Cardinal Gardens and McClintock Apartments is one of the most popular housing options among continuing undergraduate students. Conveniently located just across the street from the USC Village which houses amenities like Target, Trader Joes, and USC Village Dining Hall, residents can always get a quick meal before heading to class. The community consists of townhouse-style buildings connected by winding tree-lined walkways. Residents can choose between fully furnished one or two-bedroom apartments, each with a full kitchen, bathroom, and a spacious air-conditioned living room. The newly renovated courtyard provides a great gathering place for residents, where they can relax around the modern fountain in comfortable couches and chairs, barbecue on the two gas grills, or spend an evening sitting next to the large outdoor fireplace. Residents can also enjoy playing half-court basketball, planting fresh flowers and herbs in the garden or lounging in the Customer Service Center equipped with a 70-inch flat-screen TV and billiards table.
