2018-2019 Housing Contract (pdf) Housing contracts are binding for the entire academic year (both fall and spring semesters).

Spring 2019 Housing Contract (pdf) for students starting during the Spring 2019 semester.


Spring 2019

Step One: In order to be able to access the housing application you will need to pay the $200 housing prepayment and the $50 application fee either online through MyCharleston (under the eBill account, then click eDeposit) or in person at the Treasurer’s Office. Campus Housing suggests that you take care of this now so you are ready once the application opens on November 1, 2019 at 9:00AM. If you have concerns about making the $200 housing prepayment and are currently receiving financial aid you can request a waiver by emailing or coming to Campus Housing at 40 Coming Street.

Step Two: Starting November 1, 2019 at 9:00AM and after you have made the payments you may begin the application by choosing the MyHousing/MyDining button within MyCharleston. During the application process you will update your housing emergency contact, answer profile questions, select a meal plan, and sign your housing contract.  This step must be completed before your designated room selection time so Campus Housing suggests completing this as soon as possible starting November 1, 2019 at 9:00AM. 

Step Three: Campus Housing will work on the student’s assignment based on the preferences listed on the application and available spaces.  Campus Housing will send an email to the student in late December confirming their housing placement and include contact information for their roommate. 


  1. Log into MyCharleston
  2. Select the MyAccounts tab, then scroll to the bottom and click the link that says Log onto eBill account. Click the button for Open my eBill account.
  3. In the new pop-up window, select Deposits at the top, then select the term (2019 Spring)
  4. In the drop down menu, select housing deposit. The system will prompt you to submit the $200 housing prepayment (this confirms your intent to request on-campus housing)
  5. Repeat step 4, but select housing application fee.  The system will prompt you to submit the $50 housing application fee (this will allow you to access the housing application)


If necessary, you may cancel your housing application and bed space online using the CANCELLATION PAGE of the housing application. The cancellation will be timestamped and processed as soon as possible. If you leave the college for any reason (withdrawal, transfer, leave of absence, graduation, academic dismissal etc.) please cancel your housing application online immediately. Notifying another campus department of your reason does not automatically cancel your housing application and room reservation. Cancellation penalties will apply based on the date of cancellation.

Now - January 2, 2019 students can cancel their housing contract during this time, however the $50 application fee and $200 housing payment will not be refunded.
