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.
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?”
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.
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.
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.
The sooner you apply, the greater the chances that your preferences in room and roommate can be met. On campus housing fills up very quickly, so it is important to make a decision to live on campus sooner rather than later and avoid being wait listed.
Rates are subject to change and are based on a per bed rate. All housing and parking fees are due before the start of the related semester when tuition and fees are due or immediately following an assignment being accepted if the semester has already started. See Rates for current rates.
Deciding what to bring for your campus apartment or room can be both fun and anxiety producing. It is important not to bring too much and to share larger items with roommates. Contacting your roommate before move in will allow you and your roommate to decide who will bring what. See What Should You Bring? for more detailed information.
