Parnassus Heights Overview

Built in 1897 on land originally contributed by Adolph Sutro, former mayor of San Francisco, the University of California, San Francisco includes the 107-acre Parnassus campus that is home to graduate professionals in dentistry, medicine, nursing and pharmacy; a graduate division for predoctoral and postdoctoral scientists; UCSF Medical Center; UCSF Children’s Hospital; and Langley Porter Psychiatric Institute.

UCSF, which encompasses several major sites in San Francisco in addition to its Parnassus Heights location above Golden Gate Park, also includes UCSF Mount Zion and maintains partnerships with two affiliated institutions, San Francisco General Hospital Medical Center and the Veterans Affairs Medical Center. It is the only UC campus dedicated exclusively to the health sciences. And by virtue of the quality of its faculty, the excellence of its patient care, the scope of its many outreach programs and the many discoveries of its scientists, UCSF — part of the University of California since 1873 — is considered one of the nation’s premier health sciences teaching, training and research centers.
