Clemson University recently completed its Core Campus Housing and Dining Precinct improvements. Built on the site of the former Johnstone Resident Hall, the residential facilities were completed in August 2016 and the dining facilities in September 2016. All facilities were made available to students for the fall session of 2016. Building construction began in March 2015. The estimated construction cost was $83,000,000.
At the north end of the site is the Calhoun Honors College, made up of two seven-story residence halls, with academic assembly and administrative space on the first floor. To the south, a 265-bed residence hall provides double occupancy rooms with common and private baths.
The redesigned Harcombe Dining Hall is comprised of three levels and offers extended hours, coffee and food chains, a convenience store, a delicatessen, and a grill.
The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company led the general construction. Stevens & Wilkinson provided site planning and architectural, interior, and engineering design.
