n an effort to relocate many student center services to the center of campus growth, the planners of Clemson University commissioned the design of the Hendrix Student Center
in 1992. The Student Center is located on a site in the east campus, near the high-rise dormitory complex, dining hall, health center and academic learning center. The Student Center site underwent radical road and utility route changes to improve the flow of vehicles and pedestrians on the east side of campus, and to create a site large enough to comfortably accommodate the 108,000 sq ft structure.
The Student Center houses a campus book store, convenience store, food court, student lounge, coffee bar, ball room and conference meeting rooms, University Union administrative offices, a multicultural affairs suite, career and media office suite.
