Summer will bring a flurry of activity and the to-do lists will continue to grow as you and your student eye the beginning of the school year. Here are some friendly reminders!
All incoming students are required to own laptops that can be carried to class. Barnes & Noble @ Georgia Tech provides educational discounts to students purchasing hardware, software, and peripherals as well as trained personnel who can assist with technological needs. The Department of Housing provides comprehensive support to residents of the on-campus residence halls through ResNet. Residential Technology Advisors (RTAs) provide telephone and onsite technical support to residents. Georgia Tech's Office of Information Technology (OIT) Support Center is available for questions about hardware configurations and can help troubleshoot software applications.
The Department of Housing coordinates the administration, assignment, and activities of all on-campus residence halls. All new students receive housing information with the notification of acceptance sent by the Office of Undergraduate Admission. All housing information (room sizes, rates, building type, policies, etc.) is available online or by calling. We encourage parents to visit the housing website prior to your student's arrival for move-in. This site contains important information on dates and deadlines as well as safety and security.
