The University of San Francisco Lone Mountain Conference Center

The conference center was located on the USF campus at 2130 Fulton Street, near the northeast corner of Golden Gate Park. From its 55-acre hilltop refuge, it boasts views of the Pacific Ocean, San Francisco Bay, and the dramatic downtown skyline.

The conference facility is about a 15-20 minute bus ride from the center of San Francisco, between town and the ocean beach. A single bus will take passengers from the ferry terminal building on the Embarcadero through town, past the University and to the beach.

The center is very well equipped, with several lecture halls and dining facilities.
