Visitor Parking

A visitor is a guest to Clemson University Campus who is not enrolled or employed by Clemson University in any manner. Visitors who bring cars to the Clemson University Campus must park their vehicles in accordance with the campus parking rules and regulations.


A visitor is not a faculty, staff, student, vendor, or contractor of Clemson University.


Parking and Transportation Services provides the following visitor parking options:


Visitors are encouraged to park at over 400 conveniently located metered Visitor parking spaces on campus without the need to obtain a permit. Metered parking is $1.00 per hour and multiple payment options include quarter, $1.00 bills, and credit and debit cards.

Metered Visitor spaces can be located by downloading the Parker app to find space availability in real-time or by checking our meter map. Parker is an app that will provide turn by turn directions to open visitor parking spaces on campus. The app will also tell you how many spaces are available so you don’t waste your time driving around looking for open spaces. Parker is available for iPhone in the App Store and for Android phones in the Google Play Store.

More information about locations and using the meters can be found on the Metered Parking Around Campus website.
