EV Charging on Campus

Make use of UC San Diego’s network of electric vehicle charging stations, considered one of the largest, most diverse range of electric vehicle charging stations at any university in the world. The campus currently has 60 charging stations and UC San Diego has entered into an agreement to increase the number of stations to over 150 in the next 12-18 months.

Participation in EV Study

Anyone who leases or purchases one of these vehicles will be invited to participate in an electric vehicle user study being conducted by UC San Diego and its research partners. Study participants will share information on their electric vehicle driving and charging experiences. This is an opt-in study and there is no obligation to participate.
