Housing Policies

All residents are expected to know and conduct themselves in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in the UGA Student Handbook, Health Sciences Campus Community Guide, and the University of Georgia Health Sciences Campus Contract, including but not limited to, Section 1A in the “Terms” portion. It is your responsibility to read and understand the materials and directions in your contract, the community guide, and the student handbook, as well as official e-mails, posters, policy changes or written/verbal correspondence issued by University Housing or its staff.

Assignments Policies

Break of Housing
Residents leaving campus for an extended period of time for reasons associated with their academic responsibilities (e.g., collect data for research, internship, etc.) have the option to store their belongings in their assigned residence, while only paying a reduced rate of $250 per month, prorated on a weekly basis, as rent for the apartment during the time away. Time estimated away from campus must be no less than four weeks and not longer than eight weeks. Terms of eligibility are outlined in the Community Guide and more information can be obtained by calling the Housing Assignments Office.

Changing Residence
After a resident moves into an apartment, a request may be made to transfer to another unit. Transfers made at the request of the resident may be subject to a $100 transfer fee, which will be assessed to the resident’s rental payment the first month following the completion of the transfer. Every attempt will be made to honor transfer requests, and the priority will be based on the transfer request date and conditions outlined in the community guide. Assignments for transfer requests made in conjunction with a renewal of the housing contract typically take place in March with moves completed between May and July. The transfer request form is available through the Housing Assignments Office.

Community Guide
The Health Sciences Campus Community Guide offers important material to you in one convenient location. You will find helpful information regarding your residence, University Housing, and details regarding all of our community standards and policies. Along with your contract, this guide provides answers to the many questions you may have about living with us on campus.

All students living on the Health Sciences Campus are required to sign a contract. The University of Georgia Health Sciences Campus Housing Contract defines the terms and conditions of occupancy, the beginning and ending dates, the rental rate and procedures for termination. It is each student's responsibility to be familiar with the content of the contract. If you do not have a copy of your contract, you can contact the Housing Assignments Office and request a copy.

Equal Opportunity
The University of Georgia is an Equal Opportunity Employer/Affirmative Action Institution and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability or veteran status in its recruitment, admissions, availability of financial aid, opportunity to participate in programs and activities, use of housing and facilities, availability of services, hiring, promotion, training, layoff and termination, or rate of pay and other forms of compensation.

Rights and Responsibilities
As a UGA student, you are guaranteed all of the rights, privileges and freedoms granted to all citizens; however, with these rights come responsibilities. UGA students are expected to abide by all federal, state and local laws. Alleged violations of these laws may be referred to the appropriate court or law enforcement authority. Violations of applicable laws may also result in UGA disciplinary action.

Student Code of Conduct
University conduct regulations are explained in the UGA Student Handbook. It is responsibility of every student to know and abide by the Student Code of Conduct.
