Move-In

Welcoming graphic with Atlanta skyline.

Welcoming our new Jackets home is always an exciting time of year! First-year students move in a week before classes start for Week of Welcome, followed by our returning undergraduate, graduate, and transfer students in the days leading up to the first day of class. We know students and families have a lot of questions about what move-in looks like - explore below for more details on the process, a list of which items to bring and not to bring, tips for a smooth move, and more. More details will be posted here as our next move-in approaches. Welcome home, Jackets!

A list of which items to bring

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.
