Westfield UTC, formerly University Towne Centre (UTC), is an open-air shopping mall in the University City community of San Diego, California. It lies just east of La Jolla, near the University of California, San Diego campus. Owned by The Westfield Group, its anchor stores are Macy's, Nordstrom and Sears. A Robinsons-May closed in 2006.

Westfield America, Inc., a precursor to The Westfield Group acquired the shopping center in 1998, and renamed it "Westfield Shoppingtown UTC", dropping the "Shoppingtown" name in June 2005. Westfield bought both the closed Robinsons-May store and the freehold of the Macy's store in 2006. A redevelopment currently in the planning stages will encompass the demolition of both stores and the construction of a new Macy's at some point in the future.

Ice Town, one of the few public ice skating rinks in San Diego, is still up and running in the same building as the shopping center's food court. As of today the food court rink now houses Ice Skating, Hockey, Football, Baseball, Soccer, and many other sports.

Westfield UTC's 6 movie theatre was there from 1979 to 1999, and was situated where the Sports Chalet is today.
