Whether you’re planning a road trip to the beach, napping for a week on your family’s couch, or sticking around town, we hope you find a little bit of time for rest and relaxation.

Exam Week Hours & Study Spaces

It’s getting close to exam week at Clemson and the students are getting quieter and more caffeinated. The only thing more sought after than coffee and snacks are seats. So, here’s a roundup of study spaces and the hours they’re available.

Cooper Library will be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week throughout the week of exams. It won’t close until 8:00pm on Friday, December 15. In addition to the 15 study rooms and numerous tables and chairs the library already has, on Friday, December 8 we’re opening up our 5 classrooms (Room 204, Room 309, Room 416–Brown Room, Room 406a–GIS classroom and Room 412–GIS Lab) for even more seats for studying. These rooms will be open 24 hours a day unless otherwise noted.

The Academic Success Center building is open from 7:30am until 2:00am daily during exam week. They will close at 2:00am on Friday, December 15 and reopen at 7:30am that same day. ASC will close after the last scheduled final exam in the building has concluded.

Hours for the Watt Family Innovation Center are 7:30am until midnight, Monday through Thursday. Friday hours are 7:30am until 7:00pm.

We even found some study space off campus. The Clemson Central Library will be open until midnight for anyone with a valid Clemson ID, December 10-14. They have free coffee and snacks or students can bring their own.

Good luck with exams!
