In 2009, Claflin students were offered the option of living in the Russell Street Apartments, which are in the former Hotel Eutaw on Russell Street. A Columnia lawyer had purchased the vacant hotel with plans for turning it into university housing. Claflin had a need for extra housing, so an agreement was made. Fifty male upperclassman Claflin students began occupying the apartments for the 2009-10 academic year. While the apartments are not traditional University housing, Claflin bills the students, the University’s housing department manages the rooms, and the same rules that apply to students who live on campus are also applicable to residents in the apartments.

The apartments average about 320 square feet, and there’s a kitchen area on every floor. Each room has air-conditioning, cable, and high-speed Internet access. In addition to the Russell Street Apartments, there are also several traditional apartment complexes in Orangeburg, but needless to say, not many students at Claflin live off campus. There are so many large residential halls on campus that house students at a reasonable price that there really is no need to move off campus.
