Lost and Found

The Police Department acts as a central site for lost items. To report a lost or found item call 864-656-5265 or come by the Police Station between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Tiger Transit

Safe rides are provided via Tiger Transit to university students, faculty, staff and visitors between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. to and from any campus location. The Student Patrol provides the support for this service, with police officers supplementing this program during peak times and early morning hours. To request Tiger Transit call 864-656-3333. During peak traffic times surrounding home football games this service may not be available.

Tiger Transit is very popular and is expected to be used 40,000 times each year. In order to maintain timely service we ask your help with this service by doing the following:

  • Drop off friends, luggage and groceries at the residence hall before parking. If each car requesting a ride only has one or two occupants and they are not carrying bulky items a larger number of calls for service can be handled by each vehicle and the wait time to get a ride is more easily controlled.
  • Call when you get to the parking lot. Calling ahead sometimes causes confusion if the van arrives before you do.
  • Let us know if you choose alternate transportation (CAT bus) after you initially call Tiger Transit. This will reduce wait times for others while the van is searching for someone who is no longer present.
  • Keep your doors locked and keep your headlights on until the transit vehicle arrives.


For members of the Clemson University community who need fingerprints for prospective employers, security clearances and bar applications, the CU Police Department offers fingerprinting services during the following times:

  • Monday-Friday 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Please call 864-656-2222 prior to coming to CUPD headquarters at Centennial Blvd. to ensure that someone is available to help you. The cost of the service is free for students.

Applicants must present a picture ID (license or passport) in addition to their University ID. All fingerprint cards should be printed in black ink. Fingerprint cards are usually provided by the requesting authority. But, the CUPD does have additional cards available upon request.
