Driving Directions, Parking and Check-In

Due to the Colachis Plaza Construction Project on the west side of campus, Torero Visit Day Registration and Check-In has been moved to the Jenny Craig Pavilion, located on the east side of campus. The instructions below will provide you with the most efficient way to get to the Jenny Craig Pavilion (JCP) and the Mission Parking Structure, which is the closest parking garage to the JCP. Please note that there are two entrances to our campus, and you will need to use the Main (East) Entrance to access the Mission Parking Structure. Please follow the driving directions below and use the Torero Visit Day Parking Map to help you navigate once you enter campus via the Main (East) Entrance.

Parking In the Mission Parking Structure

Parking in the Mission Parking Structure is complimentary on the weekends, so you will not need to obtain a parking permit. That said, please note that you can only park in white-lined spaces on levels 3-5 of the Mission Parking Structure. Parking outside of these assigned areas will result in a citation. The JCP is a short walk from the Mission Structure, or you may take one of the USD Shuttles. After you park, there will be students and staff members to direct you accordingly.
