Inside The Halls

Rutledge, located on the historic Horseshoe, is a coed, apartment-style residence hall. When South Carolina College first opened its doors in January 1805, this building was the entire college. It served as a dormitory, lecture hall, chapel, library, faculty housing and laboratories. The building was later named after John Rutledge who was elected governor of South Carolina is 1798.

This renovated antebellum residence hall features two- and five-bedroom apartments that a include living room and kitchen. The 53 students that live in Rutledge are surrounded by elegant oak trees, gardens and manicured grounds.
