Timelines and Deadlines
Fall Registration and Assignments Process for First-Year Students
The following information outlines the general timeline for registration and assignment of housing spaces for new, first-year students. More specific information is provided throughout the registration process. First-year students with families should consult the information on Transfer and Graduate Students page.
December: Because hall and roommate preferences are prioritized in order of registration date, we strongly recommended that students submit the $35 non-refundable University Housing registration fee as soon as possible following admission (registration will be open 48-72 hours after you obtain your MyID). Registration begins when the Office of Undergraduate Admissions releases early action decisions in November/December of the year preceding fall move-in and is completed through The Dawg House. Registering for housing does not obligate you to enroll at UGA.
January to August: Online registration continues for the upcoming fall term.
Mid-May*: A date in mid-May will be designated as the last day to register for housing and/or modify registration online before the initial round of first year assignments are made.
Late May: Immediately following the last day to register for a space with University Housing there will be a period of approximately one week in which no registrations and/or modifications will be accepted.
End of May: Students registered by the mid-May priority date will receive an update on registration/assignment status in late May.
May-June: First year students who registered for housing prior to the mid-May priority date will be able to submit reassignment requests online.
June: First year students—who are required to live on campus—must execute a contract by the due date provided, however no housing prepayments are required.
End of July: Specific room and roommate information will be released to students who have signed and returned a residence hall contract.
August: The residence halls will officially open for fall semester on a date in mid-August. Only members of the Redcoat Marching Band are eligible to move in before the official opening date.
*All first year students registering for on-campus housing after this date will be assigned to a specific residence hall via an ongoing process throughout the summer.
