Best New Waterfront Student Housing

930 NoMo

Staff Pick

For a lot of us who went to college, off-campus student housing meant either run-down student villages on the edge of town or cheap downtown hovels run by unscrupulous slumlords — we’re looking at you Lt. Gov. Henry McMaster. The game, it seems, has changed. Case in point: 930 NoMo, the new student housing tower being built just north of the Ravenel Bridge at 930 Morrison Drive. With rent starting at $899 a month for a single room in a four-bedroom apartment, amenities include riverside balconies, walk-in closets, a rooftop lounge, a fitness center, a cycle center, a tanning salon, a bocce court, a soundproof music studio/band room, and a 9,000-square-foot WiFi-equipped pool terrace with a DJ booth. And while we still haven’t seen the interior because it’s under construction, the renderings look très chic. Perhaps the fanciest feature of all is that each bedroom has its own bathroom. Dadgum. Can we go to college again (on our parents’ dime)?
