USC MAP Housing Form

Name (as spelled on your application)


Date of Birth





Deposit ID is the eight (8) digit number found on the third page of your Conditional Offer Letter in the Payment Instruction Section. Be sure to include all zeros at the beginning of the number.


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.
