Housing & Residential Life at USC Upstate
All new full-time freshmen under the age of 20 are required to live on campus unless they live in the local area with their parents.
USC Upstate students have three affordable housing options for on-campus living: the Magnolia House (for freshmen only), the Palmetto House (for freshmen and upperclassmen), and the Villas (for upperclassmen only). The Office of Housing and Residential Life provides tours of the housing complexes upon request, which allow you to meet the residential life staff and tour the public areas and individual rooms when available.
Application Procedures and Roommate Assignments:
After you have been accepted to the university, you can log into Self Service Carolina and choose Housing Services. Make sure you select the Upstate Campus. You will be asked to submit an application fee, which can be done online with a debit or credit card.
The application fee consists of the following payments:
• $ 100 advance room payment fee (Applied to fall housing charges)
• $ 45 application fee (Non-refundable)
• The total application fee is $145.
You will receive immediate email notification upon completion of your application, and your request for housing will be processed. Roommate requests are honored if possible, but there are no guarantees. Room assignments will be posted to Self Service Carolina the first week of July. For additional information, call the HRL Office at 864-503-5421.
