ASSISTANCE GETTING AROUND THE UPC CAMPUS
If you need assistance navigating the UPC campus, the DART program may be able to help; please refer to the DART page of our website for complete details regarding that program and the services available.
Information about the USC Lyft program is available on this page of our website; Lyft offers a program in Los Angeles called WAV Rides that can accommodate non-collapsible and motorized wheelchairs.
USC is a private institution, and USC-owned facilities are private property. USC follows the ADA-recommended percentage of handicap accessible parking spaces. Similar to LA Live, Disneyland, or any other private parking entities, most of our facilities, including parking structures, require a parking permit or daily pass from USC in addition to a state-issued handicap placard.
For more information regarding the purchase of parking permits, please visit our Permits page; for more information regarding daily passes and hourly parking options, please visit our daily and hourly parking information page. NOTE: Parking in Pay-by-Plate areas (in USC-owned parking lots, parking structures, or on surface streets within the UPC campus) is NOT allowed at any time without paying for time. The ADA rules/exceptions that allow parking at city-owned street parking meters without paying does not apply to these Pay-by-Plate areas.
ADA spaces located in off-campus USC Housing complexes (Troy Hall, Century Apartments, etc.) are reserved for use by residents of that specific USC Housing complex. Any vehicles parked in a USC Housing facility without a specific permit for that facility (using an ADA space or not) will be issued a citation for parking in an incorrect area.
If you suspect fraud or misuse of a state-issued ADA placard, please contact the USC Department of Public Safety at their non-emergency number for investigation: 213-740-6000.
