Hunker Down with Housing

Hairy Dawg at Hunker Down with Housing


Each year the University of Georgia community welcomes more than 7,000 new students into the many residence halls in a very condensed period. The Hunker Down with Housing program serves to streamline the move-in process and address resident and family feedback concerning traffic congestion, parking lot availability and elevator service. Hunker Down with Housing volunteers work diligently to ensure the initial days of move-in will run smoothly and serve our target audience: first-year students. Hundreds of Hunker Down with Housing volunteers will be located all over campus on August 12-13 to greet new students and parents, give directions to area parking lots, direct traffic and generally serve as a resource for residents and their families. Since the first Hunker Down with Housing in 1998, volunteers have successfully moved in more than 79,000 students and helped them begin to call UGA home. 2014 will be no exception!

Hunker Down with Housing is now accepting volunteers!
