Inside The Halls

A visual landmark on the university campus, Capstone is a coed residence hall located close to many academic buildings. Offering breathtaking views of the campus and Columbia, the 18th floor is home to the Top of Carolina, a revolving restaurant open to the public throughout the year. The rotating platform and mechanism was acquired from an exhibit at the New York World's Fair.

Housing 579 residents, Capstone features a classroom on the first floor, community kitchens, as well as the Gibbes Court dining hall that is available to all students. This suite-style residence hall is also home to the Capstone Conference Center.
