- This prepayment is applied to the first semester rent.
Specific assignment is contingent upon availability and is NOT GUARANTEED. If a desired space is not available, the student will be assigned the next available space. Contracts are NOT terminated if desired space or style is unavailable.
New First-Year and Transfer
Once you have secured your spot at Georgia Tech by confirming your intent to enroll and paying the $250 enrollment deposit via ePay you can apply for on-campus housing in “My Housing”.
New First-Year, Transfer, and Graduates
All students seeking on-campus housing must first submit their housing prepayment, then complete the online application. This housing prepayment – less a one-time, nonrefundable $80 application fee – will apply toward rent for the first semester. New first-year and transfer students who submit the prepayment and signed application/contract by May 1 will receive priority housing for their first year. New graduates are encouraged to complete the application/contract process by May 1.
Students who complete the application/contract by the appropriate date can make roommate preference selections. If you don't know who you would like to live with, our housing application has a roommate finder. Room Selection Numbers for assignment purposes are based on the date and time that the housing contract is accepted. The earlier you apply increases your chances of getting the room of your choice!
Returning students who apply for academic year, spring, or summer housing before the indicated deadlines will receive priority housing and will be given a room selection number. The room selection numbers will be sorted by and within class status according to the number of credit hours earned at Georgia Tech at the end of the previous fall semester. The lower the room selection number, the better. Rising second-year students’ room selection numbers begin after the upper-class students’ room selection numbers.
A rising second-year student is a first-year student who enrolled at Georgia Tech in summer or fall of the academic previous year. You are considered a rising second-year student even if your class status is sophomore, junior, or senior due to your AP credit hours.
Assignment priority is based on the date and time that the housing contract is accepted within order of the following categories; students with children (married or un-married), then students with spouse, then single graduate students. There is no guaranteed deadline. A qualified student for whom space is not available will be placed on a waiting list and notified of his/her status. Families with three or four members will be assigned a two-bedroom apartment. No more than four persons may reside in a two-bedroom apartment.
