University Housing

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. 

Building on the theme “There are more than 35,000 ways to be a Georgia bulldog,” #OneUGA Twitter chats hosted during the summer will serve as an opportunity for students to connect with university partners as we celebrate the diversity of our student body and let everyone know they have a place at UGA.

Our summer Twitter chats will create a virtual space for students to come together and express their excitement, concerns, fears, and frustrations about their transition into the academic year. In addition, these chats would provide an opportunity for students to learn about university resources and engage with campus partners and current students who can offer advice on how to navigate the college experience.

It's that time of year when University Housing begins to welcome the class of 2019 to campus and into the residence halls. We know you want to see more than your orientation room in Creswell Hall, so we've orginized a summer tour program specifically for first-year and transfer orientation participants. 

A record fifteen of our halls, including Family and Graduate Housing, will be available for tours on day 2 of first-year orientation June 2 through July 30. On transfer orientation days, McWhorter Hall, an apartment-style space in East Campus Village, and Brown Hall on the Health Sciences Campus will be avaliable for tours. 

Residence hall tours are drop-in and open to everyone. Check out our Tour the Halls page for more specifics.

Summer is Coming....

All residents with academic year contracts must check out of their rooms 24 hours after their last final exam or no later than May 9 at noon (whichever comes first).

Residents of Busbee, McWhorter, and Vandiver halls planning to move out at the end of the spring semester need to cancel their residence hall contract in the Housing Assignments Office no later than April 28 and follow the instructions below. For information about cancellation fees please contact the Housing Assignments Office or refer to your residence hall contract.

Residents must schedule an appointment time in advance for checkout. Community and hall-specific instructions for scheduling appointments will be sent via email. All personal belongings must be removed prior to the checkout appointment.

There is a $25 fee for improper and/or unscheduled checkouts. Ask your RA if you have questions about this procedure.

For the first time in its history, University Housing will offer two $500 scholarships to returning residents for the fall 2015 semester through the Jim Day Housing Scholarship Fund.

Dr. James “Jim” Day served as executive director of University Housing from 1990 to 2006. Dr. Day conceived and initially funded the University Housing Scholarship Fund to assist students with financial need offset the cost of on-campus housing.  In recognition of his devoted service to the University of Georgia and in honor of his personal commitment to helping secure financial assistance for students, the scholarship was perpetually named the Jim Day Housing Scholarship Fund upon his retirement.

Recipients of the scholarships must complete the application in its entirety and submit by May 15, 2015, must have demonstrated financial need as determined by the UGA Office of Financial Aid, and must be undergraduate students with an existing on-campus room assignment for the 2015-2016 academic year.
