Before move in day
  • If you do not already have a BuzzCard, upload your photo now at You BuzzCard lets you access your building & meal plan, and will be ready for pickup at check-in during move-in. 
  • Check your email for directions related to your specific check-in location and process. 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).
  • Contact your roommate(s) to discuss who will bring what!
On move-in day
  • Click here for a map for Graduate Living Center and 10th and Home.
  • 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.
  • If you have questions, call the Central Housing Office 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.
