Columbia International University has a mobile home village which contains 83 lots. This village is located on campus property and is accessible by car from Frost Avenue. It is connected to the main campus by paved walkways through a wooded area.

Of the 83 lots, 25 contain rental homes owned by the university. These homes have either two or three bedrooms. Each home has laundry connections and is furnished with a stove and a refrigerator. The rental units are available to married students who are either part or full time students. They are not assigned on a first-come, first-served basis; priority is given to those with the greatest need. Those interested must complete a village application. These applications are reviewed a few months before each semester and applicants are informed if a unit is available for them.

All rental rates include trash collection, but all other utilities are the responsibility of the renter. The utilities bills are paid to CIU on a monthly basis.

The remaining 58 lots contain homes owned by current students or employees. Each semester some of these homes are available for sale to current or incoming students. All current homes for sale are included in the off-campus housing list. The Student Life Office should be contacted before purchasing a mobile home in the Village.

Pets are only allowed in the owned homes, may be no larger than 24 inches at the head, and must be kept indoors.

Living in a mobile home may not be conducive to those with strong allergies.

For more information about The Village, please contact the Student Life office at 800.777.2227, ext. 5236 or e-mail us at

The address for The Village is 7103 Frost Ave, Columbia, SC 29203

The Student Life Office maintains a list of off-campus housing opportunities for our single and married students. It contains houses, apartments, duplexes, and mobile homes for rent or sale.

To those posting rental opportunities: there are validated reports that scammers are accessing websites like this to steal money. As much as possible, find out who prospective renters are. CIU provides this list for you to use at your own discretion. While most information and contacts are reliable, CIU will not be held responsible for misinformation or misrepresentation.
CIU does not endorse any individual person listed in this database.
