Dr. Sarah Winslow, Honors Faculty-in-Residence, meets with some residents in her office, located in Holmes Hall.
A mix of freshman through senior Honors students live in the Honors Living-Learning Community, located in Holmes and McCabe Halls. Our Honors LLC is nationally recognized and home to the Honors Academic Activities Center.
This LLC is centrally located on campus across from the historic Calhoun Mansion, and a one-minute walk from Clemson Memorial Stadium. It is a coeducational facility that accommodates approximately 280 students. The living quarters are fully carpeted and are arranged in two-room suites with adjoining baths. Holmes has its own laundry facilities, two kitchens, two study rooms. The lower level of Holmes Hall is also home to the Honors Academic Activities Center, the hub for the ENTIRE Honors student community, where meeting, lounge, and classroom space are accessible 24/7.
Entering Honors freshmen will receive housing information from the University Housing office in the spring after admission. Room assignments in the Honors LLC Hall are made in the summer 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, roommate and suitemates requests may be granted but only if all occupants of a room 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 Holmes 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, including Honors housing and access to the Honors Center. Freshmen residents of Holmes Hall whose first semester GPR is below 2.80 may be reassigned to other campus housing effective the next semester.
