Wheelchair-Accessible Vehicle Entrance

ADA Parking Reservations

Guests who require ADA parking are encouraged to pre-register for a parking space through our ADA Parking Reservation Link. Guests must present a valid ADA placard or license plate to the gate attendant for verification.

Wheelchair Loans

There is a limited number of wheelchairs available for checkout, free of charge, on the Taper Hall Lawn off Trousdale Parkway. Checkout begins at 8:00 a.m., and all wheelchairs must be returned by 9:00 p.m. on Friday, May 10th. Please keep this time in mind if you are planning on attending the evening Viterbi USC School of Engineering ceremony at the Galen Center. 

If you require disability services for a School Ceremony, please contact the school coordinator for your student’s ceremony to make the appropriate arrangements. Contact information can be found on the individual school’s page.

For The Hearing Impaired

Closed captioning will be provided on the screens located in Alumni Park for the Main Commencement Ceremony. Additionally, closed captioning can be accessed through the live stream, with a link becoming available on usc.edu on the morning of the event.

On-Campus Shuttles

For guests with limited mobility, a shuttle service circulates among selected tram stops on campus. Due to heavy pedestrian traffic during Commencement, trams will make an untimed, repeated round of all stops, making specific timings uncertain. Consider bringing or borrowing a wheelchair for those who may face difficulty walking.
