Don't Just Attend Georgia... Live It!

Transfer and Graduate Students Deserve an On-Campus Experience, Too!

You may know about the first-year live-on requirement at UGA but we offer several housing options to upperclassmen and graduate students, as well! Only University Housing can offer the academic support and immersive living experience that result in proven higher GPAs, higher graduation rates and more student satisfaction. 

Upperclassmen and transfer students have several traditional-style halls available to them, including the newly renovated Brown Hall. Brown Hall consists of three floors of spacious, furnished suite-style rooms in the trendy Normaltown area of Athens. See what residents say about Brown Hall in our exclusive video.

Graduate students and students with families and/or spouses or domestic partners may live in Family and Graduate Housing, which offers on-campus one and two bedroom apartments. We even have roommate and semi-furnished options! Monthly rent includes power, water, trash, cable, high-speed Internet and laundry.

So what are you waiting for? Don't just attend Georgia... live it. Register now!

First-Years: Tell Us about Your First Look!

Submit photos and videos of your F1RST LOOK at UGA and be entered to win a #GODAWGS t-shirt and the grand prize of a welcome basket for your new home at UGA! Show us meeting or shopping with your future roommate, your first trip to the dining hall or your first photo by the Arch—we want to see your F1RST LOOK at your new Bulldog family.

Simply upload a photo or video to Instagram, Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #firstlookuga by August 18 (HINT: We’ll see your pictures more easily if you tag @UGAHousing in your posts!) At the end of the summer, our social media street team will select five entries and ask participants to share their stories on our Live it! UGA blog. A randomly selected grand prize winner will receive a generous welcome basket for their room courtesy of University Housing.

So what are you waiting for? show us your #firstlookuga!

Join us All Summer for #tbt

We know you’re going to miss your home away from home this summer (we’ll miss you too!) so we’ve come up with a genius #TBT (Throwback Thursday) contest to help pass the time.

On Thursdays this summer, share your favorite on-campus memories with University Housing on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for a chance to win some UGA swag. We’ll post #TBT images and ask you to tell us about your good times, then we’ll reward three commenters each week with cool Housing SWAG, including our newly designed #GODAWGS shirt!

Stay tuned - The fun starts on May 15!
