How Does Priority for Housing Work?
The size of your roommate group determines your sign-up priority. Groups of four receive the highest level of sign-up priority, followed by groups of three, then groups of two and finally singles. Time slots are randomly assigned to each student. The student with the earliest time slot should complete room selection for the group.
How will I know when I can select my housing?
You will receive an email with a timeslot. If you have chosen to be part of a roommate group, you will need to compare your timeslots. The roommate with the earliest time will need to select for the whole group. If you are in a group of 3 or 4, be sure that you have discussed with your roommates how the group will be split into the rooms in the suite. If there are no spaces available for your group size, you may need to split up and one person from each room or suite will need to select.
What if I don’t know who I want my roommate to be?
Don’t worry! The Clemson Home Portal has a roommate matching option, so you will be able to create a profile, answer the lifestyle questions, and search for other students who may be a good fit as a roommate.
Do I have to live on-campus and purchase a meal plan?
No. Transfer students are not required to live on campus. Housing is only required for first year and Bridge students.
Is housing guaranteed for me?
Housing is guaranteed and required only for first year and Bridge to Clemson students. On campus housing is prioritized for new-to campus students with the goal of supporting them during their transition and ensuring their engagement and success during that critical first year. Continuing and transfer students are offered housing as available.
How can I cancel my contract?
- You may cancel your contract at any time prior to Room Selection by emailing Clemson Home at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- If you have selected a space, but it has not yet been 72 hours since you got your space, you may cancel your contract through the housing portal.
- If it has been more than 72 hours since you got your space, the contract is legally binding. You would need to file an appeal to request a cancellation based on extenuating circumstances. If you withdraw from the University, you will be able to fill out a school-related cancellation request in the Clemson Home Portal.
