In 1901, several literary reading groups from the YMCA in San Francisco assembled to create what would one day be known as Golden Gate University. While, according to some estimates, less than one percent of men had a college education at the time of the school's establishment, Golden Gate University grew to the seven-college institution that exists today, educating men and women who live in homes and apartments throughout California and the Northwest. Today, students pursue study at GGU primarily for post-graduate instruction in law, business and accounting. Because it is a commuter school with no residential students, many of its enrollees are working professionals who rent apartments near Golden Gate University's main campus in San Francisco.
Students who commute to Golden Gate University from their nearby apartments in the city's South of Market district may undertake their study at one of several campuses. The University is comprised of the Golden Gate University School of Law, the Ageno School of Business, and separate schools for taxation and accounting programs. However, students may rent Golden Gate University in other areas, near the university's newer satellite campuses. For instance, a learning site in Los Angeles contains the School of Taxation, a Monterey Bay location holds programs in accounting, business and information technology, and campuses in Roseville, Silicon Valley, and Seattle, Washington, provide instruction in similar fields.
Students with Golden Gate University apartments are typically very busy between work and school, but the South of Market district offers them much in the way of leisure. The area is known for its nightclubs, art spaces and loft apartments, and also includes the Yerva Buena Center for the Arts, the Cartoon Art Museum, a bowling alley and an ice skating rink.
