In topology, a set which is both open and closed is often called "clopen." Is there a commonly used term for sets which are neither open nor closed?

No there isn't. The reason that there is an extra name for clopen sets is that they are very useful and natural to consider, for example in the context of questions concerning connectivity. This does not seem to be the case for non-open non-closed sets.
