Campus Guide

The blurred lines between the campus and the city mean that Charleston serves as your living-learning laboratory. The College of Charleston’s multi-block footprint sits in the heart of Charleston’s historic district. Steps away from busy King Street – with shops and restaurants galore – you'll find stately oak trees linking the Cistern Yard and cobblestone, pedestrian-only streets guiding you through the heart of campus.
