  • Open House and Facilities Tour for Prospective Graduate Architecture Students (Clemson Campus)

    • The Architecture Graduate Programs host two open house sessions per year. One in the fall (late October or early November) for prospective graduate students and one in the spring (late March or early April) for prospective admitted and wait-listed applicants. Architecture open houses include presentations by faculty, question/answer opportunities about our graduate programs and tours of Lee Hall.

  • General Visitor Information: Parking and Wayfinding (Clemson Campus)

    • Lee Hall, home of the School of Architecture, is a complex of building and additions. On maps it is often notated as Rudolph E. Lee Gallery, which is an art gallery housed in Lee I. Lee I is the original building built in 1958; Lee II was added in the 1970s and 90s; and Lee III opened in 2012. Room numbers in Lee indicate which part of the building the room is located. For example, Lee 2-111 (the large auditorium) is Room 111 in Lee II. Click here to view maps of the interior of Lee Hall.

    • Public Parking around Lee Hall is limited, so please allow plenty of time to find a space before your scheduled appointment time. The closest public parking are metered spaces in the cul-de-sac on Fernow Street adjacent to the building. We encourage you to take the time prior to your visit to read the information on Clemson visitor parking. Those who have registered for a graduate open house will be provided a parking pass by the School of Architecture when they arrive for the open house session. Instructions will be provided on where parking is allowed with this pass.
