Director's Note

We're glad you found us. Campus Recreation Services at the College of Charleston has a long and rich history. Our team of professional staff and student-employees are grateful to be here to serve along side you during your experience at the College of Charleston. Many of our team members have their own personal stories about why they choose to work with our department, including myself.  

We hope during your time at the College of Charleston you get the opportunity to join us for a workout, play a pickup game, or even to join one of our many sport club opportunities. We offer multiple programming opportunities as well for you to get involved on campus. This extends beyond our students to include our faculty and staff.

We have multiple facilities and extensive hours of operation across campus. We are continually seeking to evolve as our communities evolves around us. Charleston is a magical place, and we hope that you choose to make Campus Recreation Services at the College of Charleston your home as many have before you.  If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me personally at or 843.953.8257.
