Stroll the world-class campus of USC

A trip to Los Angeles isn’t complete without a stroll down the tree-lined pedestrian walkways of the University of Southern California (USC). The school’s main campus is filled with gorgeous fountains and stunning architecture. As the state’s oldest private research university, USC has grown from a humble 53 students in 1880 to a top-25-ranked university of more than 44,000 undergraduate and graduate students.

The contemporary Radisson Hotel Los Angeles Midtown sits adjacent to the USC campus in downtown LA. Our rooms are the most convenient accommodation available for prospective students taking campus tours, families visiting students and guests participating in campus events.

History of the University of Southern California
At the university’s founding, Los Angeles was a frontier town with no paved streets, no electric lights and no telephones. Four years later, the University of Southern California graduated its first class of three students.

Today, this nonprofit, private research university serves as a global center of education for promising young trailblazers in all sectors and in societies around the world. Many leaders call USC their alma mater, including astronaut Neil Armstrong and filmmaker Steven Spielberg.

Athletics and events at the University of Southern California 
USC is world famous for its first-class athletic program. Both men's and women's teams regularly earn top honors in sports, including basketball, baseball, football, rowing, golf, water polo, swimming, tennis and more. USC’s Trojans have won 125 team national championships. Since 1904, Trojans have also competed in the Olympics, winning hundreds of medals.

Our first-class Radisson hotel is a perfect home-away-from-home for fans attending sporting events at the school's main campus.
