3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I was an RA for two years and have lived in campus housing for three years. The housing on campus is pretty much what you would expect for a college dorm-style living atmosphere. The rooms are not extravagant but they are well situated in regard to classes and dining halls. There are also a lot of new residential buildings being built around campus, so the quality is going up in the next few years.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I liked the peace of mind that i had in my dorm room.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus was an extremely new experience from me as I had never lived away from home for that long of a period. The social atmosphere between dorm mates was really good and refreshing as a way to hang out and communicate with others that are in the same program. Also its worth to mention that the dorm I was residing in was focused in Engineering called RiSE for incoming freshmen. To me, it was an excellent way to place aspiring engineers together so they would develop early on to what it would be working in the field. The rooms, hallways, bathrooms were all very clean, though the toilet would have a let's say 75% chance of not being flushed if you walked in there. Having to share a communal bathroom with one side of the floor is probably the greatest downside of living that particular dorm and was something I had to adapt too. This time around however, I'll be to take residence in a patio home styled dorm with two seperate rooms and one bathroom with the dorm being limited to only 2 residents. Wayyyy better option this time around except for my classes being a few minutes further away.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: It was a wonderful experience and it was very convenient. However, it was expensive.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I loved where I lived, simply because it was close to my classes and the social atmosphere was arguably the best on campus. But the rooms were old, small, and outdated for how much I pay a year to go to this school in my opinion.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The best dorms for freshmen are the high-rises or the Honors dorm, Holmes. If you must settle for less, the Shoeboxes are not a bad way to go. Students recommend avoiding Johnstone, but those who have lived there say it was a "bonding experience" due to the living conditions they all had to face.

The dorms at Clemson range from outdated to top of the line. A lot of construction has taken place in recent years to improve student living conditions, and if you can't find a dorm that feels like home after your first year, there are many off-campus housing options for you to choose from. If nothing else, the dorm experience will allow you to meet people with whom you will always share a common bond-be it good or bad.
