How much will living in USC housing cost you?  Here are estimated university-billed living expenses for undergraduates:

Freshmen

Estimated yearly living expenses, (two semesters of rent, default required meal plans and parking) range from $15,831 to $17,359 for the more common suite and residence hall double room types. Rents for some assignments, especially single-occupancy room types, are higher and will affect the yearly cost.  Cable and Internet connections, and all utilities, are included in all freshman buildings.

Upperclassmen

For upperclassmen, the estimated per-year living expenses (two semesters of rent, default required meal plans and parking) range from $10,005 to $13,215 for the more common apartment types in a double occupancy room. Rents for some assignments, especially single-occupancy room types, are somewhat higher and will affect the yearly cost. Cable and Internet connections are included in all buildings; a nominal fee of $60 per semester is charged for electricity in some buildings.

Estimates don’t include items such as groceries for those living in assignments without full meal plans or personal incidentals.
