What Changed While You Were Away

Welcome back to campus! While everyone was away, we did not sit idle. Here is a summary of some of the big changes that have occurred over the last year:

E-27 Parking Lot

The E-27 gravel parking lot, located near Douthit Hills and the Powers Building, has been paved and expanded to improve the parking experience in this area. 76 employee parking spaces have been added in this location.

Holy Trinity Church (one way road near Gentry Hall)

30 parking spaces have been added to the parking inventory on the one-way road in front of Holy Trinity Church and Gentry Hall. These spaces are striped as unrestricted employee green spaces.

E-3 Parking Lot

The E-3 parking lot, located behind Lee III, has been expanded. This has resulted in 70 employee spaces.

E-15 (East Library) Parking Lot

The Daniel Hall expansion project has consumed a majority of the E-15 parking lot. Five accessible parking spaces and five golf cart spaces remain in this lot. Additional accessible parking spaces have been temporarily added to the west side of the Library and along McMillan Rd to make up for the reduction in spaces on the east side.

E-24 (Pecan Grove) Parking Lot

Due to erosion occurring with the lot, 24 parking spaces have been removed to improve the vehicle flow and stormwater management within the lot.

Visitors Center has moved to Daniel Drive

The Visitors Center has moved from the Strom Thurmond Institute to the Alumni Center on Daniel Drive. Reserved spaces have been added along Daniel Drive to support their operation. Towing is enforced from these spaces.

As you are returning to campus, please keep in mind some of these helpful tips:

  1. A parking permit is required to park on campus. These are purchased online at clemson.edu/parking under “Manage My Account”. Be sure to check your license plate information as it is tied to your permit.
  2. Payment is required at all parking meters from 7 AM – 10 PM seven days a week by all users. Note that some meters are Visitor Only and may not be used by CU permit holders.
  3. Alternative transportation options are available across campus including:
    • Clemson Carpool – discounted parking permit and dedicated parking spaces available for groups of two or more people who share a similar schedule 4 days a week. Groups of 3 or more get free parking!
    • Park-N-Ride Parking Option – reduced cost parking option to park in P-5/P-7 on the East and P-6 on the West and ride a shuttle in.
