When visiting USC campuses please observe speed limits on campus as signed. Kangaroos cross the roads on and around campus regularly during both day and night and are often seen feeding near the entrance to the university.


While we agree that kangaroos are very photogenic, please respect their space and do not get too close to wild kangaroos.

SEQ Eastern Grey Kangaroos
