Arriving to Campus and Checking In
We know this is an exciting time for you and your family, and our staff will do everything we can to help you get moved into your new home efficiently.
Upon arriving to campus, proceed directly to your residence hall front desk to check in and retrieve your keys. You will be asked to show your Panther ID card. You must complete the online 2022-2023 Resident Information Record and Fire Safety Module before you arrive (see Prior to Arrival section).
Arriving at your Hall
Upon arriving to your respective residence hall, you will notice there will be many students in unloading zones preparing to move in. Please refer to your individual move-in email referencing your residence hall’s proper unloading location.
We know that this is an exciting time for you and your family. As a staff, we will do everything we can to help you move into your new home efficiently. The unloading process varies by location – this information will be provided upon arrival. University Housing will have a limited number of large bins available to assist with your move. We STRONGLY encourage you to bring your own equipment needed to facilitate your move-in process.
We request bringing a maximum of only two (2) family and friends to participate in your move in process. Consider bringing family and friends another day after you move in. All guests of the resident will need to be checked at their community front desk. A government-issued photo ID is required by both the resident and their guests.
Immediately after arriving and unloading, all family/guest cars as well as resident cars who have not paid for semester parking are required to move their vehicle to a local city parking lot.
What Should You Bring?
Packing for your campus apartment or room can be a lot of fun, but be mindful not to pack too much. There is limited space in the residence halls and there is no extra storage available. To conserve space, it is a good idea to consider sharing larger items with your roommates. You should contact them before coming to campus, so that you can agree upon the items that each of you will be responsible for bringing. We encourage you to visit the Housing website for a detailed list of items to bring, items to share and prohibited items.
Please continue to check your student email for future communications including arrival time confirmation and building specific move-in information. If you have any questions please email email@example.com with the subject line “Spring 2023 Move-In”.
Parking Hangtag Pick-up for Piedmont North, University Commons and University Lofts Parking Decks
University Housing residents that require parking MUST apply for parking online before picking up a hangtag. University Lofts, Patton Hall and Greek Housing residents must apply for University Lofts parking permits from Auxiliary Services (parking.gsu.edu); residents from all other buildings may apply for parking from the University Housing Website, myhousing.gsu.edu.
Parking hangtags will be checked in as packages to the mailroom of the building where you have paid to park. You will receive an email notification from the mailroom that you have a package ready to pick up.
Packing for your campus apartment or room can be a lot of fun, but be mindful not to pack too much. Space is limited in residence halls, and no extra storage is available outside of your assigned space. To conserve space, it is a good idea to consider sharing larger items with your roommate(s). You should contact your roommate(s) prior to move-in so you can agree upon the items that each of you will be responsible for bringing.
Each resident is designated a bed, a dresser, a desk and chair, and a wardrobe or a closet based on room layout. All furnishings must stay in the room all year. Residents may not remove or store any item for any reason. Each dining area in University Commons or University Lofts is furnished with a table and chairs.
Don't forget to bring these important Covid-care items: masks, gloves, sanitizer, disinfecting wipes and disinfecting cleaner.
*Note: Personal appliances that are used for cooking may only be used in the kitchen. No open-flame device is allowed in the residence halls. Appliances that generate high temperatures, such as George Foreman grills and deep-fat fryers, should be used near the stove top with the exhaust hoods on.
When packing for a campus apartment or room, remember not to bring too much. Space is limited.
*Note: Individual health and air quality requirements vary greatly between students. Students should plan to bring small, portable units (dehumidifiers, humidifiers, air purifiers, fans, etc.) for personal comfort.
Rather than doubling up, consider sharing larger items with your roommate(s).
*Note: Each kitchen in University Commons is equipped with a refrigerator, dishwasher, sink, microwave and stove. University Lofts provides the same appliances, except for a microwave.
*Note: Consider purchasing renters insurance. Renters insurance is not required, but we recommend it.
