Those were hastily built pre-fab homes for all the married veterans returning from WWII


In the 60's there were small prefab married student homes..

They are small tin prefab houses that married students lived in... it was also the start of tailgating because all of them attended games and had backyard cookouts! My parents and aunts and uncles lived in them .

Chicken houses. They studied chickens, which is the reason we own them in football.


Looks like the original tin cans married student housing

They used to have these tiny metal 1-2 bedroom buildings around the stadium for married students. They were heated by individual oil burning stoves and would get so cold in winter there would be ice on the windows.

They had a few left on campus in the late 70's before they were sold off or torn down. I lived in one in 1980. They were run down, but better than living in a dorm.

We knew those as "prefabs" and yes they were for married couples. Had a cousin and her husband living in one at one time. The description about the winter was probably correct. I remember people putting lawn sprinklers on the roof to cool the structures down in the summer. Walls were pretty thin.

Gosh I'd forgotten about the water sprinkler for cooling. We were too poor to buy a sprinkler, hubby just laid the water hose on top. I think water was free with the $30 rent.


Married housing

They were brought in after WWII for married housing. They were removed for Littlejohn Coliseum.

Married student housing.
Small houses ("tiny houses"?)built for all the married students immediately after WWII, I believe.

They were there in 1962-6 and removed about the time of the original Littlejohn construction.

sure was a major landscape improvement for Clemson University. Wonder if the coots will try to copy us by flooding the Congaree? They do so want to copy Clemson.

I lived in one of these ww2 pre-fabs as a newlywed. It was on Jersey Ave behind the library. (Which was under construction) We were across from the P&A building rent was $30 per month. One day I went to the p&a to buy an ice cream cone and they offered me a part time job. I got paid $1.25 per hour which was minimum wage and took home free ice cream sundaes every evening.

And they didn't have far to go.

They were small houses (pads) for the homeless beatniks of the time. They were rent free as most beatniks were on welfare. They were affectionately known as stay free mini pads.
