Nestled within USC Village, our new dining hall compliments the vision of the university’s residential college experience which combines living, learning and community to 2,500 students. USC Village is one of the largest developments in South LA history. The new dining hall is visually impressive – collegiate gothic architecture, high ceilings, dramatic lighting and beautiful stained-glass windows accent the 8,000-square foot space with seating for over 400 guests.
Chef Nathan Martinez has created an equally impressive menu to support the USC Hospitality Food Philosophy, featuring a wide variety of dining options including USC’s first ever Flexitarian Station (semi vegetarian where protein is an accent, not the focus) and plant-based station (vegan friendly). Other stations include a full salad, sandwich and soup bar, dessert station featuring made to order sweet and savory crepes and gelato.
Each residential community is anchored by an all-you-care to eat dining venue. Specific meal plan participants enjoy unlimited access to all three dining halls. Each offers a different culinary experience appealing to a variety of dining preferences and nutritional lifestyles of our diverse student population.
