Microwaves, mini-fridges, and shower shoes — oh my. Students will soon begin moving in for the fall semester, and as they do, campus traffic will likely become congested.
Early move-in for first-year students attending the last two FASET orientation sessions will be Aug. 11 for FASET 6 and Aug. 13 for FASET 7. Early move-in for new and returning students begins Aug. 13.
Regular move-in for first-year students will take place Thursday and Friday, Aug. 16–17, which is when traffic will be at its peak. Returning students will do their regular move-in that weekend, Aug. 18–19.
Those on campus should expect heavier traffic and congested paths and roadways, as well as restrictions on parking in East Campus areas.
Beginning at 6:30 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 16, vehicular traffic on Techwood Drive between Fourth Street and North Avenue will be restricted only to those who are moving into campus housing. Those traveling southbound on Techwood will be routed down Fourth Street toward Peters Parking Deck if they are not involved in move-in. Vehicles coming from North Avenue will be sent further west to access campus from Cherry Street or Tech Parkway. Regular access to Techwood will resume at 6 p.m. on Thursday.
Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to leave extra time to get to campus and travel within the campus corridors, whether in a car, on foot, on a bike, or other mode of transport.
Remember to keep an eye out for new Yellow Jackets and their families who may look lost and need a little direction. For more information, visit housing.gatech.edu.
