Athlete Drop Off:

You are requested to have your student-athletes dropped off at either at the North Point Kiosk (top of the stadium level) leading athletes south on Ridge Walk to the Triton Soccer Stadium.  



VISITOR PARKING TIPS: 

The UCSD campus is currently undergoing quite a bit of construction that has required several parking lot closures.  It is very probable that parking will be limited, especially during times when academic classes are in session. 

It is suggested that you try to get here early in order to find parking in the Hopkins parking structure.  *NOTE:  If visitors are accompanying children or fans who may have trouble walking the long distance from the parking structure to the field, we suggest these individuals be dropped off at the North Point Drive visitor kiosk (northwest of the field and top of the stadium level). While traveling south on John J Hopkins Drive (as indicated on the map above).  We suggest that visitors bypass this first entrance and go RIGHT on Voigt Drive, bringing them to the top entrance along the south side of the structure.   From anywhere in the Hopkins parking structure, guests will be able to find the parking pay stations (near the entrances and elevators).  It is recommended that your visitors purchase a Visitor Permit. These V permits are available at pay stations in the parking structures (usually near each entrance and the elevators) or at the visitor information kiosk at the North Point Drive entrance (see below for specific information about the North Point Drive visitor kiosk). V permits cost $1/45 minutes, up to $8 for a full day. You can park in any V, B or S spot for the amount of time you have purchased.

Directions to the RIMAC Field from inside the parking structure are listed below:

  • Take the elevator or stairs to the top floor (7th) of the parking structure (to access RIMAC Arena and RIMAC Field)
  • Upon exiting the elevator, use the bridge to direct you towards Ridge Walk (as indicated on the map above), and go RIGHT
  • This will bring you to RIMAC (on the right hand side)
  • Continue on Ridge Walk about 200 yards past the RIMAC Annex Softball Stadium (currently under construction)
  • From this point on Ridge Walk, visitors will see the Triton Soccer Stadium seating on the right hand side

Additional Parking Information:  Permits are required between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m. Monday through Friday.  In addition to the visitor permits available in the Hopkins Parking Structure, the following options are available:

  • Park in a metered parking spot ($1/ 45 min).
  • Purchase a One-Day permit or One-Night permit. These permits are available at the visitor information kiosk at the North Point Drive entrance. One-Day permits are $8 and One-Night permits are $3. With a One-Day permit, you can park in any V, B or S spot all day, and in A or metered spots after 4:30 p.m. With a One-Night permit, you can park in any V, B, S or A spot after 4:30 p.m.

Weekends or overnight:  Parking is free on the main UCSD campus on Saturdays and Sundays, and between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. in any A, B, S, or metered spaces.   Parking is not allowed in spaces marked as follows, including on weekends:
