Stay Informed

Be prepared for changes related to campus construction by signing up for First To Know so that you receive timely notification about changes to the parking lots and shuttle routes you use most.

What We're Doing to Help

We are applying the following general mitigations strategies across all projects. 

  • Adding time-limited A and B permit spaces
  • Significantly increasing the number of carpool parking spaces and adding priority parking for two person carpools
  • Expanding accessible parking adjacent to sites where travel paths are disrupted
  • Extending ProRide Pilot Project for Faculty, MSP staff and Post-Docs
  • Implementing pooled reserve areas to limit space lost to reserved parking
  • Offering a complimentary ECO Pass (transit pass) trial for faculty and staff new transit riders who work at La Jolla campus and UC San Diego Health – La Jolla
  • Expanding valet parking in impacted/congested areas
  • Updating shuttle service to improve connections to impacted areas

North Torrey Pines Living and Learning Neighborhood

North Torrey Pines Living and Learning Neighborhood construction began summer 2018. When completed in fall 2020, the neighborhood will include an underground parking structure with approximately 1,200 parking spaces

Affected parking lots:

  • Lot P508 will be closed June 17 through summer quarter 2019 to support critical utility work. 
  • Lots P207 and P208 closed permanently in June 2018 and area traffic patterns and shuttle routes changed.

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 during construction.
  • A small portion of lot P701 is blocked by construction fencing.

Franklin Antonio Hall

Franklin Antonio Hall will add 200,000 gross-square-feet of laboratories, classrooms, faculty offices, meeting space, an auditorium and café to the Jacobs School of Engineering and the Warren College neighborhood.

The project will displace approximately 350 faculty and staff parking stalls from lot P502. Faculty and staff parking will be relocated to the Hopkins Parking Structure, triggering a reduction in commuter student parking. This is one of the changes catalyzing the introduction of differentiated fees for student parking on the central campus and discounted student parking in the Regents lots and Gliderport. Transportation Services is evaluating the introduction of dedicated resident (SR) permit parking in the Hopkins Parking Structure to reduce impacts for Warren and Marshall College Residents. You can submit comments about this and other potential mitigations for Warren and Marshall residents to

Transportation Services will reconfigure parking lot P503 near Jacobs and Atkinson Halls to emphasize short-term parking, including significant short-term visitor parking, short-term A and B permit parking and consolidated reserved parking for department guests. All personal reserved spaces will be relocated to the Hopkins Parking Structure.

Nearby parking lots will also be reconfigured to allow parking in the Warren College neighborhood to work more effectively as a system. Additional 30-minute (unpaid) loading zones will be provided on Equality Lane and Justice Lane (P504) to facilitate Warren College resident access. Visitor parking will be consolidated at P503 and P506.

Triton Transit has added new shuttle stops to the North Campus Shuttle adjacent to Atkinson Hall in addition to stops at Warren College. 

Transportation Services is studying opportunities to add passenger load zones for Lyft/Uber in the Warren College neighborhood. Submit suggestions to

Design and Innovation Building

The Design and Innovation Building is a new 74,000-square-foot collaborative workspace adjacent to Pepper Canyon and the future Pepper Canyon Light Rail Station.

Parking displacement from the project is modest, but significant trucking activity and pedestrian and bicycle circulation changes will begin in mid-August 2019.

Updated trucking and bicycle/pedestrian/vehicle circulation plans will be shared here starting in mid-August 2019.

Lyman/Matthews/Voigt Utility Project

Expect periodic lane closures on Voigt Drive, Matthews and Lyman Lanes.

Primary parking impacts will be isolated to P508 and will largely be complete by the beginning of Fall Quarter 2019.

  • A permit holders will find parking in P502 or the Gilman Parking Structure.
  • Temporary accessible parking spaces will be established in P506 and P509
  • Reserved and accessible parking has been distributed to adjacent parking areas.
