Residence Halls and Dining

Fall 2022

Will visitors be allowed in the residence halls?

You may find up-to-date information regarding guests and visitation on the Residence Life website. 

Is there a chance that students living on campus will be sent home if COVID-19 numbers get too high?

Our plan is to keep students on campus; however, we will also respond to the conditions on campus and will do what we have to do to keep students and our campus community safe.

Will we know if roommates are vaccinated?

The College of Charleston is unable to share medical information including vaccination status of students per HIPPA and FERPA guidelines. We encourage roommates to speak with each other about expectations about their room and living environment, and they may seek guidance from their RA as they do this.

Dining Services

What are my options if I prefer to not dine inside?

Reusable to-go box program

Dining Services offers a reusable to-go box program with your meal plan. Fill up your to-go box for quick and easy access to Liberty Fresh Food Co. and City Bistro. The box is exchanged each visit for a clean one. 


Mobile ordering

Mobile ordering is available for CofC students and employees at the campus Chick-Fil-A, Einstein Bros. Bagels, Marty's Place and Starbucks. Download the Transact app and select College of Charleston to use mobile ordering at these locations. The app accepts Cougar Cash, Dining Dollars, Visa and Mastercard at all five locations and meal taps at Einstein Bros. and Marty's Place.

How are dining facilities being cleaned?

Dining Services will be following operational and cleaning procedures as recommended by the CDC and SC Department of Health and Environmental Control.

I am isolating in place. How do I get my meals?

If you have COVID and are unable to isolate off campus, you are allowed to briefly leave isolation to pick up food to go if you wear a KN95 mask. (Dine-in is not allowed.)

You have several on-campus dining options that work with your meal plan using a Meal Tap (MT), Cougar Cash (CC), Dining Dollars (DD) or personal credit card (PC).
