Timing Your Housing Search We recommend that your housing search begin 6-8 weeks prior to the date you want to begin living in Charleston. This should be adequate time to be selective without paying unnecessary rent.
If possible, allow yourself 2 consecutive business days in Charleston to actively seek housing. For your temporary stay, special MUSC rates are available at several local hotels. Click here to view area hotels with special MUSC rates.
Continuing students, staff and faculty can access current listings of rentals, sales and roommates needed using their MUSC-issued username and password (NetID). New and/or accepted students must contact the Off-Campus Housing Office to obtain a temporary username and password. Your acceptance will be verified before this information is given.
