Winthrop offers full-time students many types of living arrangements to meet individual needs and preferences. Students must be enrolled for 9 semester hours to be eligible for campus housing. Students living in the residence halls are required to have a meal plan. All residence halls are within walking distance of classes, Dacus Library, Thomson Cafeteria and DiGiorgio Campus Center. Laundry facilities, study rooms, kitchens and eating areas are available in most residences. Linen service is not provided by the University. Rooms are furnished for double occupancy. However, if space is available, students may contract for private rooms at an additional cost.
The Courtyard at Winthrop offers private bedrooms in four or two-bedroom suites with a kitchen minus the stove. The Courtyard is open 12 months a year and requires a separate lease. To request an application go to www.winthrop.edu/reslife/forms/. All students assigned to campus housing must sign a contract relating to the terms and conditions of occupancy. It is important for students to read the contract before signing and to be thoroughly familiar with its terms. Violation of terms of the Housing Contract can result in immediate removal from living in the halls and subject the violator to further proceedings in accord with the Student Conduct Code. Graduate students interested in living on campus should contact the Department of Residence Life in the DiGiorgio Campus Center for additional information.
