Dining Options

Details below pertain to the academic year....summer has a much more limited schedule. 

Eating lunch on campus? There are LOTS of options!  If you pack lunches from home, you are welcome to eat in our private lunchroom in Jordan Hall (equipped with microwave, sink, refrigerator and ice machine). Other options include:

On campus Dining Halls (see www.campusdish.com/en-US/CSSE/Clemson/Locations/ for complete menus and maps)

  • To expedite entry, have one person pay at the door for your entire group (not required, however). Visa and Mastercard as well as checks and cash are accepted.  
  • The current cost for lunch at the dining hall is $9.25 plus tax for a total of $9.90/person (subject to change...call 864-656-2449 or see http://www.campusdish.com/en-US/CSSE/Clemson to confirm).
  • The dining halls are a fun experience, but they will be crowded and busy! More than likely, you will not be able to sit together as a group. Plan accordingly (arrange a meeting time/place, etc. for your group to reconnect)
