The Department of Computer Science officially moved in June 2014 to Harbor Walk East, the building closest to the Cooper River. The new space provides all faculty offices and features three classrooms, flex space, seven research labs, two student work spaces, and a conference room. Oh...and breathtaking harbor views!
WiFi is available and a P.O.D. Market (on the first floor of Harbor Walk West), providing on-the-go snacks, beverages, and meals, is on site. All major Computer Science courses are hosted at Harbor Walk East.
Less than a mile from campus, courses at Harbor Walk begin at a 30-minute delayed interval from the main campus schedule. This delay is to ensure faculty and students have enough time to travel from the main campus to Harbor Walk. While the Aquarium Garage is located across the street, faculty and students are encouraged to walk, bike, or catch a ride with CARTA DASH. DASH, a free service, conveniently stops on Concord St at the SC Aquarium, just steps from Harbor Walk.
The Department of Computer Science has partnered with the Office of Sustainability to pursue sustainability at Harbor Walk East, the College of Charleston campus and beyond. How are we making a difference to get CofC to Zero Waste:
- Encouraging Computer Science students to use the CofC Bike Share.
- Partnering with Charleston Moves to educate students on safe bike travel routes.
- Installed water bottle refill station to promote reusable water containers.
- Common recycling receptacles were distributed in the Harbor Walk hallways and trash cans removed from classrooms to promote better recycling behavior.
