Below is some parking information for people who intend to drive to the campus. More information is available here.
- Parking is free on Friday and Saturday.
- On Wednesday and Thursday, participants can purchase parking permits from Pay Stations located in parking lots throughout campus. These permits are valid in V (Visitor), S (Student), or B (Staff) spaces. These permits are not valid in A (Faculty) spaces during the daytime. The daily rate is $8.00, except in the Gilman Parking Structure, where the rate is $16.
- We recommend that you park in the lot P406 (which is in the purple area on the right side of the campus map), and it has a Pay Station. Click here for a map of the location of the Pay Stations.
- On Wednesday and Thursday, those with UC Faculty or Staff permits from other campuses can go to the parking office and show their UC parking pass and UC identification to obtain a UCSD Day Pay.
The parking office is located in the Gilman Parking Structure, which also has meters for short-term parking while one goes into the parking office to obtain the permit.
