Working with our neighbors to build a strong community

USC Village

En español

On Tuesday, December 11, 2012 the Los Angeles City Council unanimously voted to approve the USC Village, a project that will transform the area around Hoover and Jefferson Boulevard. The current University Village will make way for a vibrant mix of student housing, state-of-the-art academic and recreational space, and walkable open retail areas that has been long needed.

The creation of USC Village is a historic milestone for Los Angeles in its bid to lead the nation in economic opportunity and forward-thinking development and planning. The USC Village represents an investment by the university that will spur an estimated $1 billion of construction-related economic activity for Los Angeles, and thousands of new jobs, both construction-related and permanent.
