Information for Incoming First-Year Students

As a new student at Emory, you probably have several questions about the residence halls, how to sign-up for housing, what to bring, when to move in, and MORE! Below you should find answers to some common questions and concerns. In addition, the links to the left will guide you to other information you may find useful. If you have further questions contact housing@emory.edu or call 404.727.7631.

We are excited for all first-year students to be a part of First Year at Emory! This year, we have five exciting themes available in our residence halls;

Citizenship: Your Passport to Emory
Living Green: Sustainability in the 21st Century
Global Cultures: Bringing the World to Emory

Leadership
Creativity & Innovation

Social Entrepreneurship

These themed communities will give you the opportunity to explore each of these topics through focused programming and interaction with fellow students with similar interests. Learn more about our Living-Learning Communities here, or each specific themed community by clicking on the links above.

How to Apply for Housing
Incoming first-year students can apply for housing through our online housing selection application. Housing applications will be available online coinciding with the release of regular Admission decisions (no later than April 1, 2014.)

Choosing Your Residence Hall
As a first-year student, you do not have the option to choose a specific building as we make assignments with the goal to create a well-rounded and diverse community of students. You do however, have the option to let us know your preference for the type of hall and floor you are assigned to; we will honor these preferences as we are able. Regardless of which residence hall you are assigned, your first year at Emory is sure to be a memorable one.

Living-Learning Communities
To help us better understand your interests and to help you start thinking critically about your first year, we ask incoming first-year students to fill out an FYE questionnaire (that will be available online after the regular Admission decisions and no later than April 1, 2014).

This questionnaire asks about your academic interests, extracurricular and program interests, and goals you have for your first year. You may also indicate your interest in specific living-learning communities through this questionnaire. Please budget between 15-20 minutes to complete this survey. Questions may be directed to Ryan Roche at ryan.roche@emory.edu.

Reservation Fee
Upon acceptance of admission to the University, all incoming first-year students must submit a $475 non-refundable enrollment deposit to the Office of Undergraduate Admission. Two hundred dollars of the $475 enrollment fee will be used as your housing reservation fee. Although you can complete your housing application before sending in this deposit, a housing assignment will not be made until the fee is paid. This reservation fee will be forfeited if you do not attend Emory and fail to notify us by the July 30th deadline.
