Construction on the long-awaited Douthit Hills project begins Dec. 15. To accommodate construction, some roads in that area will close and more than 300 parking spaces along South Palmetto Boulevard and Daniel Drive will be relocated to other areas of Clemson’s main campus.

What’s going to change for faculty and staff

A total of 173 employee (green) spaces near the Clemson House will be moved to Williamson Road, the P3 (West End Zone) lot and the Avenue of Champions. Faculty and staff can also park in the new (E21-formerly gravel) lot on Cherry Road at Perimeter Road. Approximately 108 existing spaces will remain intact. Those who regularly park near the Clemson House will have a number of options available including temporary parking, shuttle services, and Tiger Transit.

What’s going to change for students

More than 150 existing students spaces will remain available, but 138 student (purple) spaces near the Clemson House will be relocated to the R3 resident-student lot located off of Centennial Blvd and Perimeter Road. Shuttle service for students who regularly park near the Clemson House will be offered to the relocated spaces using Clemson Area Transit’s Purple Route and Tiger Transit.

Building for the future

While the three-year construction project will result in some detours and closures, officials say that Douthit Hills, once completed, will feature more than 1,100 onsite parking spaces, more than 600 parking spaces located at a satellite lot, more than 1,700 new student beds, a new recreation facility, a campus bookstore, two retail dining locations, and a 450-seat residential dining hall.
