I loved living at cardinal gardens- especially in a room that was first floor on Jefferson so I had a quick exit to classes and entrance for friends to go in through. Don't live by the garbage dumpster, rooms are more prone to cockroaches. I lived in building A and only had 1 cockroach (in the winte...
There's effectively no AC or heating because the AC was in the living room and it basically only cooled the living room. One of the two heaters was broken too (the maintenance guys couldn't fix it) so during the winter it was quite chilly. Other than that car gar is really pretty, a good place to st...
It's location is great cause you're not far from anything. Considering how old cargar is the apartments are pretty nice. There a nice bonfire space to chill at. I did get a cockroach once, but that was right at the beginning when we moved in and we never got one again. We also had mice. I would stil...
Great option for upperclassmen. Right next to the gym, Village, but also a bit of a walk from the south side of campus (Marshall, Chipotle, Coliseum)

I loved having keys so I didn't have to scan my finger to get in, and I rarely ever saw my RA so it felt very ...
Was a spacious dorm! A tiny walk from campus and starting to show it's age, but it is worth the balcony and the kitchen space. Only gripe is mice, but buy a mouse trap or 2 and you should have no problems.
This was my favorite place I lived near USC Campus. It gets forgotten a lot since it's one of the older buildings but I would live there over the village. The apartments were huge (esp the 2 person ones) with their own kitchen, bathroom, shared bedroom, huge closest, and large living room. Plenty of...
I loved living at CarGar. I wouldn’t recommend it to freshmen as it’d be harder to make friends than in a dorm, but it’s perfect for upperclassmen. Pros: large windows, rooms didn't feel cramped, double sink, lots of storage place, 5-10 walk to almost all buildings, had basketball court, pool table...
