There's so much to see here at UC San Diego. Download our guide and find out what's going on.
Our campus tours don't include visits to classrooms or residence halls. Take a virtual tour of typical residence hall rooms or on-campus apartments online. Or plan ahead and visit classes in session (PDF). You can visit classes in session during the regular academic year (September to June).
There's always something to do, for everyone in the family — on campus or in the immediate vicinity — take a look.
We look forward to welcoming you to the UC San Diego campus and showing you the student-perspective!
