UCSD address for incoming mail
To help ensure that incoming mail is addressed properly, always use a properly formatted address with the ZIP + 4-digit Mail Code on departmental letterhead, envelopes, and correspondence. Incoming mail without the proper address could be delayed or returned.
Use this format for UCSD addresses:
- University of California, San Diego
- Name and department
- 9500 Gilman Dr. or alternate street address (see below), plus # Mail Code
- La Jolla, CA 92093 - Mail Code
UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, SAN DIEGO
JOHN E DOE, SOCIOLOGY DEPT
9500 GILMAN DR. # 0533
LA JOLLA CA 92093-0533
