Newly admitted students to USC should not need to register on our portal. Their registration information will automatically be uploaded from the USC Admission Office.
If you are a new graduate student, and your information has not yet been uploaded, you need to register and create your USC Housing account before you can complete an application When registering you will be asked to provide us with basic personal data, such as your full name, 10 digit USC ID number, birth date, gender, mailing address, phone number and e-mail address.
After you are admitted to USC (and, if you are a graduate student, registered on our portal), you will receive an e-mail from USC Housing regarding your login information. You will not be able to apply for housing until you receive this e-mail.
