Commute to Campus


Under University of California policy, anyone who parks at UC San Diego must pay a fee to help support construction, maintenance and administration of parking facilities.

Parking Payment Required 7 Days a Week

You must have a valid parking permit associated with your license plate or choose daily or hourly visitor parking.

  • Main campus — 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., weekdays, 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday and Sunday
  • Scripps Institution of Oceanography — 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., 7 days a week
  • UC San Diego Health – Hillcrest — 24 hours/7 days a week
  • UC San Diego Health – La Jolla — 24 hours/7 days a week

Please note, the purchase of a parking permit does not guarantee a space to park. Additionally, a lack of space is not considered valid justification for violation of UC San Diego parking regulations.
