Georgia State’s transition to a residential university is fairly recent, so facilities are modern and comfortable. University housing was designed with features and amenities to support students’ success and meet their needs. Residents have conveniences that help them manage their time and resources, common areas and communication tools that help them stay connected to one another and the world at large, and private spaces where they can find solitude and do their own thing.

Some examples of programs offered in residence halls include movie nights, open mic nights, dance parties, karaoke nights and educational speakers. Residents should let their RA or CC know what interests them and help make the residence halls a fun place to live and learn.
Bicycles may not be stored or secured to any items on or in the plaza, lawns, fences, lounges, hallways, elevators, stairwells or any other public area. Bikes secured in violation of this policy or bikes left unattended will be impounded, declared abandoned after 30 days and discarded.
For the safety of others, bicycles may not be ridden on the plaza or courtyards of University Commons, University Lofts or Piedmont North. Students should walk their bicycle off the grounds before they begin riding.
For residents, any PantherCards, debit cards or licenses found are placed in campus mailboxes and an email notification is sent to the resident. For non-residents, any PantherCards found are sent to the PantherCard office.
If any access cards or keys are found, direct contact will be made with the resident.
Recycling is encouraged, but appropriate measures must be made to ensure that items to be recycled are stored properly to maintain a safe and healthy living environment.
Residents who recycle should:
- Wash all cans, bottles, jars, etc., so that insects are not attracted.
- Transport recyclables in sturdy containers or bags to prevent breaking.
- Deliver recyclables to the proper container.
- Remove recyclables from their apartment on a regular basis.
University Housing is not responsible for funds lost in vending machines. Refunds must be obtained through the service provider as noted on the machines.
