Residential College

Building

The McCarthy Honors Residential College is the visual center of the new USC Village complex, with a Gothic-style clock tower that spires 145 feet into the air. The distinctive collegiate-style architecture is nod to the university's traditions, while its modern facilities and residential accommodations are a physical manifestation of USC's commitment to education in the 21st century.

On its upper floors, the five story building provides housing for over 500 honors students in a variety of three, four and eight person suite formats.  Each suite is a mix of rooms around a small entry way and one or two bathrooms.  The ground floor houses the area's beautiful new dining hall, where residents will take many of their meals, classrooms, a large lobby and an on-site Housing Customer Service Center.

Features & Amenities

All of the suites are air-conditioned and feature new, stylish furniture.  Suite-style living provides the residents with private bathrooms rather than large community bathrooms.

Along with over 30 residential suites, each floor has multiple lounges and study rooms and a laundry room.

Parking

Parking for Village residents will be available in the new Shrine Structure located about a block and a half east on Jefferson Blvd.

Housing Programs

The McCarthy Honors College is an unique living and learning environment for freshman honors students holding either the Mork Family, Stamps Leadership, Trustee or Presidential scholarships. The residential college experience is promoted by the two residential faculty members and an extensive Residential Education staff, who live along side students and coordinate weekly themed dinners at the dining hall featuring presentations from USC faculty and administrators as well as visiting scholars.

Spaces in the building are available qualified scholarship holders on a first-applied basis. Residents will participate in a retreat at the beginning of the school year, moving in early to take part.
