Construction Projects

North Torrey Pines Living and Learning Neighborhood

When North Torrey Pines Living and Learning Neighborhood (NTPLLN) construction begins June 18, 970 parking spaces in lots P207 and P208 will be closed and traffic area patterns and shuttle routes will change.

Special Parking Guidance for the week of June 18

During the week of June 18, the UC San Diego parking team will be working to rapidly reconfigure parking on the west side of the central campus to better support university operations during the summer quarter. A second reconfiguration will occur in late August when the Osler Parking Structure opens.

Thank you in advance for your patience during this transition period. If you haven’t already done so, please subscribe to First to Know to receive updates about the parking areas and shuttle services you use most. We’ll have daily updates to the North Torrey Pines Living and Learning Neighborhood, Marshall College and Muir College lists throughout the transition week.

West Campus Recommended Parking Areas for Week of June 18

Remember that your parking permit comes with “park down” privileges, meaning that A permits are valid in B and S spaces and B permits are valid in S spaces. With school out of session and move-out complete, plenty of open S space will be available for you use during the reconfiguration.

Osler Parking Structure

Construction began June 2017 and will be completed summer 2018. The project site is located at the corner of Gilman Drive and Osler Lane near the School of Medicine. The approximately 1,200-space structure will replace parking lot P604 (250 spaces).

Trolley Extension/Light Rail Transit

Trolley extension construction began on campus fall 2016 and is expected to last until 2021. When completed, the Trolley extension will provide an efficient campus commuting alternative, reduce roadway congestion, improve public transit services and better connect UC San Diego with other areas of San Diego County.

Affected parking lots:

  • Lot P705 is closed for the duration of construction.
  • A small portion of lot P701 is blocked by construction fencing.

Gilman Bridge

Completed in early 2017, the Gilman Drive/ Bridge project reconfigured and widened Gilman Drive from Villa La Jolla east and north towards Voigt Drive to facilitate connection to the Gilman Bridge being constructed by Caltrans. As a result, lot P406 has approximately 90 spaces available on the west side.
