Historic Houses

The City of Charleston has a rich history, and what better way to immerse yourself in our stellar location than by living in one of our historic homes? Historic houses are another type of “residence hall,” typically for upperclassmen who are looking for a unique community. Each house has a different layout, and some houses have full kitchens and shared living spaces along with shared, free laundry.
