The 1988 Master Plan
The information on this microsite (http://www.usc.edu/community/upcmasterplan) reflects archival data last updated in 2008. For the most accurate current information on the University Village Specific Plan, please visit village.usc.edu.
In the 1980s, USC commissioned Gin D. Wong and Associates to develop a comprehensive update of the master plan. Reflecting academic needs and priorities as well as community growth, master planning in the larger Exposition Park community, long-term and area-wide parking and transportation requirements, and student accommodations, the plan addressed development solely within the finite amount of land defined by the established campus boundaries.
The plan identified a number of campus sites with development potential, including surface parking lots and buildings nearing their functional obsolescence. Also among its recommendations was the relocation of non-academic functions ? such as library storage and student housing ? off campus to the north and east.
