On Move-In Day

  • If you have questions, call GT Housing at 404.894.2470.
  • To check in, go directly to your Area Office or the specific check-in location designated in Freshman Students Move In.
  • PICKING UP YOUR KEY IS CHECKING IN regardless if a student spends the night or is dropping off their belongings. There will be a $75 per night per student additional charge made to your Bursar account for early move-in.
  • Bring your own dolly or hand-truck for a quicker move-in.
  • To assist you in your travel plans, see Freshman Students Move In and residence hall street addresses as there will be an increase in traffic volume and congestion during this time.

Freshman Experience Program

The Freshman Experience Program is a self-selected living option designed to help 1st year residents build a solid personal and academic foundation within the context of a diverse and inclusive community.

The foundation of the Freshman Experience is organic — eating together and living in traditional-style residence halls starts building a strong community among the incoming class.

Living Learning Communities

Living Learning Communities are an academic strategy that link academics to on-campus living. Each Georgia Tech community is an integrated experience that promotes interactions between faculty and students, fosters collaboration among students, improves student GPA, enhances campus and civic engagement, increases retention, and eases both the academic and social transition to college.
