Our online application process is fast, easy and secure, but if you would prefer to apply with a written application, you may do so. Our application is available in PDF format.  We can also mail you an application form upon request; you will need to provide us with your mailing address.

Print out and complete both pages of the housing application, providing all required information and listing your housing preferences. Return the application, along with the $55 non-refundable application processing fee to USC Housing Services, 620 McCarthy Way, PSX 137, Los Angeles, CA 90089-1332.

Payment should be in the form of a check or money order in U.S. dollars, drawn on a U.S. bank. We cannot accept cash or credit cards. Please make the check or money order payable to “USC Housing” and include your name and 10-digit USC ID number on the bottom-left corner. Staple the check to the designated area of the application.

Your application will not be processed without the mandatory $55 application processing fee. This fee cannot be waived. The USC Housing Office will send you a receipt card to let you know that your application was received. Your application date will be the date your application is received in our office–not the postmark date.

Once we have processed your application and made your housing assignment, we will inform you by e-mail.

Please note that our roommate matching process is available only to students who apply online.
