Housing and Dining

At the College, you can live well and eat well with comfort, convenience and flavor.

Residence Halls

Living on campus is easy. You can choose to live in one of nine residence halls or 22 historic homes, all located in the heart of downtown Charleston just steps away from classes, friends, the library, the gym and the buzz of city life. 


Your options include air-conditioned suites with free washers and dryers or exclusive apartments with full kitchens for sophomores, juniors and seniors. And, our unique historic houses each have their own personality, where upperclassmen can live in a tight-knit, family-like environment with wireless Internet access.

We also offer some unique housing options like honors residence halls with weekly lectures and seminars, immersive language houses and themed communities with linked coursework and service projects. Check out the full spectrum of on-campus residence options at residence life and housing.



Meal Plans

When it comes to dining on campus, we offer eight convenient locations that feature everything from all-you-care-to-eat options to on-the-go snacks. From brick-oven pizza to salad bars, from grab-and-go sandwiches to vegetarian stir-fry, from sushi to gluten-free and organic options, we can easily satisfy any of your cravings because it’s all here – right on campus.

Remember, you can choose from any one of nine different meal plans, so there’s something to fit every lifestyle. For more information, check out dining services.
