An image of the English building located at 5 College Way.

Five College Way is home to the English Department at the College of Charleston. Originally constructed circa 1826 by Abiel Bolles, a teacher from Connecticut. Bolles opened a female academy on the property at 5 College Way and later built 7 and 9 College Way as the school expanded. The College acquired the residences in 1971.
