Clemson Home is committed to establishing safety precautions within residential areas through the following measures:
Residents should follow the “Guest and Visitation” policy stated in Housing Rules & Regulations. A resident signed this document when they completed their Housing Contract. A current year copy can be found on our website under the “Contracts and Rates” tab. Overnight guests will not be allowed this year.
Students will be provided with guidance through Redfern Health Center on the steps they will need to take in order to return to in-person classes. Several locations have already been identified both on and off-campus for isolation and quarantine of students who may be symptomatic. Families should attend to all regional and local travel guidance that could prohibit travel from their home back to campus should they decide to go there while self-isolating.
Students will be required to be tested prior to move-in. Full information on the policy, requirements, and process is available in the University’s Healthy Clemson FAQs page and additional information can be found at the full Healthy Clemson: United as Tigers site.
Meal plans will be active once you check-in. Your TigerOne card will be used for access to the dining halls, as well as paying for food on campus with your Paw Points. Specific dining location hours will be available on the Dining website. Our all-you care to eat dining halls will be open and serving a full complement of meal choices. Students will have the option to sit down in the dining hall and eat, or to choose to get a grab-n-go meal. Both are hot options that meet all nutritional needs, including those of students with food allergies or other special requirements. More information can be found on the Campus Dish Website.
