Every university knows the value of on-campus amenities. With more and more people attending college each year, it’s more important now than ever before to have the space and necessities that those future students will need. Clemson University realized this when, in 2015, they had to turn away 850 students who wanted to live on campus.
In order to accommodate the rising number of incoming students, Clemson University went to work on a brand new, on-campus apartment complex named Douthit Hills.
The entire complex contains seven residential buildings. These feature studio, two- and four-bedroom apartments that contain amenities such as oversized windows, courtyards, and landscaped walkways. Three of the seven buildings are reserved for first year students; the rest, meanwhile, are for upperclassmen who want to remain a part of campus life throughout their four years.
And indeed, having ample on-campus residential space is good for both the university and the surrounding community. Living on campus helps students remain involved in campus affairs, while also reducing town traffic and campus parking issues.
Douthit Hills also provides the necessary amenities for a successful college career. It has ample seating areas for group and solo work, as well as lobby lounges and community kitchens to let students blow off some steam.
At Construction Protection Systems, we’re proud to have had the opportunity to play a part, however small, in the construction of Douthit Hills. Stay tuned for more updates from the makers of 1-2-3 Door Shield™—the original, reusable door protection system.
