Clementi station has an island platform configuration with two elevated East-West Line platforms. Half-height Platform screen doors are built at the platform edge for commuter safety, while modified Pro-Jet fans keep passengers cool. A basic flat roof shelters the platform level, similar to many earlier stations along the Western side of the East-West Line, and the station gets painted with a single base color, which is Blue for this station.
Expected train arrival times and dominant messages get shown on Passenger Information Systems, which are plasma display panels positioned at each platform. Tactile flooring aids the sight-impaired in getting from the platform to the station exits. The Platform level gets connected to the Ticket Concourse level below escalators, lifts, and staircases.
Faregates are located on both concourses and are used to collect fares and enable access to paid and unpaid portions of the station. On October 21, 2011, they upgraded from first-generation faregates to newer faregates. Additionally, at both the original and renovated exits, this station has one bidirectional wide-swinging gate for the advantage of passengers in wheelchairs, those carrying heavy objects, and those traveling with prams. The Passenger Service Centre (PSC), located at the western end of the concourse, provides top-up services for the MRT station. Only general ticketing machines are available at the eastern end of the concourse. Since September 1, 2017, cash top-ups are no longer accepted. The east concourse will open on August 21, 2015.
