Living on Campus

While convenience is often the number one reason for living on campus, you’ll find that University Housing offers 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
A decision to live in University Housing means new students will join the 4100 students who live on campus and call it home. University Housing provides opportunities for student growth and development through educational, cultural, recreational and social programs available in all housing locations and in Living-Learning Communities. If a student chooses to live in University Housing, he or she is guaranteed to meet more people. Living on campus will give students a greater sense of connection with the university and with the people they will meet.

If you are still wondering why being part of the residential community will enhance your experience at Georgia State University, here are just a few reasons why University Housing staff and 4100 residents would ask, “Why live anywhere else?”

Enjoy the Conveniences of Living on Campus
Enjoy Conveniences
When a student lives on campus, one price includes furniture, utilities, cable, internet and laundry. Students can choose between a meal plan, dining downtown at over 300 restaurants or preparing their own food in their own kitchen, which is available in many of the residence halls. And, of course, students who live on campus enjoy an easy walk to classes, the libraries, shopping, dining, exercising and other recreational areas.
Make Social Connections
Making Friends
Living on campus creates more opportunities to meet new people and develop lasting friendships. Students living on campus can take advantage of communal dining, athletics, concerts, films, lectures, study groups and student organizations. Social, educational, cultural and recreational opportunities are available in all housing locations. While there's always something in which to take part at any given time, students can choose their level of involvement.
Achieve and Succeed
Achieve and Succeed
Research indicates living on campus positively influences a student’s grade point average, level of involvement in campus activities, retention at the university and satisfaction with his or her collegiate experience. On campus, students can take advantage of study groups, additional instruction, advisement and career services. Professional staff in University Housing are available for advice or referral for topics ranging from personal problems to career decisions.

University Housing makes assignments without regard to race, religion, color, age, disability, national origin or sexual orientation. Subject to availability, University Housing will attempt to take student preferences into account. No guarantee of a specific unit, space, rate, facility, complex or assignment is made or implied.
