This year’s tournament will be held in the Lower Level (LL) of Fertitta Hall (JFF), at the University of Southern California. The building is located in the southeastern corner of campus, at the intersection of Figueroa and Exposition Boulevards. USC can be reached via car or public transportation. LA Metro users should disembark at the Expo Park / USC Station, which is within walking distiance to Fertitta Hall. For those who drive, parking has been reserved on campus, at the McCarthy Avenue Parking Structure. The structure’s entrance is on the west side of Figueroa Boulevard, halfway between Jefferson and Exposition Boulevards, across from the Galen Center. Upon arrival, tell the parking attendant that you are visiting for “Crosswords LA.” (A daily parking pass will cost you $12. Unfortunately, that cost is not covered in the ticket price for the event.*

* Note: The McCarthy Avenue Parking Structure does not have any elevators. If you require an elevator, I encourage you to instead purchase a pass at the parking structure behind the Radisson Hotel. Should you require accessible parking, please drop me a private note; I will provide you more specific directions through other channels.
