What you'll need to move in

Consider bringing a small cart or dolly. Although carts are available in many buildings, there is a limited number of carts available for students to use. You might also consider bringing a small tool kit and a pen for filling out several forms at check in.

Checking into a residence hall room

Each student must have his/her UGA OneCard or government-issued ID to check in. Students should know their student ID number and emergency contact information (preferably, this should be someone in the United States). Only the student can receive a room key; family members and roommates cannot check into a room and receive a key for a student.

Mail

Mail is delivered by the United States Postal Service to the central mailboxes assigned in each area or hall. In University Village Housing and the Health Sciences Campus (HSC) mail is delivered by the U.S. Postal Service. Addresses are listed on the webpage for each building.

Residence hall contracts

Students age 18 or older execute housing contracts online. The contract is a legally binding agreement between the student, the university and the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia. To view an example of a contract, visit housing.uga.edu/site/resources. For student-specific contracts, students may log in to The Dawg House or contact the University Housing at 706-542-1421 or housing@uga.edu.
