Re-Imagined Core Campus

Following Clemson’s 2002 Core Campus Housing Precinct Study, the university decided to replace three major buildings in the middle of its Core Campus. By re-imaging the look, feel, and use of the University’s Core Campus, the new housing development will address the university’s need to create a forward-thinking and innovative mixed-use center for students, faculty, and staff.

New Spaces

Initial programming outlined new and replacement space within the Core Campus, which will include a new University Union, three residence halls, a new campus post office, residential and retail dining areas, and small, strategic, doses of academic space.

Multi-Party Effort

The design team includes, SSOE, VMDO Architects, and Sasaki Associates. The project has achieved a LEED Silver rating from the U.S. Green Building Council.

The Clemson University Core Campus Precinct is a three building residence hall with 179,000 SF of living space, 76,000 SF of retail and dining, and 5,000 SF of academic space.
