Contract

For your specific contract, contact University Housing or log into The Dawg House. Download a general copy of the housing contract below for review prior to registration.  

The housing contract is a legally binding agreement between the resident and the Board of Regents and the University System of Georgia that secures a living space. The housing contract: 

  • Defines the terms and conditions of occupancy 
  • Addresses pertinent Georgia laws 
  • Refers to specific sections of the Student Code of Conduct and the student handbook 

By executing your contract online, you are agreeing to the terms of the housing contract and making a commitment to live on campus and to pay rates for the fall and spring semesters and, in some cases, summer semester.

We do, however, encourage students to seek out study abroad opportunities or internships, and those provisions are included in the section of your contract detailing proper termination. Failure to properly terminate a housing contract could result in fees or flags on your student account, which could impact your ability to register for classes or receive a copy of your transcript following graduation. 

Proper planning and review of your contract will help ensure that you are comfortable with your living space and understand the terms of occupancy. As always, if you have any questions about the contract, please feel free to contact University Housing at 706-542-1421 or housing@uga.edu
