Off-Campus Housing: Great prices for nice houses, the pools are great and neighborhood communities are great options for those who have pets. Living downtown is hard to obtain but if you do there's no better way to do off-campus housing.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The housing options are great, but there is a vast amount of competition for off-campus housing.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I love living off-campus! You can find apartments within walking distance from campus or just a quick drive. The cost varies, but overall it is pretty affordable. Clemson has a housing fair every year where you can find out about all of the options. Most places have pools and other great amenities.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are lots of different locations to live off-campus that can be very close to campus, while others can be around ten minutes away. Parking is usually not a problem and many places offer special amenities, such as a pool, tanning beds, computer lab, printing, washers/dryers, sports facilities, and gyms. Nice places to live include Campus View, Crawford, Aspen Heights, and The Pier. The cost of living off-campus can be very expensive if you have more roommates and if you live closer to campus.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students find themselves ready to make the move off campus by their junior and senior years. After dealing with RAs and small living quarters, students agree that off-campus apartments are a great alternative. Most seem to think that a lot of the apartments are close enough to campus that living off campus does not inconvenience them.

Off-campus housing is popular and convenient, and campus transportation runs to or near all apartment complexes in the area. Some apartments are even within short walking distance of campus. When deciding where to live during your time at Clemson, you should definitely consider some of the off-campus housing options available.
