Bringing A Pet To Clemson Lofts

One of the advantages of Clemson Lofts is that we are a pet-friendly solution to student housing. When bringing a pet to college, there are some important things to consider.


Many students underestimate how busy they will be. Pets that require a lot of attention might not be the best idea for some students. If you bring a pet, make sure that you can realistically give it the love and attention needed.


Bringing a pet to Clemson requires a $395 deposit and an additional $45 per month in rent. This is to cover the costs of maintenance and repairs that can come from pets occupying our units.

Weight Limits

We love big dogs and other large pets, but student housing is not set up to be appropriate for these type of pets. Pets that are 35 lbs and under are welcome, and we ask that no pet be less than six months old. College life can make house training difficult, so it is important that pets be used to living in apartment and townhouse style living arrangements.

Socializing Your Pet

Pets that enjoy some social interaction do best in our type of student housing. Taking your dog for a walk around the area is a great way to get them used to being around a lot of other people and will discourage them from barking every time they see someone.

Roommate Approval

Since Clemson Lofts are often shared by several roommates, you need to make sure that all of them are ok with your pet before your pet can be added to your lease. This helps ensure that everyone has a more pleasant experience at Clemson Lofts.


Pets will be given a Clemson Lofts ID tag. This will help if your pet gets loose and we will know that the pet is actually from Clemson Lofts. Failure to wear a tag can have consequences such as other residents of Clemson apartments not being able to return your pet to you ASAP.

Making The Choice

We know that pets are an important part of your life and the Clemson student housing experience. If there is anything we can do to help you with your move or if you have any questions or concerns about pets at Clemson Lofts, contact us at any time, and we will help!
