Housing for Fall Transfer Students

Transfer students are encouraged to make their housing arrangements early — well before arriving in Los Angeles. Students who wish to live in university housing or in USC-managed properties should visit housing.usc.edu or review the Living at USC: Upperclassmen and Graduate Students brochure to learn more about available housing. Be sure to apply for housing as soon as possible, as spaces fill quickly.

USC Apartments

Apartments—units with one or two double-occupancy bedrooms and a full kitchen—enable students to lead a more independent lifestyle, with more space and privacy.

Residence Halls

Residence halls offer the traditional college housing experience, with double-occupancy rooms and community bathrooms, plus a required meal plan.


Suites can accommodate up to eight residents, with four double-occupancy rooms and two bathrooms. Suites in Fluor Tower are clustered around a central living space.

Special Interest Floors

USC housing is also enriched by special interest communities that bring students and faculty together to explore ideas, share meals, plan special programs and take advantage of the cultural resources of Los Angeles.

Floors represent interests ranging from health and fitness to the arts and humanities to culture and religion.

Visit housing.usc.edu for detailed housing descriptions, floor plans and more information about special interest floors.
