From the Airport

San Diego International Airport - Lindbergh Field (SAN) is the nearest major public airport, about 13 miles south of UCSD. There are a number of shuttles, taxi, and rideshare services around the airport that offer transportation directly to UCSD. As of September 2018, price is roughly $45.00 and the commute time is about 25 minutes (subject to traffic delays).

Driving from North of La Jolla

  • Take Interstate 5 South.
  • Exit on the La Jolla Village Drive offramp.
  • Turn right (continuing West).

Driving from South of La Jolla

  • Take Interstate 5 North.
  • Exit on the La Jolla Village Drive offramp.
  • Turn left (continuing West).

  • La Jolla Village Drive will curve and become North Torrey Pines Road.
  • Turn right at Pangea Drive (continuing East) to enter the campus.  On your left side, you will see the multi-level Pangea Parking Structure.
  • Turn left at Scholars Drive North (continuing North).
  • Immediately, turn left into the Pangea Parking Structure entrance.
  • Park in any of the parking spaces marked with a black-and-white "V", or yellow "S".  Do not park in any of the red "A" spaces, green "B" spaces, or spaces with restricted usage signs (e.g. RESERVED, UC Vehicle Only, etc.).
  • You can buy a visitor parking permit at a pay station kiosk.  As of September 2018, visitor parking permits are $3.00/hour or $30.00/day (prices subject to change).  Don't forget to account for the walking travel time between your parking space and the AP&M building.
  • If you do not have a valid permit on display in your vehicle for the visitor-permitted parking space, you risk being fined by UCSD Police.  As of September 2018, parking citation penalty fines are $65.00+ per violation (fines subject to change).
  • The Applied Physics and Mathematics (AP&M) Building is located a few buildings south of Pangea Parking Structure (about a ~10-minute walk).  See UCSD Maps below.
  • The Front Desk for the Mathematics Department is in Room 7409 on the 7th Floor (exit the passenger elevators and turn right).

Due to campuswide parking congestion/construction and frequently-changing parking lot restrictions/reservations, visitors should arrive early before any scheduled appointments/events in order to obtain a valid parking permit and parking space.
As of June 18, 2018, Parking Lots P207 and P208 closest to AP&M that were listed in older campus maps have permanently closed due to new building construction.
Other nearby parking to AP&M are Parking Lots P206, P302, P303, P304, P308, P416, the Pangea Parking Structure, the Hopkins Parking Structure, and the Osler Parking Structure. Please see Visitor Parking for more detailed information.  Parking without a valid permit of the correct type for the parking space may result in being fined by UCSD Police.  You are responsible for obtaining and displaying the correct parking permit on your parked vehicle at all times.
