University Residential Student Community (URSC)
University Residential Student Community (URSC) serves all students who live in University housing by providing them with ways to enhance and contribute to their residential experience at the University of Southern California. URSC funding seeks to allocate funds that allow students to participate, learn, and bond through residential programs hosted by student organizations, building governments, resident advisors, and individual students.

In order to receive funding from URSC, you must receive the support of at least 2 building governments. You are eligible to receive $75 for each building government that signs a contract supporting the event. If all BG’s sign contracts of support, you are eligible for as much as $1,125. Please note: URSC does offer reimbursements, as long as the reimbursement forms are submitted within 14 days following the event. Retroactive funding requests will not be considered for funding.

Applications are due 2 Wednesdays and a Sunday before the program is to take place. All deadlines are strictly enforced. Applications must include a brief summary of the program/event, an itemized budget, confirmed alternative sources of funding, and contact information. URSC is located in the Office of Residential Education, STU200h.
