Directions and Parking

Driving Directions to SDSU and Parking Structure 6
From Interstate 8, exit at College Avenue and go south. San Diego State University will be on your right. Continue on College Avenue South through the Canyon Crest Drive/Alvarado Road stop light. Cross under two pedestrian bridges and turn left at your first opportunity. Parking Structure 6 will be directly in front of you. You may park on any level within PS6. Purchase a parking permit for $1/hour at the yellow machines located at the entrances/exits of PS6, and remember to leave it on your dashboard. (How many hours to purchase? If you're taking a campus tour, presentation and housing tour, plan to spend at least four hours at SDSU.)

Walking Directions from Parking Structure 6
Your tour departs from the Prospective Student Center, a glass cube located in the Student Services West Building directly beneath the clock tower. Once you park in PS6 exit the parking structure and walk northwest across Parking Lot F toward the smaller pedestrian bridge crossing College Avenue (NOT the large, arched bridge). After crossing the bridge continue up the stairs into the courtyard of the Student Services Building. Continue all the way through the Student Services Building and the glass-enclosed Prospective Student Center will be directly in front of you.
