to you

College is the most transformative time of your life. It’s where you explore and discover. Most importantly, it’s where you find out who you are. That’s why we’ve created a modern student living environment, just steps from the University of South Carolina, combining the comforts of home with state-of-the-art amenities. All specifically designed to foster a strong sense of community–so you can be the best you, around interesting people just like you.

Picture yourself here!

health & wellness

A fitness studio for physical wellness. Discussion areas and quiet relaxation rooms for mental wellness. Along with healthy snacks and beverage options. Stay fit, inside and out.


Fast, reliable Wi-Fi is as essential as water. Actually, we know water is a close second. Here, you’ll get that blazing-fast Wi-Fi, along with a wide range of study spaces, keyless entry and a fully equipped study lounge. It's productivity at a whole new level.

Community Events

Juggling heavy schedules along with study and lab time can make it tough to meet new people. No worries, we’ve got that covered. We host exciting events in our student living environments, where you can mingle, discuss and bond with fellow residents.

Hosted Events

To further foster your growth, we bring in inspiring speakers, creating invigorating events to keep you involved and connected. It’s 360 degrees of learning, the way it should be.


From our poolside pavilion to our recreational clubroom, or even our zen garden, you'll have access to everything you need to relax.

get to know


Student living, redefined. With concierge-style services led by a professionally managed staff, you’ll have the convenience of your own private bedroom for those quiet study hours, a gourmet kitchen to fuel your mind, in-home laundry and the ability to relax–all without ever leaving your apartment. When it’s time to head to school, the University of South Carolina is just a few blocks away, or you can hop on the USC Shuttle which stops every 15 minutes just outside our leasing center.
