At Clemson University, we encourage new commercial activities and partnerships on campus that are mutually beneficial, innovative collaborations between the university and external partners.

All commercial engagement on campus must be approved by the University before a commercial activity can take place. If you do not have an existing agreement that allows for commercial activation on campus, please review the University Facility Use Policy, and submit a Sales and Solicitation Form, which is Appendix C of that policy. This will be reviewed by the Associate Director of Client Services, and if deemed a commercial activity, will be referred to the Divisional Sponsorship Coordinator for review.


Please note, no fronting by companies will be allowed, and all corporate brand ambassadors must be approved before coming on campus. 


Examples of activities that need approvals:

Commercial sales: Any sales, solicitations, advertising or other commercial activity whose purpose is to inform, induce or encourage individuals or groups to purchase, rent, lease, or use (or not purchase, rent, lease, or use) any goods or services or to participate in some commercial enterprise.

Sponsorships: Collaborate agreement between a student affairs department and a commercial enterprise in managing and financing an event or activity in which the sponsor(s) receives acknowledgement for providing financial support, including those organizations who use university assets.


Thank you in advance for your cooperation as we preserve the Clemson Experience for our students, staff and faculty.
