Current Resident Room Sign-Up

Residents wishing to live on campus for 2020-2021 academic year must log onto The Dawg House and complete the initial registration between December 2, 2019 and noon January 17, 2020. There is no fee for current residents, and registration alone does not commit students to living on campus for the 2020-2021 academic year. Appointment times to choose a space will be granted in the order in which current students complete the returning student registration in The Dawg House. 

No other criteria will be used to determine appointment times. Depending on the number of residents wishing to participate in room sign up, multiple rounds of appointment times may be given until all returning student spaces are contracted. 

The Process

1. Register to participate in room sign up in The Dawg House by noon January 17.
2. Research halls, floorplans and rates in the Housing tab above.
3. Take a tour of available halls Sunday, Jan. 12 between noon and 3 p.m.
4. Create or join a roommate group in order to assign roommates to your space with your roommates. Designate all roommates by noon January 17.
5. Check your UGA email for information about your appointment time to choose a space online or notifications that you are eligible to stay in your same room or hall.
6. During your appointment time, log in to The Dawg House, choose a space and add your roommates.
7. Execute your housing contract by the deadline given via email. If you fail to execute the contract, you may lose your space.
8. Students with completed contracts for fall 2020 may submit a room change request at any time. 

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, returning students have priority in selecting a limited number of spaces prior to first-year students being assigned. Weekly sign-up rounds will occur throughout the spring semester.
