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.

Note: Fall 2021 housing instructions will be posted no later than February 1, 2021. February 1 is the first day you will be able to pay the fall housing application fee to begin the housing application process.
