As a new incoming student, you may be a part of special University program that will
dictate your housing options. Make sure you are aware of the housing options available
to you before beginning the housing application.
Medical & Special Requests
It is important for students with special housing requests to thoroughly review the
housing accommodations section of the application. Students must meet all the requirements
listed on the application to be considered for specific accommodations. Students must
also register any housing accommodations with the Student Disability Resource Center
in order to process the request.
Residence halls and communities will be assigned on a rolling basis after February
15. You will either be assigned a Learning Community or Carolina General Housing.
Consideration for buildings and communities is based on the date of application to
University Housing. The sooner you apply, the sooner you will know your building/community
The roommate matching section of the application will be available mid-March, once
you receive a building or community assignment. All roommate matching is completed
at my.sc.edu in the housing portal. You will only be able to select roommates from
those students living in the community you are selected to. (Roommate matching will
remain open until June 30)
Step 6 - Room Selection
Real-Time Room Selection
Students who apply before May 15 will be allowed to select their building and room
during a designated selection date and time based on availability. This information
will be available in the housing portal once your building assignment is posted.
These dates and times vary by building and community.
(Room selection will begin June 1 and run through June 30)
