MicroChill rental program

MicroChills (a mini fridge and microwave combination unit) are available for rent through University Housing. Our partnered vendor, College Products, will deliver and pick up these units, saving residents the hassle of moving them and preventing them from entering the landfill at the end of the year. A similar small fridge and microwave combination unit will come standard in every room in Reed, Payne and Brown Halls.

MicroChills will fit in any residence hall room and measure 18.5″ wide x 19.5″ deep x 43″ tall.

On-campus housing for orientation

On-campus accommodations are available for the night before and/or after first-year orientation through University Housing in Russell Hall. Fees (if applicable) will be charged your student account.

Students

Additional night: $30 for a double-occupancy room with community bathroom  

Family and supporters are encouraged to stay at the Georgia Center UGA Hotel and Conference Center, where reduced orientation rates are available.
