Pay Phone Locations

See the locations of UCSD pay phones.

UCSD pay phones are used less than in previous years, due to the widespread availability of cell phones. Consequently, some pay phones have been eliminated and others moved. Check this list for current locations.

In addition to pay phones, free courtesy phones, with access to campus police and campus extensions, are available for public safety.

Note: Phones marked with an asterisk* below are equipped with TTY or TDD devices for the hearing impaired.
