General Info

The complex largely houses Clemson undergrads, though there are a significant number of non-students there as well. It is relatively new (construction completed around 2002 on the first phase; some buildings were completed summer 2004) and features generic amenities: there is a tiny weight room and a 4 ft. deep pool that's very popular during summer months. The area is relatively calm and well-kept; parties occur, but generally if you want your peace and quiet it's not hard to find. There have been reports of excess noise in some of the buildings, specifically those closer to the entrance or downstairs units under a person who likes to walk around a lot. Because the buildings are new, they are up to newer building and fire codes. Due to the moist location next to the creek, there is a somewhat higher level of mold in some units.

Rent is toward the higher end of what's availible in Clemson. There are single and two bedroom, two bath units availiable. Each has a similar floorplan, and all units have their own washer and dryer, but that's the extent of the furnishings that are provided. Sewer is a flat fee per month: $7 for 1-bedroom apartments, $12 for 2-bedrooms. Water is extra and can easily run $25/month or more, thanks to the recent Clemson city water rate increase. The water meters break from time to time, however, so you might get a few months with a flat water fee. Cable TV and internet is provided by Family View, and they have had serious issues in the past with latency and quality of Internet service (cable TV service costs about $37, a lot less than Northland). Bellsouth handles telephone and offers DSL, though many residents forgo landlines altogether. However, cell phones reception is awful in practically all units. There is a distinct lack of any cell towers nearby. The result is residents spend a lot of quality time outside in the parking lot talking on the phone.

Heritage at Riverwood is a good choice if you're looking for a place well off campus that is modern, clean and comparatively quiet. CAT bus service is not available at this complex, but the drive to campus takes about 10 minutes most mornings.
