University of Charleston

Your best life.

Why do you come to college?

We know it’s more than the degree. It’s the chance to discover your passions, make new friends, experience things that you will remember your whole life.

At UC, we offer the chance to study on our beautiful riverbank.  To participate in clubs and organizations. To volunteer. To sing, play, create. Your UC life will provide many amazing opportunities – and memories.

Your home away from home.

One of the most exciting opportunities that college offers is living away from home. Because of the size of our campus, every residence hall is just a few minutes’ walk from class, food options, the Innovation Center, the riverbank and more.

Our Residence Life staff works to ensure that living on campus is an inclusive, safe, and fun experience for all of our residents. Discover more about living on campus, and how to make UC your home away from home.

UC Dining

We know. One of the most frequently asked questions is about the food. Parents want to make sure you will be well fed. You want to be sure our food is tasty. So we do both.

UC Food Services offers a variety of meal options (as well as vegan and gluten free options). All residential students are required to have one of our flexible meal plan options and dining plans are accepted at both of our on-campus dining locations.
