Kelly House

Student Housing — Charleston, SC

The Kelly House was constructed in 1995 as a privately owned student housing facility and was the first private student housing facility developed in the City of Charleston.  As privately owned and managed student housing, restrictions were put into place that required the occupants be full-­‐time students at any of the local educational institutions.  In 2002, the College of Charleston purchased the property and incorporated the facility into its student housing network.  Located at 106 Saint Philip Street, the four-­‐ story building consists of 58 residential units, 236 beds and 60,000 total square feet.  It features a center courtyard, central laundry facility, multi-­‐zone fire alarm system, digital security cameras, 24-­‐hour security desk, and keyed entry. All the apartments open to outside corridors overlooking the interior courtyard and are constructed in two bedroom configurations. The townhouse apartments are two story units that consist of four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and one living room with a full kitchen. The bulk of the apartments are single-­‐level units that are shared by two to six students and consist of two to three bedrooms and one to two bathrooms.
