4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Rutherford was great to live in because it is one of the most spacious dorms.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The University of Georgia offers a wonderful atmosphere for living on campus. A really nice quality is that while typically, you share a room with a roommate, the campus offers many spaces to find solitude to study.

Campus Housing: Living on campus makes life so much easier! Close to dorms, dining halls, and anything you'll need.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is definitely a benefit since it's a much faster way to go to class. You are able to meet new people in the building and get to know different types of people.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The actual conditions of the dorms are okay, they are what you expect them to be for a first year college dorm. However, the social aspect makes you never want to leave the dorms. You are feet or floors away from your best friends and its the only time you will ever get to live like that. Live in a high rise for the best social aspect. Live in a low-rise to be the closest to campus, and live in East campus if you want to have luxury living. East Campus is nice for those who want to be closest to the gym, be next to the best dining hall ECV, and have your own bathroom and a more spacious dorms. However, there is a trade off to living in each dorm. If you live on east campus you miss out on the social aspect that you get in the high rises, but if you live in the high rises, you're not as close to a gym and have a lot smaller living quarters and community style bathrooms. It is what you make it and you get to choose what matters most to you when picking a dorm. Put your deposit in for housing as soon as you get into UGA to secure the best opportunity of getting your desired dorm room.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Each hall has an RA whose two sole purposes in life are to answer any questions residents have, and to try to keep order in the building-neither being an easy task. Each hall has its own parties and socials every so often, and there is definitely a sense of community within every hall. And, get this-the bathrooms are usually very clean, except during football game weekends. One time, a bathroom in Creswell was shut down because it had become a biological hazard over one weekend, which is gross, but it was up and running by Monday. The maintenance staff in the dorms are very nice, as well. All the dorms now have air-conditioning. If you are lucky enough to have an individual unit in your room, like Creswell residents for example, count your blessings. The dorms with central air are usually on the warm side. You can open your windows, but this does not always help.

The Myers, Rutherford, and Mary Lyndon quad is a very popular place to hang out and play ultimate Frisbee. Even before renovations, Myers was a very popular dorm. It is also close to Snelling, which is a big plus. If you live in an all-female dorm, especially Brumby, it can seem to be overrun with sorority girls at times. Many people complain that they feel like they are the only girls on campus who didn't rush. The East Campus Village was designed to resemble apartments in an effort to keep students on campus. They offer 1,200 beds, and preference is given to students who have spent the most time in a dorm.
