USC Beaufort bringing on more student housing

Update: The dorm is opening soon.

The University of South Carolina Beaufort is working on plans to provide housing for another 200 or so students, The Island Packet reports.

The majority of that housing will go south of the Broad at USCB's Hilton Head Gateway campus.

But of interest to Beaufort is a plan to buy a home downtown and convert it to housing for more than a dozen students at the downtown campus.

Maybe they're looking at buying The Castle.
