Fall Registration and Assignments Process for First-Year Students

The following information outlines the general timeline for registration and assignment of housing spaces for new, first-year students. More specific information is provided throughout the registration process. First-year students with families should consult the information on Transfer and Graduate Students page.

December: Because hall and roommate preferences are prioritized in order of registration date, we strongly recommended that students submit the $35 non-refundable University Housing registration fee as soon as possible following admission. Registration begins when the Office of Undergraduate Admissions releases early action decisions in November/December of the year preceding fall move-in and is completed through The Dawg House. Housing registration will be open on Mondays after asdmissions emails are sent on Fridays. Students MUST have a MyID to register for housing. Instructions for obtaining a MyID will be sent via email from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Registering for housing does not obligate you to enroll at UGA. 

January to August: Online registration continues for the upcoming fall term.

Mid-May*: A date in mid-May will be designated as the last day to register for housing and/or modify registration online before the initial round of first year assignments are made.

Late May: Immediately following the last day to register for a space with University Housing there will be a period of approximately one week in which no registrations and/or modifications will be accepted.

End of May: Students registered by the mid-May priority date will receive an update on registration/assignment status in late May.

May-June: First year students who registered for housing prior to the mid-May priority date will be able to submit reassignment requests online.

June: First year students—who are required to live on campus—must execute a contract by the due date provided, however no housing prepayments are required.

End of July: Specific room and roommate information will be released to students who have signed and returned a residence hall contract.

August: The residence halls will officially open for fall semester on a date in mid-August. Only members of the Redcoat Marching Band are eligible to move in before the official opening date. 

*All first year students registering for on-campus housing after this date will be assigned to a specific residence hall via an ongoing process throughout the summer.
