University Villas Relocation
The safety, health and well-being of each and every resident is a matter of utmost importance for University Housing and Georgia Southern University as a whole. We sincerely apologize for this late notification of an issue affecting your housing assignment for the remainder of the spring semester that requires your immediate attention.
Georgia Southern University is closing certain units in University Villas student housing this semester. University facilities staff found various structural concerns in select apartment units within University Villas. Out of an abundance of caution, the University has taken the steps of closing the affected units and is working to relocate students to other spaces in University Housing or at off-campus apartment communities.
All students identified as living in impacted units in University Villas will have to be relocated. We are working now to finalize housing options this semester for all students. Email communication has been sent to students identified as living in an impacted unit.
Reason for Relocation
We sincerely apologize for this late notification of an issue affecting your housing assignment for the spring semester that requires your immediate attention. Georgia Southern University is closing certain units in University Villas for the remainder of the semester. Following a series of inspections that took place over spring break, the University felt the best course of action was to close select spaces due to structural issues.
Please help us with this process by filling out the form on the Options for Relocation tab.
Georgia Southern officials are committed to helping accommodate all students impacted by this situation. Final details for those wishing to stay on campus are still being determined. Some limited options are available on campus and as many students as can be will be relocated on campus at no additional charge or with a credit to their housing account if their new room rate is lower than their current room rate. Other students will be relocated to suitable space off campus as those spaces become identified, also at no additional charge. All students are strongly encouraged to monitor communication to learn more regarding the moving logistics.
Out of an abundance of caution for your safety, Georgia Southern University is forced to immediately close some of the units in University Villas. An engineering review of your building’s structure has raised concerns, so the university is taking this step as a precaution to ensure the safety of our students.
