University of California, San Diego

July 7, 1999
SUBJECT: Transportation and Parking at UCSD
As Director of Transportation and Parking Services, I would
like to welcome you to the San Diego campus of the University
of California.

Our Rideshare pages at http://parking.ucsd.edu/ride/ride.html outline many of the services our department has developed to help students live at UCSD without a car. If, however, you choose to bring a car to campus, please note that state law requires all University of California campuses to maintain their parking facilities without the use of state funds. Parking fees are used for the construction, operation, maintenance, and administration of these facilities. Most parking lots are divided into red (faculty/physicians), green (staff and graduate students), and yellow (undergraduate) sections. As the campus proceeds with an aggressive construction schedule to build additional, convenient structure parking, permit rates are being adjusted to fund these new projects. The rate increases adopted for 1999/2000 will continue this funding process. Information on these projects and updated construction schedules can be found at

NOTE: The charges for an annual permit will be billed by the University Bursar's Office to your home address. If you will be parking on campus for at least two quarters, you may elect to divide the annual charge into quarterly installment payments. If you will only attend one quarter, a Quarterly permit is recommended. HOW TO PRE-ORDER A PARKING PERMIT If you plan to park on campus beginning this September, we advise you to pre-order your parking permit. This can be done on-line, via StudentLink at: https://www-act.ucsd.edu/cgi-bin/studentlink.pl/1/students/finances/parking You will need your student ID number (P.I.D.) and personal access code (P.A.C.) in order to login. If you are not able to access StudentLink or do not feel comfortable ordering your parking permit in this manner, you may pre-order your permit via telephone, from August 16, 1999, through September 17, 1999. Phone the Parking Office between 9:00 A.M. - 2:00 P.M., Monday through Friday, at (858) 534-4223. Have your P.I.D. number ready and be prepared to declare what type of permit you wish to pre-order and your preferred payment plan. Orders received by September 17, 1999 may be picked up at the Parking Office on or after September 20, 1999. A photo ID will be required for pickup. The Parking Office is open from 7:00 A.M. - 3:30 P.M., Monday through Friday. For your convenience, the Parking Office will be open from 8:00 A.M. - 2:00 P.M. on Saturday, September 25th and October 2nd, 1999. If you will be attending Summer Quarter and require an annual parking permit, please purchase your permit via StudentLink or at the Parking Office, Bldg. 400, University Center, by July 1, 1999. PARKING PERMIT CANCELLATION An annual parking permit is valid through June 30, 2000, or until you return your permit, with a signed cancellation form, to the Parking Office. If you graduate, take a leave of absence, or withdraw from school for any reason and forget to cancel your permit, it will remain valid and you will be financially responsible for all parking fees accrued. Please return your permit to the Parking Office if you no longer need to park on campus. MOTORIST ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (858) 534-8108 Transportation and Parking Services continues to offer the Motorist Assistance Program (MAP) to our customers. Permit holders, stranded at campus and Medical Center locations, are eligible for assistance with vehicle battery jumps, low tire inflation, vehicle lockout assistance (manual locks only), and a lift to the nearest station to buy gas. Thank you for your attention to this notice. We look forward to assisting you with your transportation and parking needs throughout the year. Gregory M. Snee Director *-*- END
