What We're Doing to Help

To help you navigate construction-related changes, Transportation Services is:

  • Adding time-limited A and B permit spaces
  • Significantly increasing carpool parking spaces
  • Expanding ADA parking adjacent to the Faculty Club and Muir and Marshall colleges
  • Extending the ProRide Pilot Project for Faculty
  • Implementing pooled reserve areas to limit space lost to reserved parking
  • Offering complimentary ECO Pass (transit pass) trial for new faculty and staff transit riders during Summer Quarter 2018
  • Adding shuttle service on West Campus Connector to preserve frequency while offering a new connection to the Sanford Consortium / Gliderport
  • Piloting a new valet lot near the NTPLLN site during Summer Quarter 2018 with possible continuation for fall

Construction Projects

North Torrey Pines Living and Learning Neighborhood

By the beginning of Fall Quarter 2018, we will open more than 1,400 new parking spaces to help ease some of the parking challenges presented by construction of the North Torrey Pines Living and Learning Neighborhood (NTPLLN). When 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.

Transportation Services will be relocating A and B permit spaces from affected areas to nearby temporary locations.

Watch a video about the NTPLLN project and construction-related impacts.

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.
