There's something in these hills.

Clemson University is located in the scenic northwestern corner of South Carolina, in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The campus borders the 57,000-acre Lake Hartwell. Clemson is a 3-hour drive from the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, five hours from the Atlantic coast beaches, and approximately three hours from Atlanta, GA, and Charlotte, NC. Clemson is 12 miles from Interstate 85 and 45 miles southwest of the Greenville-Spartanburg airport.

A visit to Clemson should begin with a visit to the Visitors Center. Directions to Clemson, South Carolina, and to the Visitors Center may be found on the Visitors Center website. There you can also learn more about the university and surrounding area and schedule a campus tour or a tour of the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences.

The ECE Department is located in Riggs Hall and the Fluor Daniel Engineering Innovation Building. Directions to these buildings may be found on the Clemson University map.
