Residential Colleges

Welcome first-year students! Residential Colleges are the communities where students form strong connections during their first year at USC. They are often the place where students find their first friends, and feel like they belong as they get to know the campus. You’ll begin to understand what being part of the Trojan Family means as you meet your neighbors, interact with Faculty in Residence and RAs, attend events, and more.

Welcome transfer and graduate students! Transfer students live on campus in second-year residential colleges and continuing student residential communities. There are also some continuing student apartments in two of our first-year residential colleges. Graduate students live in our graduate and family housing communities. We look forward to welcoming you to campus and having you as part of our community!
