While Scripps would like to be able to host all international delegations that have an interest in visiting our institution, we are not always able to accommodate requests due to staffing limitations. Priority will be given to requests from parties that meet at least one of the following campus priorities:
1. Universities or institutions with which Scripps/UC San Diego has developed significant ties, such as an MOU, collaboration agreement, or grant award for joint research endeavors;
2. Peer universities or institutions with which Scripps/UC San Diego shares significant academic and research strengths. To learn more about our academic and research strengths, please visit scripps.ucsd.edu
All other requests will be evaluated based on currently available resources.
Prospective international visitors who are interested in meeting with Scripps faculty and staff are required to submit this form and a professional biography or CV for each visitor at least 14 days prior to the proposed visit date. Please complete this form electronically, and email any attachments to: firstname.lastname@example.org
. Our office will consult with administrative, academic and research leadership as appropriate to determine whether Scripps is able to support the requested visit, and will respond to your request within five (5) business days.
Please submit the names of all proposed visitors. Additional meetings requested and/or visitors added less than 14 days before the proposed visit are unlikely to be accommodated.
Hotel, Transportation and General Information
We regret that we are not able to assist with hotel or transportation arrangements. The Visitor Guide to UC San Diego (http://friends.ucsd.edu/
) provides lodging, transportation and other information for visitors to our campus. Local hotels, including Hotel La Jolla, Jolla Shores Hotel, Estancia La Jolla, Sheraton La Jolla and the Residence Inn by Marriott offer UC San Diego rates. Please ask for the UC San Diego rate at the time you make your reservations. Note that the Hotel La Jolla and the La Jolla Shores Hotel are within walking distance to the Scripps La Jolla campus (.8 miles). Public transportation in San Diego is limited, and we recommend that travelers do not plan to rely on public transportation during their visit.
Please consult the UC San Diego Short-Term International Visit Requests: Information for Prospective Visitors website at: http://ia.ucsd.edu/visitors
for further guidance on local transportation, accommodations, and other information.
