I am a transfer student. Am I guaranteed housing?

While USC Housing strives to offer university housing to as many transferring undergraduates as possible, our large returning student population and limited space prevents us from guaranteeing housing to transfers.

What is USC Housing Renewal (UHR)?

USC Housing Renewal (UHR) is our program for assigning current residents to housing for the upcoming year. UHR participants are given priority in returning to university housing. It takes place January through March. More information about next year’s UHR will be available in December.

I applied for USC Housing Renewal but didn’t get a space during the General Lottery. What should I do?

You should sign up for the UHR Wait List. UHR participants on the Wait List will be offered housing during the spring and early summer as spaces become open. For more information on how the Wait List works check here.

If USC Housing is not able to offer me an assignment, are there other resources for housing?

Yes.  USC Housing has partnered with Off-Campus Housing 101 to provide students with listings of available rentals from private landlords in the North University Park area, around the main campus.  All listings are within the USC Department of Public Safety Patrol Zone and they offer customer support services to assist you with obtaining private rental housing.
