Parking and Shuttle
During UC San Diego construction, parking is FREE for Playhouse patrons in the South Parking Structure (formerly known as Osler Parking Structure). Please plan to arrive early with time to park and get the shuttle.

  • We recommend entering the parking structure on Gilman Drive, Level 3. Google Map to this entrance
  • A parking attendant at the entrance will give you a free parking pass for your dashboard.
  • Useful tip: park on Level 4 near the North Lobby Pedestrian walkway elevators/stairs for easiest access to the shuttle. The parking attendant can provide directions as needed, and there is signage that points you towards the shuttle.
  • An accessible complimentary shuttle bus takes patrons to and from the parking structure pre- and post-show. It is a comfortable 5 min ride. Shuttles arrive every 7-10 min.
  • There may be a short wait for the shuttle. We recommend allowing 20-30 min prior to your performance time for parking and the shuttle.

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.

We strongly recommend you only purchase tickets from an authorized ticket seller. You can contact our Patron Services team to confirm if a ticket seller is authorized.
