Access to USC Libraries Buildings

As of July 19, 2021

Several important changes will take effect on Monday, July 19, as we continue expanding on-campus access to library spaces, collections, and services:

  1. Reservations for study space in Doheny, Leavey, Norris, and Science and Engineering Libraries will no longer be required. Those libraries will be open for study and circulation services during current summer hours.
  2. If you hold study space reservations for the week of July 19, you may enter the library at the time of your reservation or any time during hours of opening. You will not need to present your reservation or check-in confirmation upon entering.
  3. Trojan Check verification will no longer be required to enter open library buildings. In line with County of L.A. and university guidelines, masks are required inside library buildings regardless of vaccination status.
  4. Doheny, Leavey, Norris, and Science and Engineering libraries will be open to members of the public, subject to ID requirements below.

Reservations will continue to be required for research with special collections.

Identification requirements: USC students, faculty, and staff will be required to present a valid USC Card to enter Doheny, Leavey, Norris, and Science and Engineering Libraries. Visitors not affiliated with USC must present a valid, government-issued, photo ID to enter.
