Current Students



Room sign-up registration begins December 11, 2017 at 9 a.m. Residents wishing to live on campus for 2018-2019 academic year must log onto The Dawg House and complete the initial registration before midnight on Wednesday, 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

Busbee, McWhorter and Vandiver Halls will have 11.5-month contracts (rent charged fall 2018, spring 2019 and summer 2019).

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


East Campus Village (ECV) contracts:
Busbee, McWhorter, and Vandiver Halls will be contracted for the 11.5-month period (fall, spring and summer semesters). Rooker 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 space in any building in ECV.  Residents with expanded housing spaces will have the option to keep their expanded space.

Single Rooms in Brown Hall:
Brown Hall will feature single occupancy rooms in suite with a shared bath for 2018-2019. 

Expanded Housing Spaces:
Expanded housing spaces will be available during room sign up in University Village.


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.
