Information for Transfer 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.

Please note that all second-year transfer students are required to live on campus and are guaranteed housing. Please note that "second-year" is a university designation, unrelated to academic credits; typically it is based upon the number of semesters that have passed since first enrolling/attending a university or your high school graduation date. For housing purposes, the determination made by the offices of Residence Life and Housing should be considered final. If you are unsure of your status, please contact us at housing@emory.edu for confirmation before making alternate plans.

Reservation Fee
All incoming students (with the exception of business and nursing students) submitted a $475 Joint Admission/Housing deposit upon acceptance of admission to the University. It is not necessary to submit another $200 if the $475 has been paid. Two hundred dollars of the joint deposit will be automatically transferred to your housing account and used as your housing reservation fee.
