New Students

Welcome to the PC family!  We look forward to meeting you and getting to know you in your transition to college life.  As a residential campus, the Residence Life Office is the place to learn about everything related to living at PC.

Housing assignments will begin in May.  New students should submit their enrollment deposit to the admissions office.  Once students have submitted their deposit, we will email you with information about how to use Please Don’t Snore – our roommate matching application.  This information generally arrives in your email one to two weeks after you have submitted your deposit.  All housing and roommate assignments will be posted to your PC BannerWeb account once they are finalized.

Please take a moment to read through the following information before you start packing! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact The Residence Life Office at 864-833-8277.  Custodial service is provided for community areas and community bathrooms in the residence halls. Students are responsible for the proper upkeep of their rooms and suite bathrooms.  To prevent damage, you are not allowed to nail items to the walls. Please use Command Strips or similar wall adhesive products instead of tape. Contact paper on walls or doors is not permitted.  The college provides each room with two beds, two desks, two desk chairs, and two sets of chest of drawers.
