All You Need To Know
University Housing will continue to release information about your room right up until move in. Check back frequently for updates of important information that you will need to know about your room.
If you want to use a microwave or refrigerator in your residence hall room, you'll need to purchase or rent a combination microwave and refrigerator called a microfridge. No individual refrigerators or microwaves are allowed in rooms that have beds in them. A microwave is acceptable in apartments only.
In an effort to limit contact with residents personal space, and to promote proper distancing, University Housing will indefinitely suspend suite and apartment style monthly bathroom cleanings. Traditional style bathrooms will be cleaned in accordance with recommended University guidelines on a daily basis.
University Housing has a dedicated maintenance department exclusively for our residence hall buildings. If you have a non-emergency maintenance issue throughout the year, you can contact them online. Emergency issues and maintenance issues that may cause permanent damage to property should be reported 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by calling 803-777-FIXX (3499).
As members of the Carolina Community, you are expected to treat your residence hall as a HOME. Damage to community items are treated as damage by the community, so please be aware that the entire community will be charged for damages to elevators, hallways and entrances.
To receive the green room certification and to determine your “green” status, attend a Green Dorm Room Certification event hosted by your building’s EcoRep or email to ask about receiving a “Green Dorm Room Certification” questionnaire and certification sticker.
To assist you in having the best living experience possible, University Housing will provide all residents with a roommate agreement. This agreement is a guideline setup jointly by roommates to govern everything from visitors, food sharing and personal space. A residence life team member will provide further information during your initial floor meetings.
Review the Department of Information Technology (DoIT) website for computer recommendations and requirements. You will need a 25-foot Ethernet cable to connect to the data jack in your room. Also, don’t forget to update your operating system with all critical patches. You can install free antivirus software when you arrive to campus. When you move in, you’ll need to know your network username and password to complete your setup. Simply log on to my.sc.edu to find this information.
