USC Housing Updates Fall 17 & Spring 18

This information was sent to students in November 2017 as updates for their spring 2017 and fall 2018 housing updates:

Dear USC Housing resident,

If you are interested in being released for Spring 2018, please note the following:

If you are graduating in December 2017, you can be released for Spring 2018 due to non-registration. You will need to bring a Stars report as proof to the Housing office by 5pm, Friday November 3, 2017. Upon verification, you will be released from your contract as of the end of the Fall semester.

If you are participating in a Spring Semester Away program, bring your completed Semester Away cancellation form, signed by your program advisor, to the Housing office in McCarthy Way Parking Structure (PSX) by 5:00pm on Friday, November 3, 2017 to cancel your contract for Spring.

If you will be registered for classes, you may sign up for the Housing Replacement Release Waitlist at the main Housing Office. As USC Housing needs your space for Spring assignments, we will contact you.

If you choose to find your own replacement, remember that, per the Housing contract and Living agreement, replacements will not be processed until two weeks after the Spring check in date. So, the first date replacements can be taken is January 18, 2018. Keep in mind that you will still be responsible for rent up until the time you are released and your replacement accepts a contract. In addition, you will lose the Spring confirmation fee. You can find additional information regarding Contract Release by Replacement on our website:

Please contact the Housing office if you have any questions at 213-740-2546.
