Student Services Center

The University Centers logo represents two unique student union areas-the Price Center and the Student Center-that fulfill the needs of the campus community.

 

 

 

The Price Center was developed in the 1980s when enrollment at UC San Diego was only 15,000 students. Since then, student enrollment has increased to 33,735 and faculty and staff numbers have increased to 30,000. The expanded Price Center, is now nearly double in space and amenities, and is meeting the needs of a growing campus. It is located just north of the main Student Services Center, where students come to register and seek financial aid. It also borders the campus library, and the new Town Center outdoor space, where special events are held under beautiful coastal La Jolla skies.

Price Center East

Price Center East is anchored by the Atrium Food Court and is a popular meeting place on campus for students, faculty, staff and visitors. The busy facility includes multiple lounge and study spaces, food and non-food retail, meeting and event space, key campus departments, and student organization offices.
