Shipping & Mailing Information


For quicker freight and overnight deliveries, use an appropriate street address, not a mailing address.

UCSD/SIO Mailing Address:

Person's Name
UC San Diego
9500 Gilman Drive
La Jolla, CA.
92093 - ####

where #### is a four digit mail code that identifies the department (common ones are listed on the SOMTS Contacts page). You can find specific people at UCSD using the campus phone book. Campus mail services will usually look up the mail code if it's missing.


SIO Director's Office: Shipping Address

SIO is located "down the hill" from the main UCSD campus. If you're making an overnight delivery there's usually a delay of a day between the time the package gets to UCSD Receiving and is actually delivered to Scripps. You can give overnight delivery services (like Fedex) our actual street address to expedite the process
