  • Searchable Google Address: 1261 Canyon Crest Dr.
  • Parking: The nearest parking lot is PK12, located down the hill from the office.

No appointment needed, but arrive early: Due to the high volume of customers and mailing deadlines, the SDSU Passport Office cannot guarantee the acceptance of all walk-in applicants, and they may have to unexpectedly lock doors earlier than 3 p.m. on any given day of the week. Arrive no later than 2 p.m. to allow enough time to process your application(s).

Visit the International Student Center website for information about what to bring to with you, passport fees, and more.
