Cardinal Gardens is an extremely popular apartment complex consisting of nine individual townhouse-style buildings connected by winding, tree-lined walkways. This energetic community is home to upperclassmen, as well as freshmen, housed in fully furnished one and two-bedroom apartments. Each apartment has a full kitchen and bathroom and a spacious, air-conditioned living room. All units were recently upgraded with new furniture and laminate flooring.
Features & Amenities
Located on the north side of Jefferson Boulevard, Cardinal Gardens is across the street from campus and near to both the Lyon Recreation Center and Café 84. A Housing customer service center is on site.
The newly renovated central courtyard provides a great gathering place for residents, where they can relax around the modern fountain in comfortable couches and chairs, grill on two gas barbecues, or spend a quiet evening sitting next to the large outdoor fireplace. Residents also enjoy playing on the basketball half-court. For indoor entertainment options, the complex has a lounge in the customer service center, with a 70 inch flat screen TV, and pool and foosball tables.
Unlike most facilities for freshmen, Cardinal Gardens remains open during the winter break between semesters.
All residents have a required partial apartment meal plan.
Cardinal Gardens has a large parking lot surrounding the buildings located within the complexes gated and walled perimeter. Permits are purchased from USC Transportation. Secure bicycle racks are conveniently located throughout the facility.
