Current Students



Room sign-up registration begins December 19, 2016 at 9 a.m. Residents wishing to live on campus for 2017-2018 academic year must log onto The Dawg House and complete the initial registration before midnight on Tuesday, January 31.

Appointment times for space selection will be randomly generated and given to those who have registered to participate in the room sign up process by the January 31 deadline. No other criteria will be used to determine appointment times. Depending on the amount of residents wishing to participate in room sign up, multiple rounds of appointment times may be given until all upperclass student spaces are contracted.

Residents registered by January 31 and in eligible spaces or halls who wish to keep their same room/hall will be given the opportunity to do so before random appointment times begin. Residents will be notified via email if their space is eligible for same room sign up.


Current students should indicate their desire to live on campus for the next academic year in The Dawg House. Access The Dawg House from the link to the right.

Contract Changes in East Campus Village

The duration of the contracts for Vandiver Hall will change for 2017-2018. Vandiver Hall will have an academic year contract (closed summer 2018, rent charged for fall and spring). Rooker, Busbee, and McWhorter Halls will have 11.5-month contracts (rent charged fall 2017, spring 2018 and summer 2018).

Visit the Resources page for questions about the room sign-up process.


East Campus Village (ECV) contracts:
Busbee, McWhorter, and Rooker Halls will be contracted for the 11.5-month period (fall, spring and summer semesters). Vandiver Hall will be the nine-month contract option

ECV Same Hall Day:
On same hall day, ECV residents will have the option of selecting a partially furnished one-bedroom apartment in University Village. Each apartment houses two residents and is furnished with two twin XL beds, two desks, two dressers, two chairs and closet space. These apartments also feature living rooms and full kitchens

Oglethorpe House:
Oglethorpe House is currently undergoing construction work to repair the brick facade around the building. This construction will likely continue into the fall semester. Please be mindful that this may create more noise than usual

Double as Private:
Brown Hall will not feature any double-as-private rooms next year. Students in eligible spaces will be allowed to keep their same room, but will be in a double occupancy configuration


All communication to students regarding room sign-up will be sent to the student's UGA email account. Students are expected to check their email regularly for important information.

Current students are not guaranteed housing since incoming first-year students have priority in housing assignments due to the first year live-on requirement. However, upperclass students have priority in selecting a limited number of spaces prior to first-year students being assigned.
