Parents and Legal Guardians
Welcome to University Housing at the University of Georgia!
It is the mission of University Housing to provide comfortable, affordable and secure on-campus housing options in residential communities where the academic success and personal growth of resident students is encouraged and supported. We take this mission seriously, and we invite you to take a look at the programs and services we offer that can help enrich your student's collegiate experience. Nearly all phases of the assignments process can be completed electronically on this site, including registering for housing, indicating your preferred residence hall(s) and designating your roommate(s).
We recommend you take some time to navigate through all areas of our website to get a feel for what we have to offer, why living in the residence halls enhances students' overall educational experience. Living on campus is the way to live Georgia. Don't just attend Georgia, live it!
This publication is developed just for parents of residence hall students and will be distributed to all parents several times a year to update you on University Housing news and upcoming events. The current issue, as well as back issues, of Bulldog Families are available as a resource for you!
First Year Live-On Requirement
There is an abundance of national and regional evidence demonstrating that undergraduate students who live on campus exhibit stronger academic performance, forge deeper bonds with their communities and report a higher level of satisfaction with their overall collegiate experience. As a result, in 2003 the Cabinet initiated a policy requiring all first-year students to live on campus through their first year of enrollment beginning with the fall 2004 entering class.
The entire process of registering for housing can be completed online once the student has been accepted to the University of Georgia. Because all hall and roommate preferences are prioritized in order of registration date we strongly recommend the student complete our easy-to-use online registration process through The Dawg House as soon as possible after being accepted for enrollment.
The University of Georgia and University Housing will regularly transmit essential, time sensitive information to your student through his or her official UGA e-mail account. It's also where students will be told about cool campus news and opportunities. Students should check this account regularly!
