Mission Hall Location

TICR Program Classes are held on the 1st and 2nd Floors of Mission Hall, located at the intersection of 4th Street and 16th Street on the UCSF Mission Bay Campus.  Mission Hall is a secure building meaning that all doors (other than those on 4th Street) require a UCSF ID badge with Mission Hall clearance to access.  The doors on 4th Street are open to the public, but all visitors are required to check in at the adjacent Reception Desk and/or show their UCSF ID badge to the guards.

Map of Mission Hall at UCSF Mission Bay Campus


There are a number of transit options for getting to the UCSF Mission Bay campus.  The UCSF shuttle system serves all primary UCSF campuses.  Service is FREE to UCSF faculty, staff, students, patients, and visitors.


UCSF employees who already have a UCSF parking permit may park at Mission Bay garages and the surface lot on 4th Street adjacent to Mission Hall (though this is typically full quite early).  Public parking is also available at these lots on the Mission Bay campus:

  • 1630 Third Street Garage
    Located just north of 16th Street (very close to Mission Hall)
  • 1625 Owens Street Garage
    Located next to the Mission Bay Community Center

In addition there is public parking available at Lot E, on the corner of 3rd Street and 16th Street.  There is plentiful ground-level parking which is less expensive than the Mission Bay garages if you are parking for more than a couple of hours.

Biking to Mission Bay

We applaud you for riding your bike!  There's a large indoor bike cage in the 3rd Street garage (closest to Mission Hall).  To park your bike there, you will need to physically go to the "Parking and Transportation Office" located in the Community Center garage (entrance on Owens Street) to register your bike.  Access to bike parking will then be added to your UCSF ID badge.

Places to Work and Study

There are various locations on the first floor of Mission Hall for students to work or study, including The Hub (a place for students who wish to work together) and The Hideout (a quiet space for individual study similar to library carrels).

TICR Program students are also welcome to work in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics on the 2nd Floor of Mission Hall.  TICR Program scholars may use one of several workstations designated as “TICR” and any unoccupied hotel spaces, available on a first come, first served basis, as well as numerous unreserved huddle and focus rooms located throughout the 2nd floor.  If you have trouble accessing the security door on the 2nd Floor using your UCSF ID, please let Olivia De Leon know and she will get you added to the access list.

Student Mailboxes

We have provided TICR Program students with a personal mailbox located on the 2nd Floor –Area 2K, cubicle #2653.  This is also where you will find the workstations of Olivia De Leon and Clair Dunne.  We will put your graded homeworks and exams in these boxes, so please get in the habit of checking these periodically.

Wellness/Lactation Rooms

There are 3 wellness/lactation rooms in Mission Hall located on the 3rd, 5th, and 7th floors (can we give the room numbers).  If you would like access to these rooms, please let Olivia De Leon know and she will request access be added to your UCSF ID badge.

Kitchen Areas

There is a large open kitchen area as you enter the security door on the 2nd Floor.  TICR Program students are welcome to use the kitchen.  You are welcome to store your lunch in one of the 3 refrigerators, eat at one of the several tables, and to help yourself to coffee and tea. 

Internet Access

The “UCSF guest” network is open to the public.  UCSF staff, trainees, and faculty who seek more secure access should use the “UCSF wpa” network.


There is a printer in The Hub on the 1st floor of Mission Hall.  This printer is operated by the UCSF library. Printing is a fee-based service (14 cents a printed page for black and white).  Read the Instructions for using the printer and adding money to your account.

Places to Eat

There are several places to eat at Mission Bay, most located on the plaza between 3rd and 4th Street.  A café is coming to Mission Hall in late 2015.  There is a hospital cafeteria in the new Hospital (opening February 2015).
