Safety Measures

Please consider the following safety information:

College is a time for new adventures and personal growth. While doing these things, safety must remain a consideration. Whether taking the step to lock your door, knowing who you’re spending time with or knowing how to access emergency services, your safety is essential to your well-being. Make sure to save important telephone numbers in your phone, including your roommate, close friends, emergency contacts, the local police department and Clemson University Police Department’s non-emergency telephone number (864-656-2222).

City Codes

Cities and municipalities have codes or guidelines that are routinely enforced. You may find yourself in trouble with local municipalities if these codes are broken. Be sure to educate yourself on what is expected from renters, roommates, and even home owners.

Below are links to local municipalities. Contact the office for the city or municipality that you live in to find codes specific to you.

Party Smart

The safety and well-being of students is a top priority for the City of Clemson and Clemson University. Alcohol abuse and the use of other drugs is a well-recognized threat to the health, safety and academic success of college students everywhere. Clemson University, in partnership with the community, works to ensure numerous resources and educational opportunities regarding alcohol and other drugs are available to students.
