The Ronald Tutor Campus Center provides a dramatic and elegant space consistent with USC’s reputation as a world-class university of the 21st century. At the heart of the Campus Center is a grand outdoor plaza, a gathering and dining area that has become the heartbeat of life on campus. During peak hours, the plaza is humming with activity. Every design and programmatic element of the 193,000 sf building is devoted to fulfilling USC’s mission.
Located at the heart of USC, the Campus Center is used by virtually every person who passes through the campus. The focal point of the complex is a welcoming outdoor plaza, a visually stunning gathering and dining area that brings current and prospective students, faculty, staff, alumni, family members and visitors in contact every day.
As the University’s “town hall”, the center provides meeting rooms and offices for student programs and organizations, entertainment facilities, dining and retail locations, conference rooms, a multi-purpose room and open spaces where members of the USC community can study, read, relax or socialize. Spaces such as the Ballroom, Tommy’s Place, Traditions, and the Plaza were designed to facilitate a variety of campus signature events including commencement, homecoming, game-day gatherings, concerts, and programs that host groups from 6 to 1,000 people.
