About UC San Diego
San Diego is the University’s southernmost campus, yet is just two hours from Los Angeles. Travel 28 miles to the south and you can explore another culture: Mexico. The serene setting of the campus, with its giant eucalyptus trees and spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, strikes a perfect balance with the academically charged atmosphere. Since UCSD’s founding just four decades ago, it has become one of the top institutions in the nation for higher education and research. UCSD’s strong interdisciplinary ethos and tradition of innovation have made it an internationally respected destination for both scholars and students alike.
