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 below.

News & Events

Before Move-In

  • Visit Items to Bring (and what not to bring).
  • Contact your roommates to discuss who will bring what!
  • Check out the Room Specifications page to see what is already in your room.
  • Tour your building and room online.

 

On Move-In Day

  • If you have questions, call call the Central Housing Office at 404-894-2470.
  • To check in and get your room keys, go directly to your Area Office or designated location.
  • PICKING UP YOUR KEY IS CHECKING IN regardless if a student spends the night or is dropping off their belongings. There will be a $50 per night per student additional charge made to your Bursar account for early move-in.
  • 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 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.

 

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.
