Return to Campus – what will Fall 2021 look like?

Looking ahead to fall, we plan to resume a normal range of campus activities, though with some measures to reduce density where needed.

Overall, we expect:

  • Primarily in-person classes;
  • Typical occupancy for USC Housing;
  • Indoor and outdoor dining options for students;
  • Resumption of most student-life activities.

We are continuing to monitor the rapidly evolving situation in light of information from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health about the community spread of the virus in the county.
