Accepting Additional HR Executive Sponsors – Contact Our HR Team for More Information
Our HR Executive Sponsors are great folks to connect with about the different areas within broader Charleston as well as moving to the area. We have more information at the bottom of this page about specific neighborhoods.
Additionally, if you email our team, we can provide estimates on rental prices for a variety of different apartment options for our job applicants. However, it should be noted that The Citadel does not technically “recommend” any apartments. This service and the subsequent information is a simple compilation by location and estimated pricing, so you can get a sense of the area. Specific details about floor plans and pricing should be discussed with the individual apartments, directly.
A Southern Jewel
People are gravitating to Charleston for a lot of reasons: its buzzing restaurants, art and style scenes, its visual appeal, its proximity to the water, its rich history, its southern charm. They all combine to make it a city beyond compare. Whether it’s your first visit or your tenth, you’ll never run out of activities.
Our campus, located on the north end of Downtown Charleston, is 20 minutes from some of the best beaches in the Southeast and our year-round temperate weather makes the Charleston area ideal for surfing, kayaking, climbing, hiking and camping.
The “Holy City,” known for the trademark historic church steeples of the city’s skyline, routinely tops the lists of best small cities in the United States. With more people moving here each year, Charleston is the place to be in South Carolina. Our robust F&B scene, which includes a steady annual circuit of nationally recognized food and culture festivals, continues to headline the long list of reasons to live here. Find a seat among its many outdoor terraces for a drink and some fresh oysters.
Visitors commonly discuss the city’s stately homes, cobblestone streets, and waterfront views. In fact, The Citadel’s newly minted Swain Boating Center allows access to Ashley River right from campus. Don’t have a boat? No problem, faculty and staff can rent a boat right from campus.
It seems like there’s always something going on in Charleston. The annual Spoleto Festival USA is the premier arts festival in the country. The Cooper River Bridge Run has been called the best 10-K race in the world. And every March, top chefs and fashion designers flock to the Lowcountry for the Charleston Wine + Food Festival and Charleston Fashion Week.
The Right Feel
The Citadel’s quaint and secure campus will offer the ideal lifestyle in the bustling city of Charleston. Charleston is big enough to support a vibrant cultural life – huge concerts and small clubs, dance troupes and opera, historic sites and professional sports – and small enough for faculty and staff to feel right at home from their very first day.
In fact, right next door, you’ll find Hampton Park. Hampton Park is one of the City of Charleston’s largest parks, with the largest floral displays of any park in the city. This neighborhood park has a rich history recently documented through a project of the Charleston Horticultural Society, an audio walking tour called Layers of the Landscape. The physical fitness trail is a popular spot for our employees. Just a short walk from campus, employees will spend their lunch breaks walking the park’s many trails.
