Application Process Update
2/14/2024: Georgia Tech Housing and Residence Life is currently at full capacity for the 2024-25 academic year for rising second year and all other undergraduate housing applications. Applicants will be placed on a waitlist as of February 13.
If you would like to join the waitlist, please visit My Housing.
We understand that students may have questions about why they are on the waitlist if they submitted the Housing Intention Form as soon as it opened at noon on Tuesday. More than 2,200 students submitted the Housing Intention Form in the first 25 seconds of the form opening. Housing is very limited, and space was allocated in the order in which Intention Forms were submitted. The system operated as expected, and no instances of system failure were recorded.
Once you are on the waitlist:
Students will receive a start-time, from which point they can confirm and monitor their position on the waitlist at My Housing.
As housing cancellations occur - prior to end of self-assign – students will be assigned a room selection number based on their number of Georgia Tech credit hours. After self-assign, waitlisted students will be assigned to available rooms based on their waitlist number. Students who cancel their housing application contract while they are still on the waitlist will not be assessed any penalties.
As a reminder, Housing & Residence Life does not guarantee housing, and time-tickets for self-assign are granted based on Georgia Tech credit hours. We work hard to accommodate as many students as possible and hope to begin placing applicants from the waitlist in late spring.
