Visitor Information

The city of San Diego considers University City to be roughly bordered by La Jolla to the west, state Route 52 to the south and Interstate 5 to the east. The planning area also includes portions of La Jolla Village, Torrey Pines Natural Reserve and the Torrey Pines Mesa research hub.

University City was subdivided as a master-planned community of 2,500 acres in 1960, according to the nonprofit University City Community Association. The neighborhood was intended as a residential haven for the employees and students of the University of California, San Diego.

Business Information

University City owes its origins to UCSD, considered one of the top-ranked public research universities in the nation. UCSD is one of San Diego’s largest employers -- with some 28,600 full- and part-time employees as of June 2013 -- and business incubators. UCSD faculty, staff and alumni have reportedly spun off more than 150 local companies, including San Diego’s first biotechnology company, Hybritech.

UCSD’s own Thornton Hospital is in University City, as is Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla.
