Application Process:

University Housing is accepting applications for students wishing to live on at the Statesboro Campus.  All first-year students completing their academic year applications by March 1 will receive priority placement.

All first-year students are required to live on campus for their first year of enrollment.  Students who begin in the summer or fall are required to live on campus for the Fall and Spring terms, students who begin in the spring are only required to live on-campus for the Spring Semester.  First Year students can apply for housing approximately two days after they have been admitted (applications are live on November 8) and the first priority deadline is March 1st.  Students who completed their housing application by March 1st will receive their fall housing information by April 1st.

Students will apply for housing by using the portal. If you have never logged into the portal you will need to click on the First Time Users link on that page in order to establish your account. Once logged into you will need to look for the Campus Life tile and then the On-Campus Housing Portal link.

Special Accommodation Needs

The Offices of Disability Services and Housing and Residence Life 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 Voluntary Declaration of Disability 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 Offices of Disability Services and Housing and Residence Life.
