Visiting in person?

If you are arriving by car: USC has several public parking options on campus. A good location for LJS is the Downey Way Parking Structure. This is best reached via the Downey Way Entrance (Gate 6) at the intersection of Vermont Avenue and 36th Place. Take the NE exit, then walk down Downey Way to LJS. 

If you are arriving by Lyft/Uber: Use the Inkpen Lab address above.

If you are taking the Metro: Take the Expo Line train and get off at Expo/USC. Walk north-west through campus to LJS.


Photos of Stabler Hall (LJS) are in the slide show in this section. Enter through the white external doors, then take the staircase (doorway to the left of Allen Kershaw's office).
