Meals & Housing


The Freshman College program fee includes the cost of a participant’s seven-day summer meal plan for the duration of this summer semester. Participants will be assigned the Freshman College meal plan and make payment for the plan through Athena.

Meal Plans for the Academic Year
Meal plans for the 2017-2018 academic year (after Freshman College concludes) are available by calling 706-542-7130 or by visiting UGA Food Services.


Freshman College On-Campus Residency
Participants in Freshman College will live in Building 1516 during the summer and transition to Oglethorpe House for the fall and spring semesters. You can learn more about both options on our website.

Housing Registration
Students must register for academic year housing on The Dawg House. As University Housing receives students accepted into Freshman College, students will see a Freshman College term appear on The Dawg House to search for roommates. Students are responsible for paying a $35 non-refundable registration fee for the academic year; there is no additional charge for the summer.

Participants will select their fall and spring space in Oglethorpe House and will be assigned with the same roommate to Building 1516 for the summer.

Duration of Assignment
All participants are housed in Building 1516 for the duration of the Freshman College program. Students will transition to their fall assignment at the end of Freshman College. The residence hall will be closed for the interim between Freshman College and the start of the fall semester.

Searching for a Roommate
Are you looking for a roommate? Once admitted, log on to The Dawg House and proceed through the Freshman College term. You will be able to search for other Freshman College participants. Create a group of up to three other students or join a group to have the opportunity to live together as roommates/suitemates in O-House. Roommates selected for O-House will be assigned together for the summer in Building 1516.

Information will be sent to your UGA email account about the housing selection process. Room selection will occur in mid-May. A housing contract will be sent to your UGA email address shortly after selecting a room. Students are only required to sign one contract that includes summer, fall, and spring semesters. Students under 18 will require a parent/guardian’s signature to complete the housing process.
