La Jolla Shores Hotel is quite literally right on the beach; the Sheraton and the Residence Inn hotels are more convenient to the freeway but far from the beach. The Estancia is the closest (15 min. walk) but also the most expensive. It has a shuttle that can take you to campus locations. All above hotels are 5-10 minutes away from our building (Pacific Hall) by car. The Sheraton and the Residence Inn hotels are a 25-minute walk to Pacific Hall (1 mile). If you ask for a room with no ocean view, the La Jolla Shores hotel usually gives a pretty good rate. Note you have to have an official invitation to get the UCSD rate.

Housing and Apartments:

Note due to fraudulent housing offers, it is advised that you DO NOT TRY TO FIND HOUSING IN THE SAN DIEGO/LA JOLLA AREA BASED ON AN INTERNET SEARCH. Two prior visitors to our lab tried to arrange their housing this way and they both lost a few thousand dollars to a fraudulent housing advertisement. The scams usually ask you for a security deposit by credit card number or wire transfer, then once they have your money they disappear.

On-campus housing. These are several options that UC San Diego provides for faculty and student visitors, both during the summer (in the UC San Diego dormitories) or year-round.
