College of Hospitality, Retail and Sport Management

Our Facilities

The College of HRSM operates out of three locations including the historic McCutchen House on the beautiful Horseshoe, downtown's IT-oLogy building and the Carolina Coliseum. But there are exciting changes on the horizon...

The College of HRSM features the third largest undergraduate population at the University of South Carolina, and we are still growing... so much so that we've outgrown our space in the Carolina Coliseum. That's why we are excited to announce that there are plans to move into a new home on campus providing us with the space and technology to support our growing programs.

This move will centralize all of our academic classes into an educational facility that has been designed specifically for innovative, hands-on learning opportunities, with a welcoming environment for HRSM students, alumni and guests. We'll be sure to keep you informed of all the details as they become available.

McCutchen House

Located on the historic Horseshoe, just one block from the State Capitol building, the McCutchen House offers a variety of culinary classes and dining opportunities for the entire Columbia community.

Also, look no further for exceptional food, served in a beautifully unique setting. In addition to the classes and programs offered through the Culinary & Wine Institute, the McCutchen House is also a full-service restaurant, operated by the School of Hotel, Restaurant, and Tourism Management. In the fall and spring semesters, guests can enjoy gourmet buffet dining, private lunch dining and elegant, five-course meals at our Thursdays at McCutchen. In the summer months, the Garden Grill fills the patio with students, faculty, staff and visitors taking advantage of a casual, outdoor dining experience.

Learn more about how you can reserve the McCutchen House for private or professional events by calling us at 803-777-4450. 

Carolina Coliseum

The College of HRSM has occupied the Carolina Coliseum since 1969. Located in the southwest corner of campus, the coliseum is surrounded by exciting new developments. From the Strom Thurmond Wellness and Fitness Center and the Greek Village, to the new Darla Moore School of Business building, we've seen a lot of changes during our stay at the coliseum.

When you ask HRSM students, they will admit that there's something special about these thick coliseum walls. Whether it's the shared experience of a few practice laps around the oval hallways while learning the locations of classrooms, or the nostalgia of having gone to the circus in the building as a child (before the circus performances were moved to the neighboring Colonial Life Arena), the coliseum is flooded with passionate minds and fond memories.
