USC Housing has just under 7,000 undergraduate bed spaces in our inventory and prioritizes those spaces for new freshmen and rising sophomores. However, as of academic year 2021-22, there are over 20,000 undergraduate students enrolled at USC, far more than we can house. The result is that 65% of undergraduate upperclass students live in non-university 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.
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.
