Promoting safety, wellness, and emergency preparedness

As a major research university located in one of the most exciting cities in the world, USC’s urban locale offers a dynamic, city-based environment for research and learning. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the limitless offerings throughout the campus and the city. In doing so, all members of the university community are also advised to learn as much as possible about exercising caution in day-to-day situations, maximizing personal safety and wellbeing, and having individual readiness for emergency situations.

First steps to safety:

  • Download USC Emergency numbers into your mobile phone. The numbers are 213-740 -4321 (main campus) and 323-442 -1000 (Health Science campus)
  • Sign up for TrojansAlert: Through the TrojansAlert system, university officials contact registered members of the Trojan Family via text message, voice-mail or e-mail to apprise them of situations presenting an ongoing risk to public safety in our campus neighborhoods.
