University Housing

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.

Dawgs Ditch the Dumpster and Donate is a campus-wide end-of-year donation initiative that gives students the opportunity to donate unwanted items to the community instead of throwing them in the dumpster to be taken to a landfill. Last year's efforts diverted more than 30,000 pounds of unwanted items to the local community. We're seeking volunteers to assist with monitoring donation sites during residence hall move out in all communities from April 25 through May 9. Volunteers receive a free tshirt and gift card to Goodwill. To register as a volunteer, click here!

From Brumby to Busbee and Myers to McWhorter, throughout the years our residents have impressed us with their originality and creativity when it comes to residence hall living. The LookBook features some of the best rooms we’ve seen in hopes they will inform and inspire future residents.
