Congrats! on your admit to Clemson Unversity. Amonst all the other stress of admission process, moving and farewells, we know housing is on your mind too. Here is a small review from my end to help you out a bit in choosing your accomodations.
Located on College Avenue, this apartment complex is a straight 1.5 km from Cooper Library. Do not think any other apartment comes closer to the bus stop which is literally 45 seconds from the farthest door.
806 and 807 College Avenue aka Lemans Apartments
The apartments are exactly the same but are now managed by different property managers
806 College Ave: email@example.com
807 College Avenue: www.universitycottages.com Cell: 8647840059
Laundry is not in house and is located in a common room for all apartments @ 3-4$ a load for wash and dry.
Lease Term: 12 Months
Price and Floor Plan:
All apartments are 2-bedroom, 1 bathroom and are fully furnished
600$-$750 a month / 2 bed + $100 electricity (if you use lavishly)
$60 Water + $60 for Internet per month
The apartment is walking distance to, Walgreens, Post office, Starbucks (All less than 500m) and university if you are open to walking 1.5 km (15 mins).
Pros: lots of space, big kitchen, comfortable house.
Cons: Electricity bills are high in winter (3 months a year) but can be reduced by using a space heater over the central heating, I’ve had as low as $30 a month as well.
Some of the apartments are not that great but they have now they have done mass refurbishing. If you can get in touch with a senior to look over the place before you sign the lease, that would be ideal. Just don’t bug too many people for this. I personally really like my apartment and find it a very nice place to be.
You will never actually meet the landlord but things have run smoothly for a year and I have extended the lease for another year. This is at 806 college avenue.
Overall experience is that it’s a nice peaceful place, less roommates makes things easier in household chores, the rooms and beds are bigger than any other housing where most Indians stay and is perfect place if you like to work with very less interference and disturbance.
The only downside of living in these apartments is the cost, it is almost 100-150$ higher than the 4-bedroom apartments per month, but if that’s the trade you are willing to make for some peace then its worth it.
Wishing you the Best from my end. Go Tigers!
