Housing and Transportation Information

Housing and meals are the responsibility of the individual student.
Summer students from outside the Charleston area have several options.

• Staying with family/friends in the area

• There are several apartment complexes in the Charleston area that provide 3-month leases. Students who rent or lease an apartment will be responsible for paying the rent and/or lease and all utilities associated with their living arrangements.

• Summer sublets are available on a limited basis around Charleston. MUSC has an Off-Campus Housing Office that is happy to assist you with finding available listings in the Charleston area. Once you are accepted into the program you can access this service.  Please note: subletting means you will be responsible for the rental amount plus the utilities.

• We are in the process of securing limited housing for the SURP with a private developer. They will be offered on a first come first serve basis and are located approximately three quarters of a mile from the MUSC campus. For the double occupancy apartments student will be charged rent at a reduced rate while participating in the SURP. More information will be posted about this housing in the coming months.
