Construction Projects

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.
