Family at graduation

Housing & Mailing Services

Parent and Family Relations


USC Aiken has three beautiful residential facilities for students, first year through senior year: 

  • Pacer Crossings
  • Pacer Commons
  • Pacer Downs

Most first year students live in Pacer Crossings, a combination of some first year students and upperclass students live in Pacer Commons, and upperclass students live in Pacer Downs. 

On-campus living permits students to immerse themselves in the college experience. They learn how to live with and near others who bring new and enriching experiences to their world. Living on-campus also affords students an opportunity to become more independent and is a great transition to independent living after graduation.

Note: On-campus housing is required for freshmen with few exceptions.

Mailing Services

Mailing your student a letter or a package (students love getting mail and/or gifts from home!) is simple. Make sure that you have the student’s full name and appropriate residence hall and suite, apartment or bedroom letter on the envelope. 

When necessary, staff will email residents that they have a special delivery at the office area.
