Opting-Out of Global Partner Housing

In accordance with industry standards, USC requires students participating in Affiliate Partner programs to reside in the housing provided by that partner. We follow this practice to promote the health and safety of students, as independently found housing arrangements do not always represent a safe or positive living experience for the study abroad students whom we support. If you feel your circumstances merit an exception to this policy (e.g. you require accommodations that are not available in program housing), please contact the Education Abroad Office as early in the application process as possible.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
