New Transfers

Picture of Move-in Sign.

As a college student, you’ve already been handling an increased level of responsibility and independence — academic, social, logistical, and financial. Now that you’re advancing in your academic career, you’ll want to do whatever you can to make that journey easier. That’s where living on campus can help. We're excited to 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. Read everything you need to know about moving in with us below, or click the button below to find the information you'd find during FASET orientation.

Details for January Move-in Coming Soon!

Mark your calendars for January 13, 2021, when a new batch of Yellow Jackets will move into our residential community.

Check back soon for details related to key pick-up, unloading zones, early move-in accommodations, and more. 

In the meantime, be sure to get your BuzzCard in hand. If you haven't already, upload your photo by December 27, 2020 to ensure your BuzzCard is printed and in your key packet at 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. 

Living Learning Communities

Living Learning Communities are an academic strategy that link academics to on-campus living. Each Georgia Tech community is an integrated experience that promotes interactions between faculty and students, fosters collaboration among students, improves student GPA, enhances campus and civic engagement, increases retention, and eases both the academic and social transition to college.
