Before You Move-In
  • If you do not already have a BuzzCard, upload your photo now at
    • If you submitted your photo before July 10, your card will be in your key packet at move-in check-in.
    • If you did not submit before July 10, you will receive information at check-in on where and when to pick up your card. We still recommend you submit your photo in advance.
  • Mark your calendar for your move-in appointment. You can view and change your move-in appointment until July 30 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,
    • When you arrive, call the RA on Duty. You can find their number listed at the main entrance to each residence hall. They will let you into your space for the night. You'll visit your area office the next day for next steps. 
  • 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.
  • To assist you in your travel plans, see residence hall street addresses as there will be an increase in traffic volume and congestion during this time.

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.
