Calhoun Honors College

The Honors Living-Learning Community

A mix of freshman through senior Honors students live in the Honors Living-Learning Community, which will move from its current Holmes Hall space and expand its scope to become Clemson’s first Residential College located in the new Core Campus facility beginning August 2016. 


In this new Residential College, Honors students will live on-site in Suite-style rooms and will enjoy new public community spaces that include central lounge space, study rooms, a library space, a Grand Hall and two classroom spaces.
In addition, there will be a Faculty-in-Residence who will help plan and implement educational, recreational, social and cultural programs while serving as a role model, mentor, adviser, teacher, and leader in the residential community. New Administrative space in the facility will house all Honors office staff.


Getting In

Entering Honors freshmen will receive housing information from the University Housing office in the spring after admission. Students must complete their Housing and Dining Sign-Up by the deadline in mid-May in order to select a room in the Honors LLC. Room selections in the Honors LLC are completed in mid-late May and are based on the date of application for general undergraduate admission to Clemson University.

For continuing students as well as entering freshmen who desire Honors housing, you will have the option of selecting a specific roommate and suitemates as long as those students are members in good standing of the Honors College and space is available. Transfer students and Clemson students who join Calhoun Honors College after the first semester of their freshman year may have to participate academically in the program for at least one semester before becoming eligible for Honors housing.

Honors students whose cumulative GPR falls below 3.40 and are placed on Honors probation may remain in the Honors LLC for the remainder of the probationary semester. If at the end of the probationary semester, whether fall or spring, the cumulative GPR remains below 3.40, the student will lose all privileges of membership in the program, which may include Honors housing and access to the Honors Center space in Core Campus. Freshmen residents of the Honors LLC whose first semester GPR is below 2.80 may be reassigned to other campus housing effective the next semester.
