There are a limited number of public parking spaces in Exposition Park. For USC games and most events, parking is by permit only; there are no cash lots in Exposition Park.  For more available spaces check out USC Campus Parking.

For all other events, public parking sells out quickly and rates may vary per event. Entrances to Exposition Park are located at MLK & Hoover and 39th &  Figueroa. Exposition Park is managed by the Office of Exposition Park Management, a department of the State of California’s Natural Resources Agency.

Exposition Park Lots open six hours prior to kickoff for permit holders only.  All parking for USC Football in Exposition Park has been sold and distributed in advance.  There are no cash lots in Exposition Park during USC Football games.

New processes and technology have been integrated to help you navigate and plan your game day experience.

Four of our campus parking structures now feature Text2Park technology – all you need is your license plate, a mobile phone, and a credit card!

Drive straight in, park in any normal, unmarked space in any of the yellow or green locations below (click on the map to open as a webpage), and text the location code (by the elevator or stairwell) to 25023. These structures are patrolled using LPR (License Plate Reader) technology, so be sure to enter your license plate information correctly and pay as soon as you park your car.

The Downey (in cardinal on map) and McCarthy (in green on map) structures are open to first-come, first-served sales; the Flower and Royal structures (in black on the map) are not available for daily sales this season.

ADA Accessible Parking

ADA Accessible parking is available in all USC Campus lots, as well as Exposition Park. By law, these spaces cannot be reserved in advance and, on game days, are offered to guests on a first-come, first-served basis.  Due to an extremely high demand for accessible parking, we are unfortunately unable to accommodate all of our guests, so please arrive early to ensure that you have a space in a lot. Please arrive with your state issued placard and identification, and parking personnel will guide you to your parking area. The fee for parking is $50.

Overnight parking and camping is prohibited

There is no re-entry for parking. Vehicles may not leave and re-enter the parking lot.

Vehicles parked on city streets are subject to citation. This includes Vermont Avenue, Bill Robertson Lane, Figueroa Street, Exposition Blvd. or Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd.

Bus & RV Parking:

Bus and oversized vehicle parking is by reservation only. Availability is very limited and there is a fee to park. Contact USC Game Management at 213-740-4174 for more information.

Other Public Lots:

Public parking is also available in surrounding surface lots on Figueroa Street and Vermont Avenue at the Browning Street Garage located at Browning Street and Vermont. Parking may be available in other lots near LA Live and the LA Convention Center. Take Metro for transport to USC/Exposition Park.

Bus, RV and over-sized vehicle parking is extremely limited and sold in advance of the event. Tall vans, large SUVs, RVs or buses will not be accepted in any parking garage because of height restrictions.

We have multiple parking options onsite and within Exposition Park for guests to choose from, and additionally, parking is available on the USC campus, which is a short ten-minute walk to the venue.

To avoid lengthy traffic and parking delays, we highly encourage all guests to take public transportation whenever possible, including the Metro E Line which has two stops adjacent to the Coliseum (Expo Park/USC or Expo/Vermont) that are less than a five-minute walk to our entrance gates.
