(Very Important Parents)

Planning on seeing The Pier for yourself, or maybe looking for a place to stay while visiting your student? The Abernathy, a stylish boutique hotel near Memorial Stadium, offers wonderful accommodations and a package perfect for any visit. Proud Clemson parents can enjoy 15% OFF accommodations, a 20% discount at Tiger Sports Shop and much more. With the money you save, you can surprise your scholar with cleaning supplies or an extra roll of quarters for laundry.


The Pier provides on-site maintenance to handle any necessary repairs and service, so your student can focus on their studies. Staff is always on hand to address questions and concerns quickly and efficiently.


Student bedrooms are private havens, with enough space for a desk and well-insulated from distraction. Residents also have access to the clubhouse study lounge where students can read in a quiet, peaceful atmosphere.


Leases are maintained individually, so each student is responsible for their own bedroom, bath and utilities within the cottage. Rest assured your student will not be affected by anyone else’s actions within their house.


The Pier is home to an open, inviting community of peers. Being a student-only residency means that everyone in the community is committed to pursuing their education. Your student will be free to make new friends with similar interests and experiences in a supportive and engaging atmosphere.


The Pier is a gated apartment and cottage community where safety is a priority. Professional and attentive staff at The Pier are here to provide the best experience for your student. The on-site property manager can handle any day-to-day concerns that may arise and will work with you and your student to resolve potential issues. We also provide on-site security patrolling the community through extended weekend nights.


The Pier is 2.5 miles from campus, making it an easy drive or a quick trip away. The CAT bus runs round-trip from Clemson to The Pier, making the trip to campus safe, free from parking hassles, and easy on a student budget. There is also a night shuttle that runs to and from downtown Clemson on weekends.
