Residential College


The largest structure in USC Village, the Cowlings and Ilium Residential College is a tangible statement of the university's commitment to housing undergraduates on or adjacent to campus, providing over 700 spaces to sophomores, juniors and seniors.  Clad in the university's signature brick and cast stone motif, the building is both impressive and functional, home to the Trader Joe's specialty grocery and Target Express stores, Core Power Yoga, a hair salon and the USC Village's Department of Public Safety station.  The second floor has two expansive courtyards, offering a great place to gather with friends, study or watch movies as part of the building programming.

The selection of room types is extensive: there are six two-bedroom plans alone, accommodating two to four residents, and ranging from the compact (and economical) loft format to a larger apartment with two bathrooms. The small two bedroom and two bedroom loft-style types emphasize efficiency and do not have a living room, and instead of a full kitchen have a kitchenette, with a sink, oven and four burner range; each bedroom has small microwave oven and mini-fridge. The three bedroom floor plan and some designated two bedrooms have two bathrooms.

Features & Amenities

Students living in the Cowlings and Ilium Residential College will share in all the recreational and educational opportunities the USC Village provides, as well as the convenient retail and dining choices of the complex.

A Customer Service Center devoted to assisting residents is located on the first floor, where students can also find a large room for secured bicycle, skateboard and scooter parking.

Each floor has three separate laundry rooms, in addition to multiple lounges, study rooms and open seating areas.

Residents have a mandatory partial meal plan that can be used at the USC Village dining hall, as well as other USC Hospitality outlets on campus.


Residents of USC Village may apply at USC Transportation's website for a parking permit at the USC Shrine Structure located about a block and a half east on Jefferson.
