Housing

Choosing the right place to live during your time in Myrtle Beach is very important. We have several options of housing available for you here.
How to:

  • Choose an economical motel for the summer.
  • Check out approved motels for students on our Listings page.
  • Call motels to inquire about availability of rooms.

Be Careful
Be careful when placing deposits on rooms. Some people might try to take advantage of new students by taking money and not providing a place to stay. Others might put students in inappropriate or unsanitary housing hoping that they will not report anything. If you are in a housing situation with too many students, that breaks health codes, forces you to live in unsanitary conditions, or other issues, please contact: Police Officer Pete Woods at (843) 918-1806 or email pwoods@cityofmyrtlebeach.com. Your visa cannot be cancelled for reporting bad housing conditions!
