Warren College Student Activities Center (SAC)


Announcement: SAC Closed Indefinitely after Friday, 3/13

After Friday, 3/13, SAC will be closed indefinitely. This decision is in accordance with campus guidance regarding COVID-19, as UC San Diego aims to increase social distance and minimize face-to-face interactions. 

Please note that SAC will remain operational during the weekdays from 12:30 - 4:30 PM for mail services. Please contact if you have any questions or concerns.


Located near the Voigt Drive shuttle stop, the Student Activities Center (SAC) is a hub of the Warren College residential complex. Available to all students who need a break from their busy college life, SAC functions as a primary site for community engagement, offering a large room for studying & org meetings; sports equipment, games, and DVDs; a well-equipped kitchen for those in Res Halls without one; a piano; various table-top games such as billiards, foosball, and ping pong; multiple gaming consoles, including a Nintendo Switch (with Super Smash Bros and Mario Kart); and a general ambience of collegiate socialization.

For more information on specific events, check out the calendar located here. We hope to see you here!

Who runs SAC?

SAC is operated by SAC Associates (SACAs), employed by the Warren Residence Life Office.

To speak to the SACAs directly, call 858.246.1234 during business hours. Otherwise, feel free to contact the Res Life Office at with any questions and/or concerns.

Available at SAC

A number of activities are available for students at SAC with the purchase of a $5 SAC Pass via Triton Cash or $7 via Eventbrite. (Residents will also get the opportunity to check out SAC for free during Welcome Week and week 1 of Fall Quarter).

In the Justice Room you will find: a pool table, ping pong table, shuffleboard, foosball, and a piano. You can also check out video games, board games, or sports equipment (basketball, football, dodgeball, etc.) from the front desk - or relax and watch your favorite shows on the big-screen TV in the Equality Room. We also have a kitchen, stocked with all the necessary equipment, available to all residents for no charge.

Additionally, SAC has an XBOX 360 and a Nintendo Switch that students can check out on an hourly basis with the purchase of a SAC Pass. 

Over the summer of 2019, we installed a top-of-the-line sound system throughout the space that is locally controlled via aux in three separate zones: front lobby, Justice Room, and Equality Room. Feel free to check it out and play your own music while you hang out. The sound system is also connected to the TV in the Equality Room - perfect for watch parties of any kind. Find the SACA at the front desk if you have any questions.

All rentals require a UCSD student ID. 

Community Engagement

Community Engagement hours are an opportunity for Warren residents to socialize and meet others in the Warren Residence Community. Community engagement's goal is to provide consistent programs for residents so that they can always find something to do if they need a break from studying. Community Engagement Hours are hosted in SAC, Wednesday through Monday 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM and Tuesdays 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM starting week 1 of each quarter. Community Engagement programs are completely free and open to all Warren residents. 

Community Engagement Schedule: 

Sunday – Coffee/Tea House Study Jam

Monday – Football Night (fall), TV shows or other sports events 

Tuesday – Study Jam

Wednesday – Crafting Night 

Thursday – Challenge the RA’s on Duty to Pool, Foosball, Ping Pong, or Shuffleboard 

Friday – Movie Night

Saturday – Board Games and Video Games

All events will be hosted in the SAC Equality Room with the exception of the Thursday night RA challenge that occurs in the SAC Justice Room. 

The kitchen will still be available during community engagement for residents who wish to cook.

If you are a Warren Student Organization looking to host a program during this time in this space, please contact Fiscal and Facilities Coordinator Zach Roberts at for a possible co-program opportunity. Otherwise, you can program before or after these events through the Room Reservation Page.


If you get locked out after the Residence Life Office has closed, call the RA on Duty (858.692.8635), come to the Student Activity Center, and the RA on duty will allow you access to your room. You will need to show your UCSD student ID. The first three times you get locked out and let back into your room there is no fee; after that, you will be assessed a fee of $10 per lockout.
