All units have air-conditioned living rooms and many have balconies.

Housing Programs

Graduate Housing Program: Master of Laws

In partnership with USC Housing, the USC Gould School of Law is one of the few law schools to offer housing to its students. The Master of Laws (LLM) Program is designed to meet the needs of international graduate law students by providing them with safe convenient and full-furnished housing at a competitive rate. In order to secure a space in Founders, applicants must apply for housing by April 14, 2017.

LLM students may request either a 9-month or 12-month contract period when applying. The options allow residents to move-in to their apartments in early August, a few weeks in advance of the start of fall classes and stay through mid-May 2018, or until the end of July 2018, for those who plan to sit for a U.S. Bar Exam.
