Move-In

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!

Your head is probably spinning. Keep calm and visit the First-year Move-In page for everything you need to know.

Important dates, move-in tips, and more are on the Undergrad Move-In page.

Welcome to your new home — where you’ll keep your stuff and hang out with friends, retreat for a little solitude, do lots of studying, and curl up for a good night’s sleep.

Graduate students - You may move into your residence beginning on the first day of your housing contract occupancy period. Learn more on the Graduate Move-In page.

Unfurnished apartments for graduate students and families are in the 10th and Home Apartments located on the North Campus.

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.
