Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Locations

Wall-mounted AED and open AED unit

Locate automated external defibrillator (AED) units at UC San Diego.

AEDs are located in selected UC San Diego facilities, and in all UC San Diego Police vehicles. Most AED units in buildings are designated with the standard white, triangular AED sign (see adjacent image).  


Anyone expected to use an AED in a cardiac emergency should be trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and the appropriate use of AED devices. Contact if you would like AED training for your department.


EH&S manages and oversees many AEDs on campus. EH&S will maintain and check them as required. You can contact if you need any clarification on the current process or have questions.
