Parking: Typically, if it is an emergency, you can go to an office and get a parking pass that allows you to park anywhere. You can also go to parking meter slots. I think every 15 minutes cost $.25, but there's definitely a limit to how long you can stay. Also, parking services drive around all day up until like 7 p.m. trying to find people that are parked without authorization. There are typically successful. Within 30 minutes, if you are parked without authorization, you'll get a ticket. Fortunately, there is student parking. You just have to pay for a parking permit.

Parking: The parking lots are so far for students and the parking services give tickets for everything. The prices are way too high just for parking. More parking should be available to students and not just teachers.

3 College Sophomore

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.

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

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
