It’s only natural that the College of Charleston – located in a city renowned for the breathtaking beauty of its waterways – would someday have a presence on Charleston Harbor. That day has arrived.
As part of the ongoing renovation of academic buildings on the College’s main campus, several classrooms, labs and offices in the College of Charleston’s School of Sciences and Mathematics have been relocated to the eastern shore of the Charleston peninsula.
The College has leased 45,000 square feet of space at Harbor Walk, a commercial and retail center located in the Aquarium Wharf area. The building is situated along the Cooper River, adjacent to the S.C. Aquarium.
Located less than one mile from the College’s main campus, the leased space is required to support the renovation of the Rita Hollings Science Center, Physicians Auditorium and the planned renovation of the Simons Center for the Arts.
Harbor Walk is divided into two sections – Harbor Walk East and Harbor Walk West. Harbor Walk West, formerly an IMAX theater, will house classrooms, labs, and faculty offices for the Department of Biology and the Department of Physics and Astronomy.
Harbor Walk East, the building closest to the Cooper River, will house the Department of Computer Science, a few biology faculty offices, as well as a biology lab.
To support academic and administrative operations at Harbor Walk, the College has developed a special website that addresses important topics such as class schedules, transportation, parking and security: http://space.cofc.edu/harbo...
Amenities available to the campus community at Harbor Walk include Wi-Fi, charging stations for mobile devices, bicycle racks and an on-demand convenience store that offers healthy and convenient food options.
