In Case You Missed It

Parking on Campus

UC San Diego has transitioned to virtual parking permits to make the commuting experience simpler and more sustainable. Students, faculty and staff can purchase virtual permits that are linked to their vehicle’s license plate number. 

Parking for Everyday Drivers

Biweekly or monthly payroll deductions are still an option. Staff with limited term appointments may also be interested in the “consecutive days permit” (covering 30 to 365 days of parking) that replaced monthly, quarterly and annual permits. 
Occasional Parking Options
For those coming to campus sporadically, virtual parking permits for A, B, S, and D spots can be purchased conveniently through the ParkMobile app. Even those who work on-site full-time can benefit by not paying for parking on holidays, vacation and sick days. All you need is your specific code, based on your parking eligibility. 
The most common codes include:
  • A Permits: 47200
  • B Permits: 47300
  • B-SIO Permits: 47320
  • S Permits: 47400
  • D Permits: 4762
View the full list of permit codes on the flexible parking program webpage.
Faculty and staff can also save when they purchase 10-day bundles of prepaid, pretax parking through the Transportation Services’ parking portal. Permits are delivered as a 10-use ParkMobile promotion code.
Free Transit Trial for Faculty and Staff
Faculty and staff can ride free this fall when they enroll in the FaSt Pass Trial Program. Enroll by Sept. 25 to activate your October transit pass. 
Triton Commuter Club                               
When you log the days that you work remotely or don’t drive alone in the Triton Commuter Club, you can save even more by earning parking discounts, incentive drawing entries, and more!

Submit Your Vaccination Documentation

If you haven’t already done so, please submit your vaccination documentation as soon as possible. All students, staff and faculty must be vaccinated for COVID-19, or have an approved exemption or deferral, per University of California mandate. Vaccinations are free and available at UC San Diego.

Your Questions Answered

Question: Is my supervisor required to give me a certain amount of calendar-day notice before requiring my in-person attendance at a meeting or event?
Answer: When scheduling in-person employee meetings and events, supervisors should consider employees’ work arrangements. Whenever possible, supervisors should provide employees with three business days’ notice if requesting that they come to campus on a day that they’re regularly scheduled to work remotely.
Question: When I wear a mask while teaching, will students be able to hear and understand me?
Answer: Yes. Most classrooms have built in means for voice amplification. Please see the following video of a test conducted in a classroom using different masks. For instructors teaching in campus lecture halls who do not feel comfortable reusing a lapel mic, you may request your own dedicated lapel mic to use throughout the quarter. Find more classroom technology details.
Question: What is the CA Exposure Notify App and who can use it?
Answer: CA COVID Notify, published by the State of California, uses the Exposure Notifications System from Google and Apple to alert you when you’ve been exposed to COVID-19. It will quickly notify you if you’ve likely been exposed, allowing you to seek medical attention and reduce risk for your loved ones. Learn about the program and instructions on how to download the app.
