Best People

It all starts here. In Auxiliary Services we pride ourselves in a diverse mix of talented and dedicated people from all walks of life. The Trojan Family lives here in employees who have served USC for 5, 20, even 40 years. When we recruit, we search for the brightest stars in the best industries. From Accounting to Transportation, you’ll find people from Abercrombie and Fitch, The Culinary Institute of America, CPK, Deloitte and Touche, DHL, Hollister, The Hyatt, Ralph Lauren, The Ritz Carlton, Vans, and more. We truly are “World Class, Right at Home.”



Best Service

What do you need? People at USC have high expectations and we are no exception. That is why we provide the very best service every day. We benchmark our Pac 12 university colleagues, the top-ranked universities, and the best practices in all the industries we represent for service ideas and improvements. We are constant contact with our customers through surveys, focus groups, secret shoppers, online feedback forums, student / faculty / staff governments, and day-to-day personal interaction so that we can create the best USC service experience for you.



Best Products

Whether it is food or merchandise, we make sure that it is the best product for the right price. We offer premium brand name merchandise and popular food franchises, and we balance that portfolio with signature restaurant concepts and private label products that bring the best value to USC. From the award-winning Lab Gastropub, the popular Team Trojan clothing label, and the name food brands that are in the Ronald Tutor Campus Center, we have the best value, the best quality, and the best products.
