Charleston Bridge Students

Campus Housing is excited to be a part of the Charleston Bridge Program. This one-of-a-kind residential bridge program offers an enriching environment on the College of Charleston campus while taking classes provided by Trident Technical College.

Bridge students are required to live in College of Charleston residence halls and can choose from Berry Hall, Buist Rivers, Craig Hall or Liberty Street Residence Hall. Students must also purchase a Freshman Resident Meal Plan to use at the on-campus dining locations. Please review our residence hall information and rates.

To apply for housing, Bridge students must first pay the $400 enrollment fee. Once that payment is made, students will apply for housing in the MyHousing/Dining portal via MyCharleston. To access the housing application, students will need to pay a $50 housing application fee inside the portal. Your spot in the program will not be secured until you’ve applied for housing. Housing is guaranteed for all Charleston Bridge Students, but you must complete your application by 11:59 p.m. EST on May 1, 2022.

All fees are non-refundable. This includes the deposit ($400), the housing application fee ($50), and the program fee ($1450). If a Bridge student moves into the residence hall and then withdraws from the program (voluntary or involuntary) they are responsible for the full semester housing and meal plan charges for the fall. The housing contract with the Bridge addendum (last page) clarifies the policy on refunds for Bridge students.

Bridge students will be assigned roommates who are also in the Charleston Bridge Program and placed in Bridge-specific suites when possible. Bridge students are not eligible to live with non-Bridge students.

If you would like to connect with other Charleston Bridge students, please visit the Charleston Bridge Facebook group or you can search possible roommates inside the MyHousing/Dining portal.

All Bridge students must pay their total bill to Trident Technical College by August 1, 2022, or they will not be allowed to move into the residence halls.
