Graduate Housing

Why Live on Campus?

Graduate students have a unique lifestyle. We know that many of your days will be long--working on research until all hours of the night. We also know that some of you will need to adjust to a new town and a new institution. Our buildings are designed, and our staff is trained, to help you succeed. We have more study lounges than recreational areas and our activities help you acclimate to Atlanta. About 70% of our residents are international students so the experiences you will have living with us will be more than even you can imagine.

Tenth & Home and the Graduate Living Center at Georgia Tech are perfect for graduate students looking for the convenience of on campus housing with the flexibility of off campus apartments. GT Housing has something for everyone!


The Application Process

For specific deadline dates, refer to the housing calendar.

About the application

The application for housing is completely on-line. In order to complete the application you must make a $600 prepayment--which incorporates our one-time only $80 application fee. When completing the application students will have the ability to make building and roommate preference selections. If you don't know who you would like to live with our housing application has a roommate finder. Keep in mind, you can submit the application, and then log back in to make edits to your preferences. All new graduate students are assigned rooms based on the date of application--the sooner you apply the better!

Where do I apply?

My Housing is an on-line system where both returning Graduate students and new Graduate students that have been admitted, and who have made the admissions deposit, to the Georgia Institute of Technology can complete the online housing application.

How do I make the prepayment?

  1. Activate your student account (Skip this step, if you have already done this.)
  2. Login to Buzzport
  3. Click on the icon that says Pay Your Admission and Housing Deposit or Housing Pay Now
  4. Click on eDeposits (at the very top of the page)
  5. Select the appropriate Term
  6. Select "(Fall, Spring, Summer) Housing Prepay"
  7. Continue Payment Process as directed
  8. Complete the Housing Application at "My Housing"

What kind of housing am I eligible for?

Graduate students are eligible to live in our Graduate Living Center apartment style residence hall or the Tenth & Home residence halls. The apartments within Tenth & Home include 2 person shared, furnished, apartments, as well as unfurnished family and single student housing. For a full list of our buildings and who can live there, view our Residence Halls.

Am I guaranteed housing?

All returning students who submit the $600 rent prepayment may apply for Fall housing starting in mid-February. Students who apply  before the given deadline are guaranteed housing. All new students who submit the $600 rent prepayment and complete the online application by June 1st are guaranteed housing. If you only want spring housing, if you submit the prepayment and the completed application by the deadline in November you are guaranteed housing. For the summer semester, all new and returning students must submit their $300 rent prepayment and online application by the last week of March to be guaranteed housing. Late applications are accepted for all terms but housing is not guaranteed.

When will I get my room and roommate information?

Fall room and roommate information for returning students is released by mid-April. The same information will be released mid July for new students. To view this information students should log into My Housing and go back into the application. The information will be displayed there.

What if I want to cancel my application, or my room assignment?

If at any point you no longer want housing or decide not to attend Georgia Tech, immediately log into My Housing and cancel your housing! You will be subject to our Cancellation Policy.

How will GT Housing contact you?

Your official Georgia Tech e-mail address will serve as our point of contact with you. However, keep in mind room and roommate information will only be available via My Housing.
