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. For students admitted prior to February 1, login information will be e-mailed late in January. For all other students, it will be e-mailed within a week of admission.
To log in, use your 10-digit USC ID number (no spaces or dashes) and the password e-mailed to you. Once logged in, you may complete a housing application, create and edit your profile, search for roommates, and find out about your housing assignment.
Please visit the Profile section to ensure that your name, gender, date of birth and permanent address are correct, and to enter any additional information, such as your emergency contact. You will be asked to create a profile–information we need to make your housing assignment In addition, by answering a series of questions about your personal living preferences, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in our roommate-matching process.
Your personal details and any special needs information will remain private. You can change your profile any time by clicking “Profile” on the Application web page.
