Housing and community
Watch the video to learn about USC Good Neighbors.
USC is dedicated to building and enhancing relationships with the neighborhoods that surround our campuses. See below for two unique ways the university encourages community involvement.
Neighborhood Homeownership Program
What better way to support the surrounding communities than to work, shop and live in them? (Plus commuting is a breeze!)
USC's Neighborhood Homeownership Program encourages benefits-eligible employees to purchase and occupy homes in the neighborhoods surrounding UPC and HSC. Employees may receive monthly payments totaling up to $50,000 over a 7 year period for eligible homes.
Qualifying properties include single-family homes, townhomes or condominiums in defined areas around UPC and HSC. (See maps at right.) Detailed information on this and other programs is available at the Real Estate and Asset Management website.
The USC Good Neighbors Campaign offers employees, students, alumni and friends of the university an opportunity to make donations benefitting the communities that surround USC's campuses. In recent years the program has directed more than $1 million annually to health care, tutoring, legal help, arts education, sports, and safety initiatives for local families. All employees can take advantage of the opportunity to easily donate to this campaign through payroll deduction.
