Living on Campus

While convenience is often the number one reason for living on campus, you’ll find we offer our students much more than just a place to study and sleep. Georgia State provides students with a variety of living options.

Why Live on Campus
While convenience is often the number one reason for living on campus, you’ll find we offer our students much more than just a place to study and sleep.  A decision to live in University housing means your student will join the 4100 students who live on our campus and call it home.
University Housing provides opportunities for student growth and development through educational, cultural, recreational, and social programs presented in our living & learning communities. If your student chooses to live in University Housing, he or she will meet more people — guaranteed. Living on campus will give your student a greater sense of connection with the University and with the people they will meet.
Still wondering why we think being part of our residential community will enhance your student’s experience at Georgia State University? Here are just a few reasons why our staff and 4100 residents would ask, “Why live anywhere else?”
