Christopher Slatoff, the sculptor of the Hecuba statue, also sculpted the on-campus statue of USC’s founder, Judge Robert Widney. Slatoff’s work also includes “Enduring Heroes”, a memorial to fallen soldiers in Pasadena, California.

USC Village Self-Guided Tour

USC Village Residential Colleges

Jefferson Boulevard Entrance With its grand opening in summer 2017, the USC Village became the largest development project in the history of USC and one of the largest in the history of South Los Angeles. This 15-acre addition to the University Park Campus is built in the Collegiate Gothic style and modeled after a medieval Tuscan village. It provides a critical gathering space for students and the surrounding neighborhood and includes retail and restaurant spaces that are open to the public, as well as student housing, classrooms, a residential dining hall and a fitness center. The Village’s walkways are made up of enough concrete to build a sidewalk from Los Angeles to Las Vegas.

All residential colleges at USC follow the Oxford model, which combines living and learning, often around a specific theme. USC Village features eight residential colleges: McCarthy Honors College, Nemirovsky and Bohnett, Cowlings and Ilium, Cale and Irani, and Priam. These buildings have increased USC’s undergraduate housing capacity by nearly 25 percent.

Statue of Hecuba, Queen of Troy Created by sculptor Christopher Slatoff, Hecuba stands as the centerpiece of USC Village. As queen, Hecuba proved to be a resilient protector of Troy, inspiring Trojans to fight on in the face of impossible odds, and her presence here celebrates the women of USC. The women at Hecuba’s base—African, Asian, Caucasian, Latina, Native American and Eastern Mediterranean—represent the diversity of the Trojan Family, as well as the breadth of academic offerings at USC. Behind her is a large Coast Live Oak, one of the 390 evergreen native species trees at USC Village. Hecuba gestures outward to welcome the Trojan Family and surrounding community. Target, Trader Joe’s, and More USC Village’s 1.25 million square feet of building space include a wide array of retail and restaurant options, all of which are open to the public. Anchored by Target and Trader Joe’s, many types of shops and services can be found throughout the Village. Restaurants offer everything from Mexican and Mediterranean to organic foods, burgers and ice cream. You will also find an Amazon store, a FedEx office, a nail salon, and a mobility hub. The USC Roski Eye Institute provides optical services in the Village, as well. Receiving unanimous approval from the Los Angeles City Council, the USC Village project established strong partnerships with the surrounding neighborhood. Local residents made up more than 20 percent of the construction labor, and hundreds of permanent full- and part-time jobs have been created by the businesses in the Village. USC also pledged $16 million to the construction of the new Fire Station 15, now located on Hoover Street, and has committed $20 million to Los Angeles’s Affordable Housing Trust Fund.

Fitness Center/Exit on Jefferson Boulevard (Next to CIC) Also home to the Cale and Irani Residential Colleges and retail shops, this building features the USC Village Fitness Center. The fitness center provides 30,000 square feet for cardio, weights and group exercise. It offers fitness classes, personal training, and equipment rental, among other amenities. USC Village also has ample space for bicycles, including repair stations and racks to accommodate more than 1,400 bicycles.

Bohnett David C. Bohnett ’78, a Trustee of USC, is a philanthropist and entrepreneur who founded GeoCities.com, a pioneering e-commerce company. The Bohnett Residential College focuses on social justice through entrepreneurship, fostering an environment where its residents use innovation to tackle social issues, such as diversity and inclusion, homelessness, and college access. Cale USC Trustee Charles Cale ’66 and his wife Jessie Cale ’74 are the namesakes of Cale Residential College, which is devoted to fostering its residents’ global perspectives. Through dialogue and partnerships with various campus departments, students learn about various critical issues the world is facing. Cowlings Students in Cowlings Residential College engage with the arts and culture of Los Angeles, including movies, plays, fashion design and music. Ilium Ilium Residential College houses second-year honors students. As a continuation of McCarthy Honors College, Ilium allows residents to further develop a sense of community and interact directly with faculty in residence. Irani USC Trustee Ray Irani, PhD ’57, has served as Occidental Petroleum Corporation’s chairman and CEO. Residents of the Irani Residential College explore performance science, which focuses on mind, body and business. Through interdisciplinary learning, students discover how to maximize their performance in both individual and organizational settings. McCarthy The Kathleen L. McCarthy Honors College is home to freshman honors students. It comprises a variety of suite formats, housing three, four, or eight students per suite. It also features study lounges, laundry rooms and a visually stunning dining hall. Residents receive faculty mentoring and participate in events that foster community building and holistic development. Nemirovsky USC Trustee Shelly Nemirovsky ’85 and her husband, Ofer, are the namesakes of Nemirovsky Residential College. Students living in this college focus on environmental, social, and economic sustainability. By developing their leadership skills and knowledge, residents of Nemirovsky engage with sustainability challenges worldwide. Priam Priam Residential College fosters its residents’ passion for science, technology and design. Students of all majors are encouraged to develop innovative solutions to global challenges.
