North Torrey Pines LIving Learning Neighborhood

Reimagining How Our Students Live, Learn and Play

With the North Torrey Pines Living and Learning Neighborhood, UC San Diego is creating an unprecedented opportunity for our students, faculty, and the entire San Diego community.

We are building capacity to meet growing demand as we anticipate 40,000 students on campus in the years ahead. As we embrace our physical, intellectual, and cultural transformation, we are creating a vibrant, interconnected community that will form synergies, inspire breakthroughs, and make waves both here and around the world.

And once completed in 2020, this new nonconventional live, learn, and play community will include a new home for Sixth College, the Arts and Humanities Building, the Social Sciences Public Engagement Building, the Craft Center, and opportunities for recreation, dining, and more.

Welcome to the neighborhood.

UC San Diego Arts and Humanities Building The Arts and Humanities Building will be a physical hub where ideas and ideals will thrive — expanding, testing, and transforming the existing conventions of intellectual exchange among and across disciplines.
