USC Football Reminders-Sept 9-10

There are two football games at the Coliseum this weekend: the USC Trojans take on Stanford this Saturday at 5:30pm.  The Los Angeles Rams will face the Indianapolis Colts in their season opener this Sunday at 1:05pm.



  • NEW for 2017: In addition to the normal reminders below, there are a number of new restrictions this year.  PLEASE NOTE the following:
    • No tailgating or open alcohol containers of any kind are allowed in the new USC Village.
    • No vehicle parking along Trousdale, including Electric carts.  The departments of Public Safety, Fire Safety, and the LAFD will be enforcing this request due to many vehicles blocking fire lanes and creating other safety concerns.
    • The center of campus is closed to ALL vehicle traffic, including loading dock areas.
    • Electric carts should only be driven for official business purposes.  Many employees appear to be using departmental electric vehicles for personal use on game days, which is not permitted.
  • As always, we expect significant traffic and area congestion on football game days, from approximately noon-11:00pm on Saturday, and from approximately 10:00am-6:00pm on Sunday.  If you do not need to come to campus this weekend, we strongly encourage you to stay out of the area.
  • As always, USC permits are valid on game days in our system, but you may be required to park in a different location that your permit indicates if your location is full when you arrive.
  • USC Transportation will be coordinating with LADOT, LAPD, Metro, and many other agencies to close area streets after USC & NFL games to facilitate faster egress from the Coliseum.  The closures will go into place at the end of the third quarter and extend until approximately one hour after the game ends.
  • Campus Cruisers service will start later than normal on Saturday due to the game, at 10:00pm (~4.5 hours after kickoff).  Service will start at the normal time on Sunday (6:00pm).
  • The weekend Intercampus Shuttle service begins this Sunday, Sept. 10th; we do expect traffic delays due to the Rams game and thank you in advance for your patience.  Complete information on this route can be found on our website by clicking here.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation; please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
