I was visiting with my college age nephew. We loved the variety of buildings and how picturesque the campus was. Great location near King Street and an easy walk if you are nearby!

The university had its check in day and the streets were closed for cars making it a great place to walk around. In the past the uni purchased surrounding buildings and these are great examples of Charleston houses. Go for a wander it’s fascinating
