University Housing

ENTER NOW for a chance to be named Room of the Year!

Pinterest-inspired pushpin boards. Creative storage solutions. Custom bedding and window coverings. Georgia-themed gaming spaces. We've seen all this and more in our annual Room of the Year contest but we want to see how you can top it!

Grand prizes will be awarded in three categories: Best Female Room, Best Male Room and Best Video Tour. Winners will be decided by online voting, with a limit of one vote per resident.

Here's the awesome part: Grand prize winners in each category get a generous gift basket and first pick of all available living spaces in the highly competitive 2015-2016 room sign-up campaign that begins in December. So whether you want a room with a view of Sanford Stadium in Rutherford Hall, the spacious suite life in Brown Hall or a sixth-floor space with soaring ceilings in Building 1516, you and your roomie will choose before everyone else!

You've worked hard to make your room a home for the coming year. So go ahead. Brag a little.

See our Room of the Year page for full contest details and how to enter.

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!
