June 21 - Summer iGniTe Move-in
  • Before you depart for campus, review the map of how to get to campus and find check-in at your residence hall. Please follow the directions listed, as roadway maintenance will make our typical routes more difficult. 
  • Be sure to arrive at your Move-In time. Residents should arrive within their 30-minute check-in window to begin the check-in process.   

  • Check-in for iGniTe will occur at your residence hall – Glenn or Towers Residence Halls. Both are located at 116 Bobby Dodd Way NW, Atlanta, GA  30332. 

    • Please use Techwood Drive to arrive at your residence hall and have your time-slot email on your phone ready to show the parking attendant at the intersection of Bobby Dodd and Techwood Dr. Please note that there may be congestion on Techwood due to maintenance and other campus activities.  

  • Volunteers will meet you at your car and give you a packet that includes your room key and direct you to your room.  

  • You will have 30 minutes to unload your vehicle(s) outside the residence hall. You will transfer your items from your vehicle into bins. Your group will move your bin closer to your hall, where you will park it and carry your items on to your room by hand.  

  • You can park your car for the day at Peter’s Parking Deck (E52) or any open ER51 parking space

  • You will pick up your BuzzCard at the GT Connector, located between Glenn and Towers Residence Halls. 

August 14 & 15 - Fall First-Year Move-in
  • Before you depart for campus, review the map of how to get to campus and find check-in. 
  • Go through check-in to receive your keys and a map to your unloading area. 
  • You will unload your items into the large bins available before moving your vehicle(s) out of the loading area to your long term parking spot. 

To make your move-in as smooth as possible, see our Move-in Tips page. If you have additional questions, call the Housing & Residence Life team at 404.894.2470.

As you plan your arrival to Georgia Tech we ask that you limit the items you bring to essentials only. Be mindful and minimal as you pack your belongings to make your move-in experience as smooth as possible. By doing so, you help us encourage the safety of our volunteers and your fellow residents. Click below for information on recommended and prohibited items.

We know moving a student into their room is a big step. Additionally, the move-in process this year will be different from anything you've seen before as we work to maintain the safety of our community. Visit this page of tips and best practices to make this monumental move a smooth one.
