Neighborhood Homeownership Program

The USC Neighborhood Homeownership Program provides benefits-eligible employees with monthly payments totaling a maximum of $50,000 or 20% of the home's purchase price (whichever is less) over a seven year period. Qualifying single-family homes need to be within the program areas around University Park Campus and Health Sciences Campus and must be the employee’s primary residence.

Faculty & Staff Housing Program

The USC Faculty & Staff Housing Program supports the recruitment of selected faculty & executive staff by assisting in the purchase or rental of a single-family residence for personal use in the Los Angeles area. Assistance to eligible employees may come in different forms: one-time subsidy towards a down-payment or closing cost, monthly mortgage or rental subsidies, short term loans or shared appreciation loans.

The Real Estate & Asset Management Department provides some housing for incoming faculty or staff. The McCulloch Townhomes provide a safe and comfortable environment very close to campus. These units are offered on a first-come, first-served basis to new employees to help them adjust to the price of living in Los Angeles, and to encourage USC’s transition to a residential campus.
