Located at the entrance to Clemson University along SC Highway 93, the Douthit Hills Community will provide approximately 1,650 new student beds and a mixed Retail and Student Amenities facility at its center. The project site is broken into the following Zones:
Part of the Douthit Hills Development will comprise of five and six-story residence halls with 885 beds for upperclass students. The new buildings will be a mix of one, two and four-bedroom apartments in adjacent structures closest to campus. Each bedroom will include a full size bed as well as a washer and dryer in every unit.
In addition to the residential communities, a new Student Center (the Hub) will offer a residential dining facility, a campus bookstore, a fitness center and other services for residents in the part of campus. The dining facility will also serve as a gathering space for study groups as well as meeting space for student organizations. Retail and a cafe will ensure round-the-clock activity in the building.
Another group of four-story building will house 780 beds in traditional doubles for a select group of freshman who participate in the invitation-only Bridge to Clemson University program. These students begin their first year academic experience at Tri-County Technical College before transferring to Clemson to begin their sophomore year.
This mixed use facility will include student housing, a residential dining center, bookstore, a new campus recreation center and retail spaces.
