Parking and Directions for Public Lectures

Unfortunately, we no longer provide parking permits to public lecture attendees (unless otherwise noted). Please purchase a permit from a kiosk at any parking structure at UCSD or park in a metered space. Make sure you select a parking space allowed by your permit and be sure the permit is properly displayed.​ Learn more about visitor parking at UCSD.

Handicap/Accessible Parking Information: 

If you have a disabled person placard, you do not need a permit and are allowed to park in any handicap, metered space (no fee required), spaces marked S, B or A. Please make sure your placard is clearly displayed. You are not allowed to park in "reserved" spaces or those which indicate that "a permit must be displayed 24 hrs a day 7 days a week."  While you are more than welcome to park at the Gilman Parking Structure (directions below), there is a parking lot that is in closer proximity to Garren Auditorium: parking lot P602. Please follow steps 1-4 of the directions to reach Gilman Parking Lot, then turn left on Gilman Drive, and left on Russell Lane (1st left). We recommend parking on the far right side of the lot as that is closer to Garren Auditorium. Please visit the following link to review additional information and guidelines: http://transportation.ucsd.edu/parking/accessible.html
