It wasn’t so long ago that moving to college meant showing up at your residence hall with a hot pot and a box of mismatched bedding and towels.
Today’s University of Georgia students have more housing options in Athens than ever before – and that means more logistics around getting your student and all their possessions safely to school.
Why Does Everyone Want to Attend the University of Georgia?
Everybody loves a winner – and it seems that 2023 college applicants are no exception.
Although Georgia is the first team to win back-to-back national championships since the CFP began in 2014, UGA also delivers a strong showing in academics as well, making it an increasingly popular choice among high school seniors and transfers alike.
As of the writing of this article, 26,000 early admission applications had been received. Even with the steadily increasing applicant pool, the university strives to maintain a balanced incoming class – 80/20 between Georgia residents and out of state students.
Planning Your Move to Off Campus UGA Housing
No matter where new dorm or off campus apartment residents arrive from – whether it’s Clarke County or California, parents and students need a moving plan. The days of loading up the family station wagon with a few odds and ends are over.
As the official mover of The University of Georgia, we’ve been specializing in moving students into and back out of on and off campus housing.
Before you pack the first box, you’ll want to check out all the updated tips in the Essential Guide to Navigating UGA Off Campus Housing.
Still Living the Dorm Life?
Parents of prospective students who plan to live in on-campus housing also need a solid moving plan. Dorm room decor is over-the-top and can rival a small apartment move in some cases.
If you’re thinking that having furniture provided by UGA Housing makes moving easier, check out some of the dorm rooms featured on the official Instagram account @ugahousing.
