Life on Campus

When you live on campus, the entire campus is your home away from home.  The best part is, you don’t have to leave your Clemson Home to experience some of the best things Clemson University has to offer.

Your backyard is where the Tigers play. Whether it’s Death Valley, Littlejohn Coliseum, Doug Kingsmore Stadium or the Walker Golf Course, there’s always something exciting going on in your backyard.

Our Living-Learning Communities enhance your college experience by promoting academic success in your residential area. These programs provide experiences that extend from the classroom to the surrounding community.

Your safety is our #1 priority. All of Housing’s multilevel buildings are equipped with sprinklers and life safety systems. The University has its own police force on duty 24 hours, seven days a week and its own fire department and EMS service.

Clemson has everything you need for academic success. When it’s time to study, your personal library awaits and the Academic Success Center is there to meet all your academic needs. And your GPA is in good hands – a recent study shows that Clemson students living on campus have significantly higher GPAs than students who live off campus.

The benefits of living on campus are abundant! In addition, living on campus allows you the enjoyment of living near friends, convenient access to the dining halls, sporting events, library and campus organizations, as well as a staff available to ensure your campus experience is amazing.

University Housing is pleased to offer an array of living options that will suit a variety of preferences, making life on campus a convenient and comfortable option while being centrally located.

Choosing a place to live depends on your student classification, what type of amenities are important to you, and how many people you want to live with! First-year students should search the different types of residence halls, noting the location on campus of each hall and the type of space. Sophomore and Upperclass students may choose from suite and apartment style living options.
