The Hub of Innovation


University Town Center

Home to many of the world's most prominent trailblazers in the biotech, high-tech and telecom sectors, the University Town Center area is a hive of inspired innovators and industry-leading research facilities, and a vibrant community of ideas in America's Brightest City. It offers close proximity to the Salk Institute for Biological Studies (pictured above), UCSD, Scripps Research and the Birch Aquarium — and as the gateway to the beautiful North County coastline, UTC also allows quick access to the villages of La Jolla and Del Mar.

University Town Center's business-friendly climate is perfect for a productive meeting, while hotels offer modern comfort and state-of-the-art convention settings. Attendees can embark on a team-building hike through the beautiful Torrey Pines State Reserve, tee off with clients at the legendary Torrey Pines Golf Course, or relax with colleagues while shopping or dining at UTC's flagship outdoor promenade. The bottom line? UTC is a hub of great experiences and ideas.

With more than 2,156 hotel rooms in this region, there are plenty of options for guests to stay when visiting. Hotels with meeting space include the Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine, San Diego Marriott La Jolla, Sheraton La Jolla Hotel, and Embassy Suites. And the location is close to other San Diego regions and attractions: UTC is situated in the "Golden Triangle" between the three major thoroughfares of I-5, I-805 and SR-52. It's a quick drive to North County beaches, as well as to La Jolla, Mission Bay and beaches, Mission Valley and downtown. What's more, the UCSD Blue Line Extension of the San Diego Trolley now takes you all the way from central San Diego straight to UTC and environs.
