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!

Stay On Campus for Summer

Summer school in Athens offers students the opportunity to focus on a difficult class, to slow down the pace and to experience some of the best Athens has to offer all year. Living on-campus means no sitting in traffic in a hot car, no outrageous power bills and plenty of opportunity to meet new people and make new friends.

An email with instructions will be sent to current residents on April 1, 2014 to complete an online sign-up form by no later than April 6, 2014.

Students not currently living on campus may register in The Dawg House.

Oglethorpe House will be open for residents living on campus for summer 2014. Students must be enrolled in at least one course per summer session to qualify for housing. Busbee, McWhorter and Rooker Halls will continue their 11.5 month contracts through summer 2014. Vandiver Hall in ECV will be closed for summer 2014.

Check out the schedule and rate chart; all summer school rent will be billed directly through the student accounts system, with payments due on the dates established by the Bursar’s Office.
