The university provides a wide variety of housing options, both on- and off-campus. More than 50 university-owned apartments and residence halls offer residential colleges and a wide assortment of special interest programs as well as housing for graduate and married students. In addition, USC Housing manages seven apartment buildings owned by R.W. Selby that also house USC students.

Housing is available during the academic year. Housing applications are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Freshmen applying by the May deadline are guaranteed housing. Each January, the online USC Housing Renewal (UHR) process gives current residents the opportunity to receive priority over non-residents for housing in the next academic year. Returning freshmen are guaranteed housing in their sophomore year. Limited spaces are available in the summer; a separate application, available in March, is required.

There are 10 Customer Service Centers located conveniently throughout USC Housing to serve your needs. Customer service representatives at each location can provide you with assistance and information.

    For information about USC costs, you can check estimated costs on the Admission Website,, and for specific tuition and fee information per semester, go to the Schedule of Classes, The Schedule of Classes does not include housing.
