Parking: They at least provide buses to transport you around campus, but of course that's a fee included in your tuition, one you can't reject even if you don't end up using the buses.

Parking: The parking is great at Clemson. If you have to park far away there are bus routes and they come by every 7 minutes and will take you to your class.

1 College Freshman

Parking: Parking is the one thing that sucks, they are constantly giving out tickets and towing cars for football other than that no complaints

3 College Sophomore

Parking: If you are living on campus, you really don't need a car

1 College Freshman

Parking: Parking is miserable here, and there is a confusing system in place on where you can and can't park. The school makes you move on game weekends and people are getting ticketed and towed all the time.

Students love to complain about the parking situation at Clemson. With so many students living off campus,
Clemson has a large commuter population and nowhere to park on-campus. Everyone agrees that driving to campus is
a pain because you might end up walking even further than you drove.

Fortunately, everything at Clemson is within short walking distance from anywhere on campus. Although driving to campus is terribly inconvenient, the lack of cars on campus makes the campus that much more enjoyable to walk.
