Though Clemson University anchors the town, there’s more to Clemson than textbooks and football. Clemson offers established housing and neighborhoods close to mountains and lakes in addition to the arts, culture, and amenities found in any classic college town.

Key Features

Clemson University: Go Tigers! Get ready to rock your orange and purple as you stroll the campus or cheer on your team at South Carolina’s second largest university. Though life in Clemson often revolves around the academic schedule, non-student residents of the town can also enjoy events like performances at the Brooks Center and games at Clemson Memorial Stadium.

Lake Life: Clemson cozies up to the shores of Lake Hartwell, which offers the perfect opportunity for water-based recreation. With 56,000 acres of water to explore, you’ll never run out of new fishing holes to try or refreshing places to take a dip. For even more lake fun, Lake Keowee is just 15 minutes away!

Wondering where to shop for the Tiger in your life? Mr. Knickerbocker is your downtown destination for all things Clemson University. To find your new favorites from hoodies to facemasks to holiday ornaments, just look for the jaunty golfer logo in his sporty Clemson color knickers.

If you appreciate flora more than football, you’ll love experiencing the South Carolina Botanical Garden on Clemson University’s campus. Take to the trails and meander through nearly 300 acres of stunning biodiversity. Don’t miss the camellias that started it all!
