Residence Life

Welcome Home!

The mission of the Department of Residence Life is to create engaging, supportive, and inclusive communities that foster academic achievement, personal development, and student involvement.

Note: Fall 2021 housing instructions will be posted no later than February 1, 2021. February 1 is the first day you will be able to pay the fall housing application fee to begin the housing application process.


Updated January 19, 2021:

Residential students should check their CofC email for important information about registering for a spring move-in timeslot and the College's mandatory residential COVID-19 testing protocols. For an overview of spring move-in, please visit the Move-Out/Move-In section on the Campus Housing website. 

Resources for isolation and quarantine

The College has compiled some important information and resources about COVID-19, preparing for and entering isolation and quarantine, and ways to make virtual connections, which we're including below for reference. Please take some time now to review this information and refer back to it as needed.

We encourage you to visit the FAQ within the Residence Halls and Dining section of the College of Charleston’s Plan for Fall 2020: Back on the Bricks, which is being updated routinely. Additionally, you may view recordings of previous virtual Town Halls

Housing Schedule for Spring 2021

The residence halls and historic houses will begin reopening for spring on January 7, 2021. Residential students were sent an email with instructions for signing up for a move-in timeslot.

If you're going to be new to campus this spring, check out this short presentation from Campus Housing, Dining Services and Residence Life about living on campus. 

Residence Life continues to work closely with Campus Services – including Campus Housing and Dining Services, Student Health Services, Facilities Management, and other College of Charleston and health officials regarding the details of living and dining on campus this fall.
