Residence Life & Housing

What is ResLife?

Erskine College Residence Life exists to foster a culture of community that spurs students toward a greater grasp of their identity, informing responsible decision-making and in the hope of uncovering their purpose & satisfaction in Christ.

We are dedicated to providing safe and comfortable residence hall environments that encourage Christ-centered communities that support the holistic development of students. We are a residential campus. In order to provide the experiences and opportunities for growth to meet the mission and goals of Erskine College, it is important that the Erskine student live, study, exercise, worship, and socialize in the atmosphere expressly created for that purpose.

Residence Halls

All undergraduate residence halls are equipped with free wireless access to the internet as well as central air and heat, laundry facilities, and a kitchen. See below for more information on all housing options!
