USC Housing Contract Cancellation Process

In line with the university’s plans regarding the structure of the upcoming fall term and the limited in-person, on-campus activity, USC Housing is working with students to ensure they understand their options for canceling their housing application. If you decide that you no longer need a space in USC Housing for the upcoming academic year, USC Housing will allow students to cancel pending applications and existing housing renewal reservations without penalty and will return select fees (see below).

Existing Housing Renewal Reservations

Your reservation status was changed to ‘an application pending an assignment for the upcoming academic year. The confirmation payment previously charged to your student account will be credited. You can cancel your application by July 15, 2020 to have your application fee credited as well.

Deadline to Cancel: By July 15, 2020

Existing Applications

Your application status is still ‘pending as an application for assignment’ for the upcoming academic year. You can cancel your application by July 15, 2020 to have your application fee credited.

Deadline to Cancel: By July 15, 2020

For more information, please visit the USC Housing website.


Spring 2021: Please note that the availability of USC Housing assignments for the spring will be dependent on the available supply and cannot be guaranteed. Students looking for housing beginning in the spring would need to submit a new USC Housing application after Sept. 1, 2020. USC Housing will share additional details soon.
