Built in 1953 as an all-women community, Myers Hall is perhaps best known as the home of Charlayne Hunter-Gault, the first African American student to attend UGA beginning in 1961. A display in her honor is featured in the lobby of Myers Hall. Myers Hall was renovated in 2003 and houses more than 400 male and female students, mostly in traditional-style rooms, and a limited number of suites. Each room is furnished with two desks, two chairs, two four-drawer dressers and two 17-position adjustable beds. Myers Hall has a 24/7 community desk, multiple conference rooms for meetings and activities and a large lobby for social engagement.
Myers Hall is the magnet residence hall for the University of Georgia Honors Program. This beautifully renovated hall is home to 250 first-year Honors Program students, affording them the opportunity to live and study in a learning community of like-minded peers. An Honors Program satellite advising office is also conveniently located in Myers Hall.
The visitation option for Myers Hall is “2”, which allows for visitors 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
