Historic Houses: The city of Charleston is filled with history, and what better way to immerse yourself in that history than by living in one of our 22 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. For more about each hoouse visit:
