Playhouse parking has moved due to construction for the new Theatre District Living and Learning Neighborhood. At the completion of the project, ticket-holders will enjoy secure, underground parking directly across from the theatres.
Parking and Shuttle
Parking is FREE for La Jolla Playhouse patrons in the South Parking Structure (formerly known as Osler Parking) when a valid UCSD parking pass is displayed.
We recommend taking the shuttle for your maximum comfort. If you choose to walk to the theatre instead, it is 0.5 mile/approx 10 min walk up Theatre District Drive with an uphill ascent.

Accessible Parking and Shuttle
Accessible parking is free with a Disabled Person (DP) placard or license plates in the South Parking Structure. We recommend entering the parking structure on Gilman Drive, and parking on Level 4 near the North Lobby Pedestrian walkway elevators/stairs for easiest access to the shuttle. The parking attendant at the entrance can provide directions as needed, and there is signage that points you towards the shuttle. Please see detailed parking info above. Google Map to this entrance

Drop Off Location for Access, Uber, Lyft, Taxi
There is an accessible drop off location at the front of the theatre district on Revelle College Drive. This is where ride-share services can drop off guests. Google Map for this drop off location
Golf Cart Service
Patrons with access needs can pre-request golf cart service from the drop-off location to the theatre doors. Request golf cart service in advance by calling (858) 550-1010, or connect with a greeter when you arrive if you would like this service.
If you prefer to walk, there is a paved walking path from the parking structure up Theatre District Drive to the Playhouse. The walk is 0.5 miles, with an uphill ascent. Follow the signs up Theatre District Drive to Weiss Lane and turn left. Pass the Wagner Dance Building and you’ll see the theatre complex in front of you. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
Shuttles make multiple runs after every performance to take patrons back to the South Parking Structure. Benches and lighting have been installed at the shuttle stop for your convenience. If you would like golf cart service from the theatre to the shuttle stop, please talk to Front of House staff and they will be happy to assist.
Patrons can also walk back to the South Parking Structure down Theatre District Drive.
Patrons and staff are welcome to use UCSD Community Service Officers (CSOs) for a safety escort to their cars by calling (858) 534-WALK (9255). If you have questions about security you can contact UCSD Police at (858) 534-HELP (4357).
CSOs offer this service from sunset to 1am every day of the year. After 1am, this service may be handled by other police department personnel.
