Students who are assigned office space at 6363 Alvarado Court are allowed to park in the lot immediately adjacent to the building as are students who are seeing clients at the clinic.  If a student does not fall into either category they will be expected to park on the street or across the street in the large lot behind 6475 Alvarado Road.

Students may purchase a Student Parking sticker if they wish, but most of our students can get by without it since they can walk.  Information on parking permits at SDSU can be found at

UC San Diego

UC San Diego Parking Office offers a 10-day S (student) parking pass for JDP students, free of cost. Once a student has used the 10 days on the permit they may turn it in for another one. S parking spaces on campus are extremely limited. To obtain this permit, go to the Gilman Parking Office, located on the first floor of the Gilman Parking Structure. Ask the cashier for the “Joint Doc Student Permit” and they will mark you off a list.

Students may also buy a parking permit at the Parking Office. For more information on parking permits, visit

At UC San Diego, graduate students, are eligible to buy either an “S” student permit or a “B” staff permit. Student parking is $58 per month and Staff parking is $81 per month. There are also short term permits available and the prices vary with the length of the permit.

There are many buses and trams that run in the area, and trams are always free. There are also a large number of bus routes in the vicinity that are free with the UC San Diego bus sticker, which students can get at either the Parking office on campus, or in Hillcrest at the Bachman Parking Structure. More information on the bus services is here:

We encourage students to use the shuttles or other public transportation as much as possible, as parking at UC San Diego is extremely limited and several large parking lots around the Health Science Campus (where most of you will be working if you are working at UC San Diego) were removed to make room for the construction of new student housing, and no replacement parking has been built yet.
