Clemson House

Perhaps the most unusual of Clemson’s residence halls is the multipurpose Clemson House. Space for approximately 400 first-year students is available, and men and women are housed in separate rooms and efficiency units on each floor.

Originally built as a hotel, the building has a variety of room designs including rooms and efficiency units that accommodate two, three or four students.

None of the living options in the Clemson House have a private bedroom. The space adjacent to the bathroom in the unit is a closet/dressing area.

Students participating in the Civics and Service House, one of Clemson’s Living-Learning Communities, are housed on the second floor, and first-year students in the Health, Education and Human Development (HEHD) and Wellness Living-Learning Communities live on the seventh floor.

  • Each unit has a private bath with a tub/shower combination.
