University Housing invites upper-class students who currently live on campus, to return to campus housing for 2021-2022. On-line applications began on November 1, 2020. Room selection will be held later in the spring. During the application process you will complete the application and form roommate groups. You will not preference any room styles as you will choose your actual room during room selection.
In order to complete the application, you must have your My.GeorgiaSouthern credentials. Just click the link at the bottom of this page to begin the online application process!
Housing Renewal will be an online event this year beginning on February 4th for certain groups. General housing renewal will be on February 11th. Check your email for more information.
Upperclass students will be able to select their own room in Compass Point and University Crossings. University Terrace will not be available in the application process as Georgia Southern University will no longer be managing that property following the conclusion of the Spring 2021 semester.
Theme Community Housing Selection: On-going
Students interested in living in one of our theme communities are invited to come to the University Housing Administrative Office (located on the second floor of Compass Point 7000) between the hours of 9am-5pm. Once housing renewal information has been sent out, students can express interest in a theme community as an individual or as a group. Please contact Megan Carlisle by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students will have 2 communities to choose from:
- Greek Housing
- Open to students who are active members of Fraternity and Sorority Life organizations.
- R.I.S.E – Residents in the Sophomore Experience
- Open to students in their second year of college
coursework, this community helps students make
the most of their sophomore year through peer
networking, personal exploration activities, and
professional development workshops.
- Open to students in their second year of college
What do you do need to before you select your housing?
- If you have not done so already, please complete the Fall 2021 – Armstrong Campus Housing application.
- Make plans! We suggest talking to your friends and come up with a few different options.
Important Things to know
- Windward Commons is NOT eligible for renewal as it is a community intended for incoming first-year students.
- Rooms designated for our themed housing communities or for special assignment related processes are not available to self-select into. If you do not see your room available during the renewal periods it means that it is not available for self-selection or that someone has already selected the space.
- You will not have to pay the non-refundable application fee.
Special Accommodation Needs
The Student Disability Resource Center and Housing and University Housing work closely together to evaluate requests for housing accommodations for students with disabilities. Students requesting special accommodation or modification for housing must complete and submit the Housing Accommodation Form in order to receive consideration. In addition, the student requesting accommodation must also have a current fully completed housing application on file before the university will evaluate a request for housing accommodation. A request for housing accommodation does not guarantee a housing assignment.
The student should complete Section I and the medical provider should complete Section II. This request must be completed in its entirety before a request will be considered. All requests for accommodation must be made by 60 days before arrival.
Documentation must substantiate a diagnosed impairment that is a current substantial limitation to a major life activity as it relates to housing needs. To ensure the provision of reasonable and appropriate on-campus accommodations for students, the university requires current and comprehensive documentation of the disorder from a current treatment/ assessment professional qualified to make the diagnosis. (Please note, a diagnosis in and of itself does not automatically qualify for requested accommodation.)
This request form must be submitted each year in order to review and renew, as appropriate, accommodations provided through The Student Disability Resource Center and Housing and University Housing.
