Panoramic Residences


Best of Everything!

Panoramic Residences provides the ideal housing alternative for students who want to immerse themselves in everything that makes San Francisco among the 10 "super cities" (best US cities for artists) according to BusinessWeek magazine.

Imagine living within walking distance to the Civic Center and SF Library, and within a short commute to Chinatown, Union Square, and the Ferry Building - with UC Berkeley campus just a 30 minute BART ride away.

What’s more, everything you need to thrive is located in between: farmers markets, shopping venues, great restaurants and cafés, museums and galleries, and much more!

Here at Panoramic Residences you’ll be closer to where you need to be in more ways than one!
