UC San Diego's charging networks use non-proprietary, J1772, CCS and Chademo plugs. Tesla uses a proprietary plug. Tesla drivers are welcome to use the UC San Diego networks by connecting the J1772 adapter that came with their vehicle and are encouraged to use the Chargepoint app or a neutral application like Plugshare to view charging options outside of Tesla's network of proprietary chargers.
