E-21 is adjacent to the Forestry and Environmental Conservation building.

To accommodate the loss of parking following the closure of lot E-21, Clemson Parking and Transportation Services converted commuter to employee parking spots in the C-11 parking lot adjacent to the Brooks Center for Performing Arts.

Following the start of the construction of the Forestry and Environmental Conservation Building, parking spots in surrounding areas will be moved around to accommodate the closing of lot E-21.

The closure of lot E-21 will result in the loss of 159 employee spots and 19 reserved spaces for university vehicles. To replace these losses, 150 employee spaces will be added to lot C-11, along with four electric vehicle spots and 10 reserved parking spaces.

The University closed the E-21 lot on Feb. 19 as it prepared to begin construction on the new Forestry and Environmental Conservation Building. The new Forestry and Environmental Conservation Building, expected to be completed in the spring of 2026, is set to replace Lehotsky Hall.

Upon its completion, the building will provide university students, staff and researchers with classrooms, offices, laboratories, support areas and an outdoor lab. The building is being constructed due to the escalating challenges posed by environmental and natural resources facing our world today. The building will accommodate trained professionals to address these problems and students to learn in a growing environment.

A transit service providing routes to the Brooks Center will be available for vehicles redirected to lot C-14 amidst the closure of E-21. The transit will travel to and from the Brooks Center every 15 minutes.

Another alternative for students affected by this closure is the East Park-N-Ride commuter lots, P-7 and P-8.
