Directions and Parking Options for UC Irvine School of Education

The school mailing address is 3200 Education Bldg., Irvine, CA. 92697-5500. It is a campus address, not a street address. Directions are available on Google Maps.

To find the Education building on  the Campus Map (pdf), look for building number 3 in grid D7. You can also find the building at the Campus Maps web site using the Interactive Campus Map (Google) and searching "Education."

Parking is described below. Once you have arrived at the Education building, find the stairs between the Education building (north wing) and Law building (south wing). If you look at the picture on the top of this page, you can see the stair structure with the pyramid top between the two buildings. The Education building is on the left side of the picture; the Law building is on the right.

Once at the stairs:

  • For visiting the Dean, Associate Dean, or administrative offices: take the elevator or walk to the third floor of the north wing (Campus Drive side), then walk to the end of the hallway to Rm. 3200. The receptionist (949 824-8073) can guide you from there.
  • For visiting Student Affairs or dropping off application items: go to the second floor entry area to Suite 2000. 
  • For visiting faculty: consult the website for specific office listing on the second or third floors.

1. Park in the Social Science Parking Structure (SSPS)

SSPS is located approximately 100 meters west of the School of Education. It may be accessed from Stanford Avenue, Campus Drive, or Pereira Drive. If a parking pass has been reserved for you there, the SSPS attendant in the booth at the Stanford (west) entrance will have your permit. If there is no SSPS attendant, your permit will be with the attendant at the Student Center Parking Structure (PS4) at the corner of Pereira Drive and West Peltason Drive. You can also purchase a daily parking permit from an attendant or from a parking dispenser. Permit information is available at:

2. Drop someone off

Visitors to the School of Education can be dropped off at two convenient locations. One drop-off point is by the parking kiosk on East Peltason Dr., by the stairs to the Education building. The other location is in the parking lot off Pereira Drive. Turn into the parking lot, turn immediately right and drop off as close to the north wing of the building as you can get.
