Living on campus while you're in college is an invaluable experience, and the same holds true for Coastal Carolina University. It offers the opportunity to meet like-minded people who have similar interests and to meet people entirely different from you. It gives you real-life experience living both in a community and with roommates. And it teaches you what it means to be responsible for your own place of living. It's comfortable, it's convenient and it's fun.
But living in CCU housing also means that you agree to abide by policies belonging to University Housing and the University at large.
Below is a thorough guide to University Housing's policies by which all residents are expected to abide.
Here are the current University Housing license agreements.
Two Year Live-on Agreement
Why is there a two year housing requirement?
A few years ago, Coastal Carolina University determined that our students should have a residential experience at the foundation of their education. First and second year students are required to live on campus unless they are living with their parents or guardians, are married, have dependent children, or are veterans or active military. We have been able to guarantee everyone who meets that requirement a bed on main campus or at University Place and still have enough beds to house a handful of new transfer students.

University Housing creates a foundation of care for resident safety & success.
