Break Stay Sign-Up

There are three different options for break housing to participate in. In order to participate, student must be enrolled and living on campus for both Summer 2019 Term B and Fall 2019 semesters at Georgia Southern University. You must sign up for Break Housing by Thursday July 25, 2019 at 5:00 pm to be eligible to participate.

        • Option 1 – Storage Only in Same Room – If you are in the same bedroom assignment for Summer Term B 2019 and Fall 2019, then you may leave your belongings in your bedroom, turn in your key and check out with a staff member after you have moved all belongings to your bedroom. This includes all kitchen and bathroom items. Please note that University Housing is not responsible for property left in the room during the break period. You must sign up using the link below. Cost – $25
        • Option 2 – Break Stay in Same Room – If you are in the same bedroom assignment for Summer Term B 2019 and Fall 2019 then you may occupy your room for the entire break period (July 26 – August 16) and use your room. Staff will be in to clean the common areas (bathrooms, kitchen, etc.), so you are advised to keep as many belongings in your bedroom as possible. Cost – $400
        • Option 3 – Break Stay in Different Room – If you are in a different room on campus for Summer Term B 2019 and Fall 2019, you will stay in your current Summer room assignment until Monday, August 5th. On August 5th, from 12:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m., you will then move to your Fall 2019 housing assignment.  To start the check in process you will report to the housing office in Watson Commons for your key. Please note: if you cannot move during the scheduled time to your Fall 2019 housing assignment, you CANNOT participate in Break Housing. You must move completely out of your Summer 2019 housing assignment by 5:00 p.m. on August 5th and turn in your keys at the housing office. Cost – $400.

The Break Stay form has been taken down for processing.  If you would like to sign up, please email your resident director for approval.
