Important Dates 

Housing Applications will be sent out May 15, 2019

Once you have completed your admissions application and been accepted, you'll receive a student housing application.

Priority Housing Deadline: June 10, 2019

We encourage you to apply by June, but we may accept applicants after the official deadline. If you are making any special housing requests, it is better to apply early or your requests may not be honored.

Please contact us at 803.786.3019 with any questions about the housing timeline. 

How Do I Apply for Housing? 

1. Complete Your Housing Application

Housing applications are sent out in mid-May and contain information regarding residence hall preference, roommate selection, and meal plan options. Preferences are awarded in the order they are received so the sooner you return your application, the more likely your selections will be honored.

2. Make your Deposit

Before selections can be made, you'll need to make your admissions deposit. This serves as your placeholder and will secure your spot on campus.

3. Sign your Housing Contract

Your housing contract will need to be signed and initialed by yourself and a parent or guardian if you're under 18.

What Happens Next? 

Receive your Housing Assignment

Housing assignments are sent out July 1.

Once your application has been processed your hall assignment and roommate contact information will be sent back to you.

Meet your Roommate

If you attend one of our new student orientations in June, you'll receive your housing and roommate information before it is officially sent out. If not, you'll still receive you roommate's contact details but it won't be until July 1.
