New Parking Facilities

The campus community has clearly expressed the need for more parking. As a self-sustaining auxiliary service, parking must cover all costs associated with operating and expanding the parking system. Parking revenue also funds campus mobility programs, including our intra-campus shuttles, Triton Transit.

Last academic year, we completed the Osler Parking Structure (1,350 stalls) and Campus Point Parking Expansion (275 stalls). This year, we opened the Nuevo West (Vela) Parking Structure (500 commuter stalls) and will break ground on the Voigt Transit Operations Center. Next academic year, we will open North Torrey Pines Living Learning Neighborhood Parking Structure and break ground on Theatre District Parking Structure. Parking facilities currently in construction, design, planning or under study include:

Project Status Anticipated Delivery Number of Stalls
North Torrey Pines Living and Learning Neighborhood Completed Fall 2020 1,134
Theatre District Living and Learning Neighborhood Construction Fall 2023 ~1,150
Hillcrest Medical Center Structure Design 2023 ~2,400
SIO Parking Structure Study TBD TBD
University Center/Health Sciences Structure Study TBD TBD

Rapid consolidation of parking facilities and addition of parking capacity means that new debt will come online before old debt is retired. This is financially sustainable but will require modest annual increases to permit rates and sharing the cost of developing and operating parking across all users of campus parking facilities.
