Clemson University’strustees approvehousing capital plans

Clemson University’s board of trustees gave final approval to the plan and related revenue bond resolutions for a $116-million core campus development, which will replace some of Clemson’s oldest student facilities, including Johnstone residence hall, built in the 1950s, according to a statement by the university.

The core campus project also will include a new student-athlete academic enrichment center to be funded by athletics revenues and private gifts. This will allow the university to use the current 26,000-square-foot Vickery Hall for additional academic space purposes.

Also, the trustees approved revised plans and related revenue and state institution bond resolutions for a $212-million complex on the former Douthit Hills site.

The housing portion of the project will provide 980 beds for upper-class students and 750 beds for students in the Bridge to Clemson transfer program at Tri-County Technical College.

The project also will include a new facility for the 50,000 prospective students, parents and other guests who visit the campus annually.
