This three-story apartment building is the place for students looking for an active and vibrant community on the leading edge of communications and technology. Annenberg House is a residential community for currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate students of communication, journalism, and public relations, and their roommates, regardless of school affiliation. It is also an excellent housing option for transfer students.
For undergraduates, Annenberg offers two-bedroom apartments accommodating four students each. The two-bedroom apartments are reserved for graduate students; in these units each resident has their own bedroom. All of Annenberg's apartments have individually air-conditioned living rooms and bedrooms, and many have balconies. Recent improvements include new LED lighting, ceiling fans, dual-pane windows with modern coverings.
The exterior of the building was recently renovated and each apartment was fully refurnished, with new beds, desks, chairs and tables.

The lush lawn adjacent to the building is a great spot for football, Frisbee or just relaxing. Two built-in barbecues in front of the building are a great location for social activities or tail-gating before a USC home game.
