Serving the residents of the University of Southern California

Founded in 1988, Residential Student Government 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. RSG, acting as a liaison between students, faculty and administrators, expresses a unified voice to build community, empower residents, and create opportunities for academic excellence and leadership development. Made up of six boards: Advocacy, Building Government President, Community Outreach, Funding, Honorary and Programming, RSG strives to act as a resource by coordinating and promoting all phases of student development and self-government, while representing the residential community on both regional and national levels.

In the spring of 2013, USC’s housing government celebrated the 25th Anniversary of its founding. In the fall of 2013, University Residential Student Community changed its name to Residential Student Government.

RSG is under Residential Education (ResEd) which includes the network of Resident Assistants (RAs), Assistant Residential Coordinators (ARCs), and Residential Coordinators (RCs).
