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.

Our office is now working on housing assignments for all new students.  New Students who submitted their enrollment deposit by May 1st and completed their Please Don’t Snore profile by May 26th will receive their assignments just prior to the June Orientation sessions.  Assignments are done on a rolling basis after that.  All information about housing assignments will be placed into the BannerWeb system and emailed to students at their @presby.edu email.

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 student with a bed, mattress (purchase Twin XL sheets), desk, desk chair, and dresser.
