Frequently asked questions

Is my contract for just a semester or the whole academic year?

Housing contracts are for the full academic year. (Fall and winter semesters)

I am planning to enroll mid-year. Can I apply for winter housing?

Yes. Students can submit a housing application in fall semester to be placed on the housing waitlist. As vacancies open, we will fill vacancies and charge pro-rated amounts for mid-semester placements.

Do I have to pay for parking?

Parking passes are included for residents of housing. The parking pass allows residents to park in any of the residential hall spots on a daily first-come, first-serve basis. For alternative locations, we encourage students to use any of the surrounding 24 hour free city lots or main student lot on campus. Parking passes are available for residents at the front desk. Please bring the following:

  • Student ID

Contracts must be canceled in writing via email from the applicant to housing@sc4.edu.
