Charleston Southern Residence Life

In keeping with the mission of CSU, the Office of Residence Life strives to create an environment that is conducive to the intellectual, emotional, spiritual and relational well-being of each residential student. Integration of faith in learning, leading and serving are elements that produce opportunities for Residence Life to partner in building a thriving learning community within our dorms.

[05/13/19]   Do you have your room for fall 2019? Returning students can sign up now on MyCSU under the Room Sign-Ups tab. Sign-up today!

ResLife staff had a little friendly competition yesterday. Who do you think won laser tag? Teams: Casey Bolduc & Jonathan Franklin Zachary Sibrava & Brittney Greer Malcolm Jackson & Julie Alimpich Pam Poelker & Jessica Hobbs @ Stars and Strikes Family Entertainment Centers

[05/03/19]   Students in applicant group 1, don't forget room selection closes tomorrow! If you miss the deadline, ResLife will assign you to the spaces still available with other students that also need a room. Take advantage of making the choice yourself, and choose a room before it closes tomorrow!

[04/26/19]   For anyone who missed the application the first time, or has decided to live on campus in the fall, now is your chance to sign up! The process is the same as before:

Housing Application Form will be available from 4/26/2019 12:00:00 PM to 4/29/2019 7:00:00 AM (preliminary lottery numbers will be assigned when you complete the application - we will reassign these before roommate selection)
Roommates Request Portlet will be available from 4/29/2019 11:00:00 AM to 5/1/2019 7:00:00 AM
Room Selection Portlet will be available from 5/1/2019 11:30:00 AM to 5/6/2019 11:30:00 PM

If you have any trouble or questions please contact us so we can assist you with getting signed up!

[04/24/19]   Room Sign-Ups Update: We believe we finally have the Room Sign-Up process fixed and ready to go. If you completed the housing application your lottery number has been updated according to class and GPA.

Please find an update about your lottery number in the Roommate Request portlet. The Roommate Request process will start on 4/25/2019 at 10 AM and end on 4/28/2019 at midnight.

You will then begin Room Selection on Monday, 4/29/2019 at 10:00 AM and close on Sunday, 5/5/2019 at midnight.

[04/22/19]   Good morning and happy Monday! We are now experiencing issues with the room selection portion of room sign-ups. We are working to fix the many issues and will communicate with students as soon as we have a solution.

We have plenty of rooms and will have everyone signed up in no time! Sorry for the delay!

[04/20/19]   We’re still experiencing issues for lottery numbers and roommate selection for room sign-ups on MyCSU. The system is new to us and the process worked in testing. Unfortunately, we’re experiencing some issues now that we’re live, and have contacted the company to assist us with fixing it. We will certainly work with students who are currently signed up, and everyone will get a room assignment. Our desire is for everyone to be in their preferred room with preferred roommates. We appreciate how proactive many of our students have been in this process! We’re hopeful to have it fixed soon and will communicate updates via Roompact and social media. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate everyone’s patience as we work to get this process working again!

[04/14/19]   Calling all students wanting to live on campus next year! Don't forget to complete your housing application through MyCSU TODAY! It closes tonight, and tomorrow begins roommate selection followed by room selection. If you don't submit an application you can't pick a roommate or a room in this round. We will run this process again, so if you miss the application this time, you can always apply in another round.

The first floor welcome area has plenty of seating for students and guests to visit and a font desk.

The first floor has the laundry room for buliding residents, as well as food and drink vending machines.

CSU's newest residence hall is open and ready for residents to take up residence.

We are so excited to show you this sneak peak of CSU’s newest residence hall, opening this Friday, March 1st! The new residence hall offers four- person suites (two double- occupancy rooms) with common areas, a shared kitchen and lounge (accessible by building residents only), study spaces, a student activities room, and an elevator! We can’t wait for you all to see it!

[01/06/19]   The Department of Residence Life welcomes residents back this weekend, Saturday, Jan. 5, 1-5pm and Sunday, Jan. 6, 2-5pm. As outlined in the Student Handbook and on the CSU Website, each student must officially check-in at the beginning of each semester. Moving into a residence hall without going through the proper procedure will result in a $100 fine. There is also a $100 fee for late check-in. We ask all residents to bring their CSU student ID to check in. If residents are unable to check-in on time, please contact the Residence Life office ASAP (843)863-7190 or [email protected] so we can work with you.

We love seeing and interacting with our residents and their guests! Here's a quick reminder about visitation in the residence halls:

To read the entire open house policy, click the link to the student handbook below!

Due to excessive rain during the summer, final completion of the Strom Thurmond Center Parking Lot has been delayed. The parking spaces still need to be clearly marked with stenciling that designates who may park where. When complete, residential students will have 67 total parking spaces in the Thurmond Center Parking Lot. Completion of the stenciling should take place in the next few weeks.

Until that time, students are asked to limit their parking in the Thurmond Center Lot to the designated spaces identified in the photo (see below). These parking spaces will also be identified with yellow caution tape.

Designated parking will provide parking for faculty, staff, and students. Also, it will provide students living in Women’s North, Women’s South, Russell East and Russell West with parking near their residence.

Additional parking may be found in the Quads parking lot, the Field House parking lot, the Library parking lot and the Commuter parking lot (near the hotel). Campus Security will assist students with an escort to their residence hall if they need to park in an outlying parking lot. Simply call them at 843-553-5896. We appreciate your patience and consideration for others as we attempt to complete this project in the next few weeks
