On Campus

USC’s two primary campuses, both located in the heart of Los Angeles, welcome thousands of guests and visitors each year. The 229-acre University Park campus, home to the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences, the Graduate School, and most of USC’s professional schools, is adjacent to Exposition Park with its world-class museums and recreational facilities. A few miles to the northeast is the 79-acre Health Sciences campus, home to the Keck School of Medicine of USC and the School of Pharmacy as well as three major teaching hospitals.
