Congratulations on your recent acceptance to Georgia Southwestern State University.
Southwestern freshmen students will live in Southwestern Oaks. Transfer and Upperclassmen students will live in Southwestern Pines or Southwestern Magnolia.
If you will be living on campus, please complete the following items:
Students who are over the age of 21 or have over 60 hours of earned credit are exempt from the housing requirement. There is no need to submit either form.
Housing assignments will only be given to those who have been accepted by Georgia Southwestern State University or the South Georgia State College Entry Program, have submitted an official housing application, and have paid the $50 non-refundable housing application fee.
The $50 housing application fee is non-refundable. It will not be returned to individuals who do not secure a housing assignment (due to their lack of acceptance or failure to complete a housing application) nor to individuals who choose not to occupy their assigned room (i.e. enrolled students who choose to live off-campus or those who choose not to matriculate).
For questions regarding these forms or the housing application process:
Incoming GSW freshmen should contact Jamie Lineberry in the Office of Admissions at email@example.com or 229-928-1273.
All other applicants should contact the Office of Residence Life at firstname.lastname@example.org or 229-931-2375.
Being a RA provides opportunities to develop valuable leadership and communication skills, to shape an environment that supports students' academic and personal development, to make friends that will last a lifetime, and to define yourself!
The RA position is extremely important to the Department of Residence Life. We want to ensure RAs have the skills, interests, and experiences that will help them thrive in this challenging and enjoyable position.
Selection decisions are based on information from the application, the time spent in the RA Leadership class, the interview process, and references. Solely filling out the application does not guarantee that a candidate will be selected for the RA class or the RA role.
