Eight new residential colleges are housed within five of USC Village’s six buildings, creating not only a new home, but also new ways to learn for more than 2,500 undergraduates. McCarthy Honors College is the only building to house freshmen. The first new campus housing complex in a decade, USC Village holds 663 residential college units: 518 suites with kitchens and another 145 without them. Also onsite is a substation of USC’s Department of Public Safety, which is staffed 24 hours a day. The addition of USC Village expands undergraduate housing across USC by 24 percent. About 9,200 students, both undergraduate and graduate, can now live in USC housing. Space at other USC housing facilities was reconfigured to accommodate many more graduate students and students with families, spreading the benefits of USC Village beyond Trojan undergraduates.
