University Housing

University Housing at Georgia Southern University operates twelve housing units providing a living-learning environment for approximately 6,400 students and offering a variety of facilities, services, and programs on the Statesboro and Armstrong campuses.  Georgia Southern University strives to provide a positive environment conducive to the development and academic pursuits of its residents. Residence hall living provides social interaction and events to heighten a student's sense of belonging, understanding of others, and how to live with others in a common space. Included in learning experiences are floor meetings, social events, programs on life skills, communication and conflict management, wellness topics that support academic success and understanding others, leadership positions in hall government, and a completion of a roommate agreement. These experiences provide students the opportunity to grow, achieve, find autonomy, and practice decision-making. With a staff of more than 250 full-time and student employees, University Housing is committed to assisting students in making a smooth transition to college life.

Communities in the Residence Halls

Living in a residence hall means being part of a residential community focused on your academic success at Georgia Southern University. Each of the twelve residence halls offer different communities based upon the students living there, the nature of the building and sometimes the specialized programs or floors that are based around themes, academic programs or other learning initiatives. Each year, University Housing, in partnership with other campus offices, colleges, and faculty members, provides support to the students living in our residential communities in different ways. On campus housing is available on the Statesboro Campus and Armstrong Campus.  Housing is not available on the Liberty Campus.

More information about the different community options each year is available on the housing website at http://auxiliary.georgiasouthern.edu/housing/.
