Core Campus

Core Campus

The Core Campus Project is a major new addition to Clemson University’s Campus Life.

This 260,000 square foot mixed-use facility includes student housing, retail and residential dining, and a new home for the Calhoun Honors College. University Housing & Dining is proud to be in full partnership with our Honors College colleagues in expanding our long term, highly successful Living-Learning Community from its current Holmes Hall space and expanding its scope to become Clemson’s first Residential College.

400 Honors students live on-site in Suite-style rooms, while all Clemson Honors students enjoy the new public community spaces that includes central lounge space, study rooms, a library space, a Grand Hall and two classroom spaces. The Faculty-in-Residence helps plan and implement educational, recreational, social and cultural programs while serving as a role model, mentor, adviser, teacher, and leader in the residential community. New Administrative spaces in the facility houses all Honors office staff, including providing a new home for the National Scholars and Major Fellows Programs.

300 student beds on the South-end of the property houses first year students in traditional rooms with a new-to-Clemson bathroom style called a “wet core”. Three locations on each floor hold a cluster of 3-4 bathroom modules that include a toilet, sink and shower behind a single closed door offering privacy within community.

At the front of the property a new pedestrian “main street” connects Fort Hill Street with the Quad archway entrance at Norris Hall. Outdoor dining space combines with indoor options to create a multitude of options for the Clemson community to connect.
