Clemson University unveiled its new Core Campus complex on Thursday.

The 260,000 square foot building complex includes student housing, retail and residential dining, and a new home for the Calhoun Honors College, according to a news release.

Officials said 400 honors students will live in suite-style rooms and enjoy public spaces, including a lounge, study rooms, a library, classrooms, and more.

The complex will also house 300 first-year students in traditional rooms with a new bathroom style.

At the front of the property a new pedestrian “main street” will connect Fort Hill Street with the Quad archway entrance at Norris Hall. Outdoor dining space combines with indoor options to create a multitude of options for the Clemson community to connect.

The complex will feature 78,000 square feet of dining facilities to replace the 61-year-old Harcombe Dining Hall, which is currently the University’s main dining facility.

Officials said the following national brands will be featured in the dining hall

  • Raising Cane’s
  • Starbucks
  • Twisted Taco
  • Which Wich

The dining facilities will also include a convenience store.

Construction on the $90,000,000 Core Campus project began in July 2014 and is expected to be completed later this month.
