Humanities Hall -

Clemson’s new Humanities Hall is now fully functional and ready to welcome students back to campus. 

The brand-new facility includes a 250-seat lecture hall, 12 classrooms that range in size from 18 to 72 seats, a debate lab, eight collaboration spaces, four offices, two conference rooms and a new Pearce Center facility, totaling 2,633 square feet. 

The structure stands tall and is oriented to face the Tillman Hall clock tower, and windows provide an exquisite view from the third floor. 

The new “Humanities Hall has ‘Sage Glass’ technology on the west elevations that will tint as the sun begins to set. The open-air, natural light also allows the new build to have a more collaborative and inviting environment for students to learn and hang out in,” according to Edwin Medrano, the assistant superintendent of the project for Holder Construction. 

Renovations will continue on Daniel Hall next door until Fall 2023. Once Daniel Hall is fully completed, both buildings will be connected by a third-floor skywalk as a unique way to commute to class.
