Keepers and Seekers 2018
Greetings University Housing Residents:
Enjoying your room this year? Does it give you that home away from home feel? Do you have that roommate bond you are just not willing to break? Do you want a change of scenery for the next academic year? Or maybe you just want to avoid having an overflow room for next year?
What’s going on with housing?
Because of the increasing popularity of living on Georgia State’s Atlanta campus, University Housing has experienced an unusual increase in the number of applicants desiring housing for the fall academic term. Student demand for housing is greater than the number of spaces we offer on campus. To house as many students as possible, University Housing has arranged for alternative rooming accommodations referred to as overflow housing.
Some residents in University Commons have been asked to volunteer to share a bedroom for a $1,400 room reduction rate for the semester.
Some rooms in Piedmont North and University Lofts have been designated overflow rooms. Residents in those properties will also receive a discount in cost.
About 400 students will be temporarily housed at the Sheraton Hotel, one block from Piedmont North. Resident assistants and university police will be deployed to the property. These students will receive a pro-rated cost and will be moved into University Housing no later than Aug. 31.
When vacancies do occur, students in overflow spaces will be given priority over students in non-overflow spaces. We aim to reassign all students in overflow housing within the first few weeks of the semester as cancellations are received. If one student in a room with overflow elects to move to a permanent space, the rent for the students remaining reverts to the full rate. However, if we are unable to move all students out of these spaces, some may be converted to permanent spaces for the remainder of the semester.
For on-campus overflow spaces, we aim to reassign all students in overflow housing within the first few weeks of the semester, as cancellations are received. If one student in a room with overflow elects to move to a permanent space, the rent for the students remaining reverts to the full rate. However, if we are unable to move all students out of these spaces, some may be converted to permanent spaces for the remainder of the semester.
Students assigned to on-campus overflow spaces will receive a meal plan if required for that residence hall. Halls that require meal plans are Piedmont Central, Piedmont North and Patton Hall.
Studies also show that being tripled does not affect students' adjustment to college life and that tripled students are as likely as others to participate in student organizations and to report satisfaction with their academic and social experiences. Students report that privacy and personal space are affected and they may spend less time in their rooms studying than other students, but academic performance overall is consistent with other residence hall students, regardless of living environment.
