    Where Living is an art form

    University of South Carolina housing can be expensive, invasive (since resident directors are often required to visit rooms for frequent observations), and sometimes even frustrating. There are time restrictions that students must adhere to, inconvenient safety drills and constant meetings. The Retreat at Columbia offers students a better student housing alternative with spacious apartments, beautiful outdoor areas and enhanced privacy and security. Our luxury apartments at Columbia are fitted with the country's best amenities, offering the ultimate opportunity to relax with friends and focus on both socializing and academics.
