Part of the exciting new USC Village complex, the Cale and Irani Residential College is a five-story edifice designed in the Collegiate Gothic brick and stone architectural style. The first floor is devoted to common areas and facilities and the student apartments are on the upper floors. The second floor has two expansive courtyards, offering a great place to gather with friends, study or watch movies as part of the building programming.
A chief feature of the building is its large selection of room types--there is a floor plan and rent rate for just about every student's needs and wants: one bedrooms for two or three students, two bedrooms for two or four students and large three bedrooms accommodating six residents in double rooms. The small two bedroom and two bedroom loft-style apartment types are designed for efficiency and do not have a living room and instead of a full kitchen have a kitchenette, with a sink, oven and four-burner range; each bedroom has small microwave oven and mini-fridge. The three-bedroom floor plan and some designated two bedrooms have two bathrooms. All apartments are fully furnished and have air-conditioning.
Most of Cale and Irani's residents are returning upperclassmen, but a number of two-bedroom, four-person units are available to incoming freshmen who would prefer to live in an apartment. First-year freshman will only have the 2B4P and 2B4P-Loft room types as preferences when they apply.
Features & Amenities
The residential college's ground floor is home to USC Village's 30,000 square foot state-of-the-art fitness center, which occupies much of the building's ground floor where students can work out on a variety of modern machines and equipment. That same floor also has a large, secure, parking room for bicycle, scooters and skateboards and even provides charging locations for electric mobility devices. The building has two laundry rooms on each of the four residential floors, in addition to multiple study rooms, lounges with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the courtyards, and open seating areas.
The FedEx Mail Center, providing packaging and mailing services to USC Village residents, is also in the Cale and Irani Residential College.
A Customer Service Center devoted to assisting residents is also located on the first floor.
Freshman residents will have a mandatory full meal plan and undergraduate residents will have a mandatory partial meal plan. These plans can be used at the USC Village dining hall, as well as other USC Hospitality outlets.
The first floor has a secure building bicycle parking room. Residents of USC Village may apply at USC Transportation's website for a parking permit at the USC Shrine Structure located about a block and a half east on Jefferson.
