Truthfully New North is overhated. It's not entirely awful and is generally pretty liveable. The rooms are way larger than most doubles at USC, the bathrooms have regular enough maintenance (but some still get horrendous at times), and at least for my room, the noise from others isn't enough to both...
New north is the social dorm which means fun, music, and people but this also means screaming at all hours, trash or vomit in the hallways, and disgusting bathrooms. Honestly I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything, but I would never live there again. It’s the iconic college dorm experience. If...
While it was THE party dorm, it was sooo disgusting. I got sick like every other week. Vomit and mucus all over the showers and bathrooms. I am paying 75k for this school, and I deserve AC and clean bathrooms. ALSO: I would not recommend living in this dorm if you're not rich/white. If you're any ty...

If you want a dorm that has nice ass bathrooms, AC, and pristine condition room, go elsewhere, the rooms...

The bathrooms were dirty and the trash would stink from the vomit at least twice a week, or whenever people wo...
I loved my single in New North. The biggest perk was that New North is right next to EVK and the 24/7 Starbucks. It's also close to Leavey Library, which is also 24/7. People were definitely outgoing in this building. I loved it here, even though I was cut short of it because of the corona and had t...
