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

Sample:

UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, SAN DIEGO
JOHN E DOE, SOCIOLOGY DEPT
9500 GILMAN DR. # 0533
LA JOLLA CA  92093-0533

Mail code guide

  • 0001 – 0799 = Campus
  • 0800 – 0899 = Hillcrest
  • 0900 – 0999 = Campus
  • 7000 – 7999 = Thornton
  • 9000 – 9999 = Campus

Note: The mail code is also the zip+4 code.

Alternate street addresses

Some situations may call for a different campus street address than 9500 Gilman Drive. The following are approved campus street addresses. They must still be used with the proper department and Mail Code.

  • 3855 Health Sciences Dr.
  • 2910 La Jolla Village Dr.
  • 3100 Gilman Dr.
  • 10280 N. Torrey Pines Rd.
  • 10300 N. Torrey Pines Rd.
  • 8622 Discovery Way
  • 9415 Campus Point Dr.

Note: Avoid using a campus address to receive personal mail. Mail Services retains the right to return personal mail that is continually received for faculty or staff.
