Hunker Down with Housing

Hairy Dawg at Hunker Down with Housing

2015 Hunker Down with Housing will be August 11-12! 
See you there and GO DAWGS!

Each year the University of Georgia community welcomes more than 8,000 new students into the residence halls in a very condensed period. The Hunker Down with Housing program streamlines the move-in process and addresses resident and family feedback concerning traffic congestion, parking lot availability and elevator service. Hunker Down with Housing volunteers work to ensure the initial days of move-in run smoothly. Hundreds of Hunker Down with Housing volunteers will be located all over campus to greet new students and parents, give directions to area parking lots, direct traffic and generally serve as a resource for residents and their families. Since the first Hunker Down with Housing in 1998, volunteers have successfully moved in more than 88,000 students and helped them begin to call UGA home.
