How to Apply for Spring Housing

Please review the Spring 2022 Housing Contract, which you will sign during the housing application process. 

During the application process, you will designate your housing emergency contact, answer profile questions, select a meal plan, let us know your building preferences, indicate a roommate preference (optional), and sign your housing contract. For students under the age of 18, your parent or guardian will also be required to sign the housing contract. 

Since spring housing assignments are made based on the date the housing application is completed, we suggest you apply as soon as the application opens.

Incoming New Students

Step One: To access the housing application, you’ll need to first pay the $400 College of Charleston enrollment deposit, either online through MyCharleston or in person at the Treasurer’s Office. If you have concerns about making the $400 enrollment deposit, you may request a financial need-based waiver by emailing the Office of Admissions at admissions@cofc.edu.

How to pay your enrollment deposit online:

  • Log into MyCharleston.
  • Select the My Accounts tab, scroll to the bottom, and click the Log onto eBill account Then, click the Open my eBill account button.
  • In the pop-up window, select Deposits at the top. Find the term (2022 Spring) and click Select.
  • In the drop-down menu that will appear to the right, select Spring Deposit Incoming Students. The system will prompt you to submit the $400 enrollment deposit.

Step Two: Starting November 1, 2021, at 9:00 a.m. EST, you may begin the spring 2022 housing application by clicking the MyHousing/Dining button within MyCharleston.

If you just paid your CofC enrollment deposit, you'll be able to take this next step 24 business hours after making your deposit. To begin the housing application, log into MyCharleston and click the MyHousing/Dining portal icon at the top right. Once in the portal, click the Apply for Housing/Meal Plan button. You will be prompted to pay the $50 housing application fee.

Since spring housing assignments are made based on the date the housing application is completed, we suggest you apply as soon as the application opens.

Current and Returning Students

Starting November 1, 2021, at 9:00 a.m. EST, you may begin the spring 2022 housing application by clicking the MyHousing/Dining button within MyCharleston. In order to be able to access the spring 2022 housing application you will need to pay the $200 housing prepayment and the $50 housing application fee in the portal. If you have concerns about making the $200 housing prepayment and are currently receiving financial aid, you can print out this waiver and return it, along with appropriate documentation referenced on the form, to Campus Housing at 40 Coming Street, by email at housing@cofc.edu, or by fax at 843.953.6590.

Roommates

Open rooms for the spring are limited and, while we will do our best to accommodate two (maximum) students who would like to room together, we cannot guarantee roommate placement. You will be able to request one roommate in your housing application on the Hall Preferences page. Both students will need to have completed the housing application to be placed together. 

Housing Assignments for Spring

Beginning in December, Campus Housing will place students who have completed their housing applications. Anyone who has completed their housing application by December 7, 2021, will receive their placement via email by December 17, 2021. Applicants who apply after December 7 will be placed and emailed no later than January 4, 2022.

Cancellation

If necessary, you may cancel your housing application and bed space online using the CANCEL APPLICATION button on the homepage of the MyHousing/Dining portal. The cancellation will be timestamped and processed as soon as possible.

Cancellation penalties will apply based on the date of cancellation. Please refer to your Spring 2022 Housing Contract for the penalty fees associated with your cancellation date.

Housing Accommodations

Campus Housing recognizes the needs of students with disabilities. We work in conjunction with the Center for Disability Services to coordinate proper facilities and arrangements for students with a documented disability. Students should share any requests for accommodations in their housing application under the personal and contact details page; however, students must apply for housing accommodations by contacting Disability Services at 843.953.1431. Find more information at the Center for Disability Services.

If you have any questions regarding the housing application process, please feel free to contact Campus Housing via email at housing@cofc.edu, by phone at 843.953.2015 or in person at 40 Coming Street.
