Visiting the Campus


Per S.C. Governor’s March 15 order, the College of Charleston has implemented a modified schedule to play our part in preventing the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and protect our greater community. We regret that on-campus events be limited at this time.

  • In-person campus visits will not be held from Monday, March 16 – Friday, May 15. Visit the Virtual Visitor Center for virtual tours, contact information and more ways to see the campus online.
  • Further information regarding rescheduled events and alternative visit methods will be posted on the Admissions portal page.
Schedule a Tour

Visitors to the College of Charleston are struck by the beauty of its historic buildings and shaded walkways, and the occasional glimpses into the future, which are associated with the steel and glass of the Beatty Center at the School of Business.

The campus is located in the heart of the Historic District of the city, with easy access to the businesses in and around the thriving Port of Charleston, the burgeoning tech community (the presence of big companies such as Amazon’s CreateSpace, Blackbaud, Boeing and Google have earned the city the nickname, Silicon Harbor) and the healthcare industry (Medical University of South Carolina is a few blocks from campus).

Your first step should be to schedule a campus tour. Because our tours are very popular, plan to reserve your space at least two weeks prior to the day you anticipate being on campus. And be sure to set aside time to enjoy the hospitality and good food that made Charleston the Top City in the U.S. and Canada in the Travel + Leisure 2013 World’s Best Awards survey.
