The University System of Georgia (USG) has decided that all 26 institutions will move to online instruction for all courses for the remainder of the semester with extremely limited exceptions. This action comes following last week’s decision to suspend instruction for two weeks to ensure business and instructional continuity, and to allow further state assessment of COVID-19. Georgia Tech residence halls will be closed, with minimal exceptions for students unable to return home, or who cannot find housing elsewhere.
Housing and Residence Life has heard your concerns; we recognize some conflicting messaging has created confusion and anxiety. Much of the feedback we received yesterday was about being unable to move out before March 29 and an inability to cover the expense of a packing service. To better serve our residents and their families, we are allowing residents to leave items in their rooms for the remainder of the term.
