About Us

Housing and Residence Life is passionate about the Georgia Tech residential student experience. With 97% of all first-year students choosing to live on campus, we create spaces and opportunities for Yellow Jackets to grow and connect, from their first day of college through their graduate studies. We are proud to support our students’ personal development and academic endeavors while providing a safe and comfortable living environment. 

Our department is a large and complex organization supporting over 8,700 on-campus residents among 49 traditional halls, suites and apartments, some of which were constructed for the 1996 Summer Olympics. Our team of 200+ professional staff and 300+ student staff from six departments support residents directly and indirectly with their unique talents. We are housed within the Student Engagement and Well-Being division that includes many student service offices.


Housing and Residence Life offers quality, safe, well-maintained residential facilities. We encourage, promote, and facilitate customer focused programs and services that attract students to our facilities and to Georgia Tech. We provide physical, programmatic, and technological systems to enhance the quality of life on campus, to support the academic needs of resident students and to complement the academic goals of the Institute.
