The recently completed USC Village brings a 15-acre, 1.25 million-sf expansion to the University of Southern California campus and marks the largest development project in the university’s history. The $700 million project provides an additional 2,500 beds and 100,000 sf of retail space to the Trojan campus.

Included across the Harley Ellis Devereaux-designed development’s six buildings are lobbies, multi-purpose rooms, group study rooms, individual study rooms, outdoor areas, a gym, a media room, and a dining hall. The dining hall features custom stained-glass windows and gothic-style seating.

Tangram Interiors supplied the furniture for the student areas. The furniture arrangements are flexible and can be moved around to provide a layout that best fits a given situation.

C.L. Max Nikias, USC’s President, described the project as looking like “a medieval Tuscan village refined for the 21st century.” The mix of student housing, retail, and dining is expected to generate $5.2 billion of revenue for the local economy and generate thousands of jobs.

The project increased the USC’s University Park footprint by nearly a third.
