What Do I Do If It’s Too Hot In My Room When I Move In?

We appreciate your patience and for understanding that buildings may seem hot on Move-In Weekend. All doors are open making it difficult to regulate the air flow. It may take 48 to 72 hours for the building to regain its normal temperature.

During this time: 

  • Don’t open the windows.
  • Close your door to keep the cool air in.
  • Don’t adjust your thermostat below 72/74 degrees.
  • If the room doesn’t have a thermostat, place the fan coil cooling on medium and fan speed on medium or low.
  • If you have an air conditioner or gas pack don’t turn the thermostat all the way down. This will make the unit freeze up, and it will have to defrost before it starts cooling again.
  • A fan will help until the building recovers from all doors being open.

Can I mail items to the University ahead of my move in?

Information about your P.O. Box assignment will be sent to your Clemson University email account around the first week of August. Please do not ship anything until you receive your P.O. Box assignment.

If you need to ship items in advance to your P.O. Box, send them to:

Student’s First and Last Name

2275 University Station

DH or SM (Box Number)

Clemson, SC 29632

DH is used in front of the box number for Douthit Hills residents and SM is used for everyone else.

Student Mail Services will begin accepting packages prior to move-in weekend for you to retrieve your items. Be mindful of your estimated delivery date and your move-in date, as packages should be picked up promptly upon receiving your notification email. Also consider how you will transport belongings back to your residence after picking them up. Visit Student Mail Services’ guide to mail and package pickup for more information.

Where can I buy linens and other supplies?

Twin XL bedding is required for all on-campus housing, except Douthit Hills West and Thornhill Village (which offer full-size beds)

OCM is a wonderful place to find all your campus essentials, selling the Twin XL sheets, as well as Clemson gifts, organization accessories, care packages, decor, and more! Purchasing your college supplies from OCM allows you to get your shopping done in one place while also supporting the Clemson Residence Hall Association!

Can I arrive early for move in?
