Parking and Transportation Services


A permit is required for anyone using USC garages and lots. Metered and hourly parking are also available, with no permit required. With so many options to choose from, you can keep it simple or customize a parking plan that works for your schedule.

While parking options vary slightly for students and faculty/staff, the following rules will be enforced campus-wide:

  • faculty, staff and students are limited to one parking permit, with the exception of a motorcycle (MC) permit.
  • a permit is required for anyone using campus parking.
  • your permit is only valid for your use and only in the parking area indicated.
  • display your permit clearly in the driver's side of the rear window of your vehicle or as instructed on the back of the permit.

How to Get Your Permit

Visit the Parking Services office located in the Pendelton Street Garage or go to your online account to learn more about options available to you.
