Medical Student Parking

The ongoing construction around the School of Medicine campus has limited the amount of parking available for students in the adjacent lots.  In addition, there are also a number of construction projects underway throughout campus. To view the affected areas of construction please visit the construction alert site

Many students have adapted to non-parking alternatives, such as carpools, bikes and public transportation.  We recommendation that students who live in nearby areas serviced by the UCSD Shuttle Service or public transportation utilize those services to get to the School of Medicine campus.  the Parking and Commuting Alternatives website is a great resource for planning your commuting options prior to your arrival. 

When students must drive to campus, the Parking and Transportation Department recommends that you park in lots P701, P704, and Canyonview P501. The UCSD East/Regents Shuttle will drop off at the Price Center, and then walk/bike to the School of Medicine campus.  Now you can also twitter@ucsdshuttles for short, timely messages from UCSD shuttles.

We are concerned for your safety while you are studying late on campus and parked further away, and would urge you to make use of the Community Service Officer Program

Finally, you should be aware that if you park off campus, in areas such as UTC, Costa Verde Center, La Jolla Village Square, and the surrounding neighborhood, you may risk a citation and possible towing of your vehicle.  Although the Bus Zone program and free shuttles transport thousand of students, staff and faculty to campus each day, parking at these locations is for business purposes, and the management of these private properties are authorized by law to issue citations and tow vehicles.
