Media Parking/ Viewing Areas/ Pool Camera Locations:

Martin Luther King Boulevard at Menlo Ave
Designated media parking will be located at Vermont and Martin Luther King (MLK) Boulevard. Viewing will be available to Media/pedestrians along MLK at Lot 6.   This is subject to the Hard/Soft street closures designated by the United States Secret Service (USSS).

USC CAMPUS Senator Boxer Luncheon/Alumni Park
Designated staging/parking for media satellite vehicles shall be on Childs Way.  Only White House Credentialed Media may gather along the sidewalk area adjacent to Childs Way at Trusdale Way and will be allowed to enter the designated safe zone by USSS.  A pool camera will be available.

USC CAMPUS McCARTHY QUAD/PROTEST AREA
Designated staging/parking for Media vehicles shall be on West 34th Street West of Figueroa. The media viewing area for the stage area will be along the grass hill on the North/East Quadrant of the McCarthy Quad. There will be an additional designated media area adjacent to the Protest Area located at Hoover at Trousdale Way.

In the event of an unlawful assembly declaration, and in accordance with the CRESPO settlement, the Incident Commander will avoid moving crowds into areas designated as media staging. In the event of an unlawful assembly declaration during a march, additional media area(s), outside of the impacted area, will be designated by the Incident Commander. (Commander Jacobs typically likes to consider “behind the police line” as his default area to evacuate the media). To the extent reasonably possible, efforts will be made to ensure that the designated media area(s) do not become part of any impacted area.

Media Relations Section will notify City News Service (CNS) of locations for media interest when appropriate, who will in turn, put out the information over the news wire, along with Nixle, which is monitored by media personnel. Media Relations Section will also put out an emergency advisory through its regular notification system.

We are working with the California Highway Patrol (CHP), Department of Transportation (DOT), and the United States Secret Service to minimize the impact to the motoring public. Even with the best of plans, there will be congestion beyond what is normal for any given Friday.

We would like all motorists who anticipate having to travel in and around the USC campus to expect delays and plan another route if possible.

For more information please contact Media Relations Section at 213-486-5910.
