Visit The Citadel
Fall in love with our campus.
And while you’re at it, grab some
shrimp & grits. You’re in the right place.
The Citadel was established in 1842 and was originally located on Marion Square in beautiful downtown Charleston, SC. Today the picturesque campus, which was moved in 1922 to the bank of the Ashley River, is home to 24 major buildings and over 3,400 men and women enrolled in over 20 full and part time graduate and undergraduate programs.
If you have never attended a Friday parade, you will want to schedule this impressive event into your itinerary. A campus tour will also help you get acquainted on a deeper level. The Citadel is open to the public year-round, and you will find that your welcome here is just as warm as Charleston’s coastal climate.
