Inspiring
May 2021
You can enjoy sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean from this green campus that has Tecote Canyon running along one side. Parking is ample and free on Sundays when you can stroll through the campus and/or attend Catholic mass at Immaculata parish. Although cu6rently major construction is going on, when the fall term begins many activities, such as lectures, book readings, plays, and musical performances, happen that are open to the general public.

Ocean Views, Nature & Events
Jan 2020
Set on a hill USD has stunning views of the Pacific Ocean from it's green campus that was designed to uplift through beauty. As Tecote Canyon runs along a long edge you are near the city (campus shuttle bus service from Old Town trolley station), but still above the fray of urban life. Visitors can enjoy this beautiful campus, enjoy a meal with fresh herbs/spices grown next to the café, or participate in many activities, such as lectures, book readings, plays, musical performances, and/or Sunday mass.

Scenic Views

A top notch private campus plus USD’s location on top of a hill would make this a great campus to attend.

I found the students here to be very friendly and helpful as I wandered around taking photos and gathering info about college life for my daughter. I was directed to Manchester Hall to get more info about the campus and admissions. The student filled me in on a lot of good details for the food (lots of variety and tasty), internships, social opportunities, etc.

The campus is laid out in a large rectangle with the central part car free so it was nicely landscaped and easy to walk around. The buildings were a Spanish Renaissance style with lots of areas to hang out and study or socialize. Views of San Diego and towards the Pacific Ocean could be had at many different vantage points.

The Immaculata church is in the center of campus and is quite large and beautiful. Inside many naves lined each side of the church and there were many pews so no problem for worshippers to find a seat.

Visitor parking was at either end of the campus. It was a pay by license plate with half hour intervals, 75 cents per.

Worth a visit if in the area.

The most wonderful University
Sep 2019
We brought our daughter here from the East coast, and have been thrilled with her decision to attend this school. Every aspect of the school exceeds expectations! The academics are highly rated, the teachers are skilled and accessible. The students are highly educated and competitive. The campus is spectacular!

San Diego is a postcard perfect area for college. The school overlooks Mission Bay and is minutes from the beach.

We could not be happier with the school.

Awesome Views & Active Learning
May 2019 • Couples
USD is a campus with amazing sweeping views of the city and the ocean and deliberate landscaping to elicit truth and beauty. They have a rich schedule of book talks, lectures, and classes between semesters for adult learners. In addition they have a collaboration with the Globe Theater and present at least one student directed performance per year as well as an active music program. Check out USD for a learning experience.

What a campus
Feb 2019 • Friends
We were here for a conference, and what a campus. Besides the expected well-appointed lecture hall, the building had antique furniture ranged around the halls. Fine campus.

College on a Hill
Nov 2018 • Solo
As USD sits on a hill, it has a sweeping view of the ocean and a green campus; even the cafe adjacent to the Kroc Center grows its own herbs There's always a lot of events -- sports, public talks, concerts -- to enjoy as a shuttle runs from the large metered lot near the entrance to various spots on campus.

Visually Stunning
Nov 2017 • Family
The University of San Diego has one of the most beautiful campuses in the United States. Built in the style of the Spanish Renaissance, varied fountains dot the palm tree-filled campu, which has well-manicured grass and artificial lighting at just the right places. Even the layout of the buildings is great, as many courtyards are formed around a central walkway. Additionally, since all this sits on a hilltop, views of the San Diego are available in certain locations around campus. Many of the buikdings are recently constructed. The University of San Diego is a worthy cultural visit.

Stimulating inside and out
Jan 2018 • Couples
Both inside and out the USD campus can feed your senses with stunning vistas and your mind with stimulating lectures, such as the San Diego Economic Roundtable that was held on Jan. 18 at the IPJ auditorium. IPJ also has lectures as does the Bridges Academy. Or you can catch a concert or play at Shiley Theatre. Check out their website for a schedule of campus events. There's is a West Parking Lot with meters and a shuttle bus that goes up to the main part of the campus.
