New names for UPC entrances and parking structures

In anticipation of the opening of USC Village nears and to aid Trojan Family and guest navigation of our campus, USC with the approval of senior leadership has renamed the UPC entrances and parking structures, as below. Entrances are now identified by their cross streets (with the exception of the Jefferson Entrance, formerly Entrance 9, which does not have a cross street). Parking structures are now identified by adjacent streets or staffed entry points.

Between May 15-July 10, all entrance and parking structure signs are being updated. Simultaneously, Transportation is updating online and printed campus maps.

Effective immediately, start using the updated names and maps in all communications.
