Alternative Transportation Suggestions

We are also suggesting that carpooling or the use of public transportation might be viable options for some people. Information about local public transportation can be found online at: www.compton.edu/campusinformation/publictransportation.aspx

Carpooling to ECC Compton Center is a great way to save money and reduce parking hassles. Compton Center currently offers incentives for employees who sign up for the rideshare program. For more info, please contact ECC Parking Services at 310-660-3593, ext. 3983 with any questions.

Safety Reminders

  • The safety and well-being of students, faculty, staff and visitors is always a primary concern at El Camino College Compton Center.
  • In an emergency, contact campus police 24/7 by calling 911 from any pay phone on campus; or by calling 310-900-1600 x2999 from a cell phone.
  • Night students and faculty are encouraged to park in the same general area as other faculty or students with night classes in their building; this provides the opportunity for a group of students and faculty to walk to their cars after dark.
  • Immediately report any suspicious activity to campus police.

For information regarding these construction projects, please call (310) 660-3100. Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we work to improve the campus.
