Our Mission:

End college homelessness.

Trojan Shelter is a University of Southern California registered campus organization that operates as housing for college students experiencing homelessness in the greater Los Angeles area. Our organization offers free-of-charge housing, meals, and resources to its residents.


Our Team

This organization is co-founded by two students at the University of Southern California who have gathered a team of students dedicated to being part of the solution. We are mentored by a group of professional individuals and professors.

Our Programs

Trojan Shelter will be serving 6 housing insecure college students from the ages of 18-25 who are enrolled in at least 2 units for a whole school year. There, we will be giving them holistic support for them to succeed in college and ultimately find permanent housing after their term as our resident.


General Operations

Trojan Shelter provides a safe and supportive space for its residents. Residents are given a bed and free meals, among other resources.

Case Management

Each resident will be paired with two case managers, one from the Dworak-Peck School of Social Work and another from the Keck School of Medicine.


USC undergraduate students will serve as volunteers, cooking dinner and staying overnight with the residents.

Other services

Residents will be connected to on-campus resources and Trojan Shelter partners to pursue career opportunities.
