Campus Impacts During Upper-Class Move-In

Primary tabs

This past weekend, over 3100 first-year Yellow Jackets moved into Georgia Tech Housing. This week, almost 4500 upper-class and graduate residents will move in on August 18, 20, and 21.

With much of campus back in person, look out for impacts to traffic and additional congestion on Wednesday, August 18, and Friday, August 20. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Residents moving in will enter campus heading westbound on North Avenue and turn right on Tech Parkway to get to the back of the CRC Parking Deck for check-in. There will be additional congestion on these routes, expect delays.
  • After check-in, residents will turn left onto Ferst Drive from the CRC Parking Deck and take either a left onto 6th Street for West Campus or stay straight on Ferst Drive, turning right onto Techwood Drive for East Campus and North Avenue Apartments. Ferst Drive will remain open to through traffic. Please use caution as GTPD officers and volunteers will be on-site directing traffic.
  • Expect additional delays and congestion throughout West Campus, on Techwood Drive, Luckie Street, Pine Street, and Centennial Olympic Park Drive for East Campus and North Avenue move-in.

Additionally, please abide by all parking notices and posted signage as these areas are needed for resident check-in, unloading, and long-term parking. This includes:

  • W10 permit holders, who can park in W02-Student Center deck.
  • ER54 permit holders, who can park in ER54-North Ave. South deck (levels 2 and 3).
  • West campus on-street parking can park in WR30-Curran deck and W31-IPST lot.
  • East campus on-street parking can park in E52-Peters deck and E65-McCamish lot.
