USC Visitor Registration Website

USC strives to maintain a safe community. Access to the UPC campus is restricted to students, faculty, staff, registered guests, and people who have a verifiable business interest on campus. The USC Village also is restricted from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m. each night. Only select entrances are open overnight, and security personnel are stationed at each one.   

USC community are simply asked to show their USC identification.  Guests must be pre-registered by a USC student, faculty or staff member. Two new changes have been added to enhance the entry process:

  • The current system allows you to register guests for an extended number of days or the entire semester. Beginning April 26th, guest registration must be completed daily for each guest planning to visit the University Park Campus or the Village during closure hours.
  • Pre-registered guests will receive an email with a link to a QR code. The guest must present the QR code and a valid photo ID at any of the open UPC or Village entry gates to enter campus. 

Visitor registration is available on this site. Once a USC student, staff or faculty registers a guest, the information is immediately available in the registration system.


Pedestrians wishing to enter campus must be registered as a guest and have a government issued identification card and the QR code.


Cars with a USC parking permit may be admitted to campus parking structures. Registered guests are allowed entry to parking structures after presenting the QR code and their identification card to entrance attendants. A pass will be issued for registered guests; payment is required.

Unregistered visitors driving vehicles will not be allowed entry unless they have a verifiable business purpose; examples include commercial food delivery, commercial transportation, delivery vehicles or service calls. Drivers will be asked for identification and for their destination.


When a university department invites a large number of off-campus guests, arrangements must be made in advance with the USC department that is hosting the event. Guest passes will be created and sent to the guests to be used for access. Student-organized events must be pre-approved by USC Student Life; guest arrangements also need to be made through USC Student Life.


USC Transportation will issue special parking passes to regular vendors. For more information, please visit USC Transportation or call (213) 740-3575.
