San Diego International Airport


There are many hotel options in the San Diego and La Jolla area within a reasonable distance to UC San Diego.  Here are a few directly surrounding the local area or favorites of our visitors.  The “SDSC Visitor Information” link below provides a broader list.  Many of the local hotels will offer a university discount.  Most discounts will require a phone call. 

Surrounding Campus

If the discounted rate is available, it will populate.  If it’s not available, then the best available rate at that time will populate.

Additional Favorites

Parking & Transportation

Permits are required when parking on campus. The Hopkins Parking Structure sits just to the south of SDSC and west of Qualcomm Institute.
