Campus Housing

At the USC Language Academy, we focus on academic preparation and campus life. We provide an authentic university experience by offering USC housing for Academy students all year. University housing is safe, secure, and conveniently located on campus. In the fall and spring, students enjoy a unique on-campus living experience in the Parkside International Residential College (PIRC) community. In the summer, students live in a USC-owned apartment complex.

All Academy Housing is non-smoking and offers secure access (only students living in each building can open the front door), ethernet computer access, free local telephone service and utilities. Resident Advisors (trained USC students) live in all USC housing to assist students with move-in and cultural adjustment, to answer student questions and to plan fun get togethers and events for students.

The Academy also provides basic housing supplies for students including sheets, towels and a pillow.

If you have any questions about USC housing please contact the Housing Coordinator at
