University Housing

We are thrilled to announce a new programming collaboration between University Housing and the UGA Health Center’s (UHC) Health Promotion department to address common first-year behaviors and concerns, including alcohol and other drugs, sexual assault, safer sex and stress management. We are calling the program Healthy at Home.

The first year in college can be daunting and overwhelming trying to find a niche. While the benefit of attending a large school like UGA is the multitude of options available to participate, some options may not involve good decision-making.   

Upon completion of three programs annually, participants will be awarded the Healthy at Home Certificate.

University Housing is working with the University Health Center to bring the Healthy at Home Certificate Program into residence halls. The first program offered is WatchDawgs, aimed at training students in bystander intervention.

Participants will learn to:

  • Develop ways to increase awareness of sexual assault and alcohol emergencies, such as learning to make observations and recognizing warning signs that may require intervention
  • Be motivated to help
  • Employ appropriate skills to intervene safely and effectively, in both direct and indirect ways

It's almost time to Hunker Down with 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.
