Campus Tours

The founders of the University of California, San Diego had one criterion for the campus: it must be distinctive.

UC San Diego's main campus is located near the Pacific Ocean on approximately 1,200 acres of coastal woodland in La Jolla, California. The campus sits on the ancestral homelands of the Kumeyaay Nation and was founded in 1960 after the establishment of the Scripps Institute of Oceanography. Today, the layout of the main campus centers on Geisel Library, which is roughly surrounded by the seven residential colleges of Revelle, Muir, Marshall, Warren, Roosevelt, Sixth, Seventh, and the School of Medicine. 

Most Cognitive Science labs, as well as faculty, grad, and administrative offices are located in the Cognitive Science Building (CSB) and Social Science Research Building (SSRB)You can also find our faculty and students at the new Design and Innovation Building (DIB) and at the Applied Physics and Mathematics (APM) building.
