2022 Thanksgiving & Winter Recess GIFT Parking

The USC Department of Public Safety and USC Transportation are pleased to announce a free parking program during the winter break for students, faculty, and staff.

Now in its 17th year, Operation GIFT (Group Initiative For Theft Prevention) offers free parking at the UPC Grand Ave Parking Structure and HSC Valley Parking Lot. beginning Monday, November 21, 2022, and ending Monday, January 9, 2023. If you are leaving town and plan to leave your vehicle parked on or near the USC campus during the holidays, Operation GIFT makes your holiday experience a little easier by providing you with free secure parking. Parking is available on the fourth floor and above at these two parking structures only.
