  • It was incidental that we dropped by the UCSD as we were waiting for a member of the family to be off from work and w can have dinner in La Jolla. It is amazing to know that the University is doing a ...  more »
  • Let's look at the famous University of San Diego and took friends. It is a place where you can enjoy plenty of greenery with acres of campus, just to stroll.

  • Despite being in the top 10 of world universities and research, at a Visual level on campus is very "bare". The Geiselle library has its peculiar shape and is an attraction. but the rest are buildings where you are working or studying. Interesting cultural project in which artists present their works. Famous shooting star, a catch of the sky and stuck in a building, or the doors of the library opening in different ways, or the snake away. But for the rest on campus remains below other campuses visited here or anywhere in the world.

  • Walked around this campus on a nice sunny day when I called in sick. It felt great to be out of the office and get some fresh air. Beautiful campus with friendly students. I'm sure a great community to be part of and would be appealing if I were a prospective college student.
  • I am 9 grade student. I want a phd on computer science . I think this is the best place for a good and proper education. My future goal is to read in this college
  • Excellent Campus. Beautiful library and people are extremely friendly. Large variety of options to eat . Best pick would be the farmers market though. Delicious options on Farmers Day
  • The academics are world class. The students are smart, competitive, and yet usually pretty nice. The campus is huge so there is always a new place to find or people to meet. Professors are also great to be honest. The food is mediocre at best. Problem is that its UC Socially dead and the administration lies about everything. A lot of my GE classes were also completely useless. Parking is also horrendous.
  • I went on a field trip there for my AVID program, and my 6th grade AVID teacher went there as well. It honestly is an amazing school. The trees, everything. And the Gazelle library is amazing! I plan on going there when I'm heading to college.

Where to stay in San Diego

Offering accommodations at a wide range of price levels, San Diego is one of the easiest cities to stay in, regardless of whether you're simply passing through or hanging around for a long vacation. If you don't mind splurging, book your stay at a luxury downtown hotel or a lavish bayside resort. You can also rent a spacious private cottage within walking distance of the city's popular beaches. For a more affordable alternative, try a family-friendly hostel or quaint inn in a quiet residential area.
