    Nemirovsky and Bohnett University of Southern California

    Rated 4.6 / 5 stars by 13 USC students

    "I lived in a two-bedroom apartment with 3 other roommates. It was fantastic! The location is perfect (right next to the crosswalk but still in the Village), it has air conditioning, it's brand new, and the rooms were spacious. I got a corner apartment and since the angles were weird we got so much more space. The lounges and study spaces are huge and really great areas too. And we had a view of the campus and the Shrine. The only con was that sometimes you had to go to another floor because the laundry was down. I would highly recommend living in this building!"

    McCarthy Honors Residential College University of Southern California

    Rated 4.7 / 5 stars by 23 USC students

    "Lowkey felt like a hotel, loved living here. The Village is a great place to live (busy, energetic, access to restaurants/stores) but it is slightly off-campus so classes are farther compared to other dorms."

    Cowlings and Ilium University of Southern California

    Rated 4.8 / 5 stars by 12 USC students

    "Lived in a 2B with one bath, two people in each room. The bathroom is like a hotel bathroom. The kitchen is a little small but big enough to share. The furniture is high quality. One of the rooms is long and skinny while the other is box shaped which is kind of weird. There’s not really a way of telling which you’re gonna get until you move in. You can see this on the floor plans. Cannot beat the location. The building is new and well maintained. The walls are pretty thick, I never had any problems with noise. Lounges are clean and useful. Cons- you need to purchase a microwave"

    "Great place to live as a sophomore. Nice kitchen, spacious rooms, and nice amenities on the floor. 2-3 study lounges and a nice balcony overlooking the Village. It is the smallest Village res college so it is easy to get to your room! Also, the entrance is closest to campus which is nice."

    Rated 4.9 / 5 stars by 7 USC students

    "Parkside IRC was a great place to stay on campus as a freshman. It was a little expensive compared to other dorms, but it had great diversity and was definitely a must for international students. The RAs were really caring they planned a lot of community events. The dorms were mostly "en-suite" with 4 rooms per suite and 2 people per room. Each suite had two bathrooms that were shared amongst the 8 people. The dining hall at parkside is one of THE BEST dining halls on campus."
