Questions about Housing for Fall Semester

As we plan for fall, we recognize that Covid-19 may present a number of concerns for our residents and their parents. There are many unknowns. But we want you to know that Georgia Tech Housing and Residence Life is developing enhanced cleaning protocols, programming, and distancing initiatives to prevent the spread of disease, while still providing the community and support to enhance academic success and promote your student’s personal growth and development. We’ve responded to some of the most common questions – click here to learn more.


We can’t wait to welcome students back to campus this fall. New first-year student move-in is Aug. 8-9, while all other residents move in Aug. 14-16. Here are some of the ways we’re modifying move-in this year.

  • Students will have an assigned move-in time, and appointments for move-in will be widely spaced out to allow Housing to limit the number of people in one space at any given time. 
  • There will be a drive-thru check-in process that will minimize contact and touch points.
  • Sanitizing stations and enhanced surface area cleaning will be incorporated into this year’s move-in process.
  • Volunteers will be present to assist and will be wearing face coverings.

More information about move-in will be sent via email, so make sure your student is checking their Georgia Tech email. 

The To Parents page on our website is a good place to begin thinking about move-in. 

When students are packing, they should use our Items to Bring page for suggestions. Don’t let them pack too much, and encourage communication between roommates to avoid duplicate items. 

Room Assignments

Housing and Residence Life has proposed a model for housing in the fall maintaining double occupancy of residential rooms in traditional buildings that have common bathrooms on each floor.  

All triple and quadruple rooms in traditional residence halls will be eliminated for Fall 2020. We will work to maximize the number of single-occupancy residences available. 

Room assignments are complete for 2020-21 with the exception of first-year assignments and waitlist assignments. These will be made at the beginning of this month. First-year students will be able to self-assign their room starting July 6. 

Once your student has received a room assignment they can view it and their roommate(s) information in My Housing. If a room change is desired, students can use the Room Swap tab in My Housing. It is best if all room changes are completed online prior to checking out the room key in August. If your student has not applied for housing, but would like to do so, the application is still open.
