Presidio Apartment Housing

In 1998, the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry opened a new set of multiple living units in the historic Presidio, consisting of two-, three- and four-bedroom unfurnished apartments. The facility, located on the West side of the Presidio directly across from Baker Beach, is approximately three miles from the dental school. All apartments have hardwood floors, refrigerator, stove, dishwasher and washer/dryer hook-ups. Each unit is assigned one covered parking space.

4 bedroom, 2 bath: $675 – $890/mo* per bedroom

Built in 1776, the Presidio served as a military post under the flags of three nations  Spain, Mexico and the United States. On October 1, 1994, the Presidio became part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, where visitors can enjoy the beauty of its 1,480 acres of historic buildings and natural wooded landscape.

The park offers a small-town neighborhood atmosphere in the heart of an exciting urban area. Though residents have convenient access to the rest of San Francisco and the greater Bay Area, the Presidio is a self-sufficient community with its own law enforcement, fire protection and emergency medical services. Restaurants, a post office, a bank and other services are located within the park.

More than half of the park is open space, including such significant features as Baker Beach, the historic Presidio Forest, Mountain Lake, El Polin Spring and Lobos Creek. The Presidio also offers sweeping views of the ocean and bay, the Golden Gate Bridge and the Marin Headlands. Miles of hiking trails, bike routes and pedestrian paths traverse the park, providing easy access to the waterfront as well as to the park's most picturesque and serene natural areas. In addition, Crissy Field is widely known as one of the premier windsurfing spots on the West Coast. Other recreational amenities include tennis courts, an 18-hole public golf course, playgrounds and athletic fields, gymnasiums, a swimming pool, picnic areas, waterfront parks, campgrounds and a bowling alley.
