The Basement

The Basement’s  student-centric mission is to stimulate, encourage and serve the entrepreneurial spirit of UC San Diego students by providing a co-work and incubation space.

As a shared campus-wide enterprise managed by Alumni and Community Engagement, The Basement is part of a collective comprised of campus partners, alumni leaders, Alumni and Community Engagement and Career and Professional Development staff.

In alignment with Chancellor Khosla’s emphasis on entrepreneurship, and with the generosity and vision of its supporters, this site was transformed into the nexus of innovation at UC San Diego – bringing together students and alumni, ideas and inspiration, earnest ambition, and real-world experience.

The Basement is a space where student entrepreneurs can gather and be nurtured, and with alumni support and visionary leadership, they can grow companies andHushtechnologyrotator social innovation ventures that become the fabric of our community, creating jobs and inspiring a culture of ingenuity and impact.

The Basement promises opportunity for all university students – regardless of college or department affiliation. The space will provide students with mentors, guidance, and funding to bring innovative ideas to life and further stimulate, encourage, and serve the entrepreneurial spirit of UC San Diego students.
