Graduate Student Move-In Information

Graduate Apartment Living Room

Welcome to your new home! To ensure a smooth move-in process, carefully review the dates and information about when to move in, how to get to your building, what to bring (and what to leave behind), and which Community Office you'll be using.

Spring 2022 Move-In Dates: January 7

Before You Move-In
  • If you do not already have a BuzzCard, upload your photo now at buzzcard.gatech.edu
  • Mark your calendar for your move-in appointment. You can view and change your move-in appointment in My Housing.
    • If you cannot move in during the official move-in days listed here, please follow the instructions found on this page.
    • Arriving from an international location? Visit this page to find more guidance and details on our limited self-isolation housing options.

  • Graduate and Family move-in has many moving parts, so the details you need in order to successfully move in will be communicated directly by email.
  • Visit Items to Bring (and what not to bring).
On Move-In Day
  • Click here for a map for Graduate Living Center and 10th and Home.
  • Please do your best to arrive at the time of your appointment. Check-in will be open 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m. - 6 p.m. on weekends. If you are delayed and will arrive after hours, please notify us at information@housing,gatech.edu.
    • When you arrive at check-in, our greeters will ask for your photo ID, then give you your move-in packet and a temporary parking pass.
    • You'll head to your designated unloading zone, and have 30 minutes to unloading your belongings from your vehicle into bins we will provide.
    • You will then move your car to long term parking in ER: 66 for the day.
    • If you arrive after hours, please visit the 10th and Home Activity Room to check-in.
  • Check your email for directions related to your specific check-in location and process. Many check in areas may have garages with a maximum height of 7-feet 6-inches. This means U-hauls and other taller vehicles won’t be able to enter.   
  • To make your move-in as smooth as possible, see our Move-in Tips and Items to Bring pages.
  • Bring your own dolly or hand-truck for a quicker move-in.

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.
