I’ve written that Fluor Tower has been demolished and mentioned Trojan Hall and Marks Hall are scheduled for demolition over winter break.
So where are students living?
USC has new dorms at the Village across the street from campus such as the infamous Al Cowlings Residential College.
There are also a lot of non-university owned complexes that have been built in the past 15 years ringing the campus, although they hardly provide the experience of a college dorm for a freshman.
The bottom line is you want to live on the actual campus, the options are dwindling. USC actually leases some units at the Gateway apartments on the corner of Jefferson and Figueroa for students.
There are still some traditional dorms like Webb Tower, Pardee Tower, Birnkrandt, EVK, College Hall and Harris.
But options are dwindling, especially because USC can build whatever it wants where the old dorms stand. Eventually, Cardinal Gardens is going to be torn down too.
The bottom line is the traditional experience of living “on campus” is more difficult to obtain now.
