booked for this event. Weโ€™re sorry about that, but we did try!

Lodging in the Bay Area can be a little more on the pricey side compared to other cities in the United States so we want attendees to know that:

  • Both ZLuC locations are easy to get to via public transportation
  • We do not endorse hotels ๐Ÿ™‚ just offering as potential options on this list

The majority of hotels in San Francisco are downtown and closer to SFPL. Hotels near USF are few and far between, since the university is in a residential area close to Golden Gate Park. ZLuC attendees looking to book a hotel might consider these options:

You can also look at hotels through websites like Kayak,, or Expedia to compare prices of hotels.

Other Lodging Options

Lombard street has a number of motels that may be a little further from the venue but a little more economical. If you select a motel on Lombard between Fillmore and Van Ness you will be a short walk from a single bus ride to either venue.

There are a number of hostels in San Francisco and this travel blog has compiled a list.

Folks might have better luck looking at AirBnb or Vrbo and look in adjacent cities like Oakland, Berkeley, or Daly City. The Bay Area has public transportation that can get you to both ZLuC sites.
