Despite its name, New North Residential College is one of the university's oldest housing facilities, a place steeped in USC tradition,combineing classic residence hall architecture with modern amenities and forward-looking programs. New North’s typical resident is an active scholar looking for a sense of community and modern conveniences who wants the traditional residence hall experience for their first year at college.
New North is comprised of four buildings: Elizabeth Von KleinSmid Memorial Hall (EVK-NEW), home to the Everybody's Kitchen dining facility and a Customer Service Center, College Hall (COL-NEW) and Harris (HRH-NRC) and University (URH-NRC) Residence Halls. Most of the rooms in the EVK and Harris sections of the building have sinks, while most of those in the College and University areas do not. This residential college is coeducational housing, with men and women in different sections of the building.
The complex has a centrally located enclosed patio area with plenty of shaded seating and an outdoor fire feature. Residents are encouraged to stay healthy by using the state-of-the-art workout room featuring treadmills, ellipticals and StairMasters. The study rooms and television lounges on each floor offer both quiet reading space and an excellent place to meet with friends.
The building is conveniently located near dining options, including the Everybody's Kitchen dining hall and Trojan Grounds coffee shop, as well as library facilities and other freshman housing. All residents have a required full meal plan.
