Office of Housing Operations & Residence Life

Housing Students

Welcome to Gamecock Living!

We want you to make Gamecock housing your home away from home, and enhance your community through joining its goals and purposes. We hope this year will be full of personal growth and educational accomplishments. Please know that our residence life staff is here to assist and support you in the community!

On-campus living provides opportunities for involvement, activities, and knowledge. We believe that learning does not end in the classroom but is enhanced by interacting with a diverse group of residents, participating in leadership opportunities, and engaging in life-learning activities.
