The Retreat at Columbia, South Carolina

University of South Carolina students who want something a little more homey might enjoy the Craftsman-style cottages at the Retreat at Columbia. The colorful homes are surrounded by three football fields of greenspace, perfect for tailgating, pet outings or tossing a football. There are also full-size basketball and volleyball courts, as well as a putting green. A free shuttle takes residents back and forth to campus.
