As a master's student at USC, you will need to find a suitable place to live before you arrive. Off-campus Student Services (OCSS) at USC provide support and helpful information about living off campus, including details about available apartments and houses for rent in Columbia and the surrounding area. Please visit www.sa.sc.edu/ocss
. Currently, we know that off-campus housing in Columbia is limited, difficult to find, and often requires a 12-month lease. Housing is frequently booked in August when most students start their programs.
NOTE: USC MAP Housing assignments require at least a 2 semester (Fall
2019 and Spring 2019) commitment due to rental agreements with our
partner property management groups.
