Lodging Information

There are two choices for lodging: downtown Los Angeles and on campus. Downtown is only a 10 min. ride away (we will arrange for shuttle service and there is also fast, cheap local transportation on the DASH). We will reserve the rooms to ensure the special rate, so you need not contact the hotel directly but please enter your hotel preference in the registration table. If you want to share a room, please contact Pauline Martinez at pauline.martinez@med.usc.edu.
