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 Spring and Summer semesters at Georgia Southern University. You must sign up for Break Housing by Thursday May 9, 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 in Freedom’s Landing for Spring 2019 and Summer Term A, 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 – $0
        • Option 2 – Break Stay in Same Room – If you are in the same bedroom assignment in Freedom’s Landing for Spring 2019 and Summer Term A then you may occupy your room for the entire break period (May 10th – May 17th) 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 – $100
        • Option 3 – Break Stay in Different Room – If you are in a different room on campus for Spring 2019 and Summer Term A, you will stay in your current Spring room assignment until Friday, May 17th. On May 17th, from 12:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., you will then move to your Summer Term A housing assignment.  To start the check in process you will report to the Freedom’s Landing clubhouse for your key. Please note: if you cannot move during the scheduled time to your Summer Term A housing assignment, you CANNOT participate in Break Housing. You must move completely out of your Spring 2019 housing assignment by 5:00 p.m. on May 17th and turn in your keys at the Freedom’s Landing front desk. Cost – $100.
        • Option 4 – Students who were relocated off campus from Kennedy Hall or University Villas – more details to come

To sign up for Break Stay, please call the Main Housing Office at 912-478-5406.
