Connecting. Innovating. Experiencing. A building unlike any other.

Our Vision

Connection

UC San Diego Park & Market brings people together who might not otherwise have crossed paths. These connections are multidisciplinary, boundary spanning, connecting art and science, culture and technology, civic engagement and lifelong learning, and much more. Park & Market provides new ways of seeing and doing things, and at the core, sustainable solutions to real-world problems such as public health, housing insecurity, and economic inequality.

Catalyst

UC San Diego Park & Market uplifts and inspires people, art, ideas, and innovation in our region and beyond. The building is a catalyst to advance enterprise, science, civility, minority business, and more, all while sharing with the San Diego and Baja region cultural experiences through art, music, theatre, film, and food.

Commitment

UC San Diego Park & Market is a 21st century model of education, and a clear, tangible reflection of the university’s commitment to a genuinely inclusive economy and workforce allowing for sustainable growth in the region. The building’s partners and programming center on issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion, cultivating a community that encourages respectful, open dialogue, and challenges itself to take bold actions.

Heart of Downtown San Diego

Located in downtown San Diego, Park & Market is an award-winning, 4-story, 66,750-square foot transit-oriented, mixed-use building providing access to the education and resources of a global research university through collaborations with the academic, community, and business partners active in our local and cross-border regions.

Park & Market Partners

UC San Diego is making a commitment to the intellectual, cultural, and economic growth of the region and downtown San Diego and beyond. The state-of-the art building will be a hub for a number of organizations from the San Diego community, as well as the UC San Diego campus. This includes community-anchored organizations.

Through their connection with UC San Diego, our partners will be better prepared to participate in our evolving binational economy and have access to a combination of resources previously unavailable in one place – experts, educators, community leaders, entrepreneurs, artists, activities, futurists, and visionaries.
