Hello Blazer Nation. 

Hello Students and Parents,

The time for Housing Selection for students who are currently living on campus and other upperclass students to return for Fall 2023 is finally here. We have reserved over 1000 spaces for our upperclass students! This year, there are spaces for returners in Centennial, Hopper, Georgia, and Lowndes Hall. If you are planning on applying for on-campus housing, please read carefully and act quickly.  

Thank you,
Housing and Residence Life

The application will open in the Housing Portal on Monday, February 6th  at 10am and will close on Friday, February 10th at 11:59pm.  Students will not need to pay an application fee or housing deposit again during this process as long as they currently live on campus.  This is ONLY an application process and students will not select their housing assignment during this time frame.  This does NOT lock a student into a housing contract. It is imperative that you check your emails often to be upadted on the correct infromation.

On March 1st, students will receive an email with steps on how to select a space and their assigned timeslot.  If a student goes through the selection process and signs a contract, they are locked into the contract for the academic year (Fall 2023 and Spring 2024). You must verify your group by 1pm on March 1st, 2023 or it will be done for you, after verifying your group you wil not be able to make any additional changes.

People who apply for themed communities may have additional steps sent to them directly. You will recieve specific infromation if you got accepted into a themed communitiy February 22nd, 2023.

If you have any questions concerning returning student housing selection in regards to the application process, please contact the Housing Office at housing@valdosta.edu or by calling us at 229-333-5920. Details regarding which specific floors will be for returners and specific types of spots will be released early March. 

ROOMMATE GROUPS.  This is a new part of our housing application process.  Students will need to identify groups of students they wish to live with, in either groups of 2 or 4.  A student can only request another student with an application on file for the same process.  For example, Joe and Dave want to be roommates.  Joe is working on his housing application but Dave has not submitted one yet.  Joe will not be able to request Dave.  Once Dave does his application, he can request to be in a roommate group with Joe and it will send a notification to Joe.  Joe then accepts Dave’s request and they are in a roommate group together.  Dave is the designated Group Leader as the student who created the group.  Dave can also invite Rick and Bob to be in the roommate group and once they accept, they can be a verified group of 4.  

Student selection process opens March 6th- March 10th.

Timeslots will be for March 6th-March 10th between 10m and 5pm each day. The entire room selection process will close on March 10th, 2023  If a student misses their timeslot, they will be placed on the waitlist and will open on March 25th, 2023.
