Residential Communities

The Office for Residential Education is dedicated to providing all USC Housing residents a quality living environment.  While each residential community is unique, all provide residents with programming targeted specifically to resident needs and interests as well as the support and mentorship of undergraduate, graduate and professional staff members.
