Campus Housing

Welcome Home! 

Campus Housing is here to help with anything to do with living on campus – from housing assignments for first year students, room selection for returning students, and coordination of summer camps and conferences.

At the College of Charleston we strive to provide an unforgettable living experience within our residence halls and houses. We offer a huge variety of living options, from traditional rooms and apartments to beautiful historic homes. College of Charleston Campus Housing offers the convenient space you want, the support you need to succeed academically, and the chance to make lifelong friends. In the fast-paced environment of college, the last thing you want to worry about is where to live. Let Campus Housing help you find your home away from home!

If you wish to live on campus, please visit our Apply for Housing page for more information on our process. You may also want to check out all of the options available to you by visiting our Residence Hall Information page. If you would like information about housing accommodations, please visit the Center for Disability Services. To view policies and procedures for students living in on-campus housing, visit Residence Life's Policies and Procedures page.

Resources for quarantine and isolation

The College has compiled some important information and resources about COVID-19, preparing for and entering isolation and quarantine, and ways to make virtual connections, which we're including below for reference. Please take some time now to review this information and refer back to it as needed.

Update for 2021-2022

To our current and future residents:

We know this past year has been tricky and we’re grateful for everything you and your fellow students continue to do to keep us all safe. President Hsu announced the College’s plan to resume a normal academic and campus life by the time school begins on August 24. For Campus Housing and Residence Life, that means returning to full density in the halls (minus some rooms for potential quarantine and isolation) and a return to things like social programming, open common kitchens, visitation, and generally enjoying our full sense of community again – which we’re all craving. 

We’re dedicated to providing you the best on-campus experience possible. Please let us know if you have any questions about Campus Housing at or Residence Life at

We encourage you to visit the Residence Halls and Dining FAQ section of Back on the Bricks, which is being updated routinely. Additionally, you may view recordings of previous virtual Town Halls

Campus Services – including Campus Housing and Dining Services – continues to work closely with Residence Life, Student Health Services, Facilities Management, and other College of Charleston and health officials regarding living and dining on campus.
