Re-imagined Core Campus

Following the 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, Stevens & Wilkinson, 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 square-feet of living space, 76,000 square-feet of retail and dining, and 5,000 square-feet of academic space.
