8 & 9




Small Group Traditions Tour



Movie Night





First-year move-in is August 8 and 9, and we can’t wait to welcome you to Georgia Tech! Details on move-in are being carefully worked out so we can provide a safe and smooth experience for all of our new Yellow Jackets.

Learn more about the check-in process, choosing a move-in time, safety precautions, packing lists, parking, and more.

Connect to Resources

Throughout the Week of Welcome, students will be able to participate in virtual and in-person workshops from campus partners and resource offices that cover topics like co-curricular opportunities, ways to get involved on campus, life skills, and how to take care of your needs such as mental and physical health while at Tech.

During this week you can also explore one of the most critical resources: food! Campus dining is available beginning the first day of move-in.

Connect to Your Floor Community

The week’s events will allow students to build connections within their roommate pairs and residence hall group, their circle of contact for the foreseeable future. Resident Assistants (RAs) will hold their first floor meeting on August 9, supplies will be provided for craft nights and movie nights, and groups can come together to compete against other halls in a window display contest throughout the week.

Connect to Georgia Tech

Take this first week to explore and connect to a campus and a community you’ll soon call home. Get a special introduction to the traditions of Georgia Tech during the small group Traditions Tour on Tuesday. The week ends with Georgia Tech’s Convocation, a First-Year’s momentous official entry into the campus community before classes start.

Connected but Protected

While this isn’t the first week of college most imagined, we’re doing our best to safely provide you with rich opportunities to find connection and feel welcome at Georgia Tech. With the health of our Yellow Jackets in mind, most elements of the Week of Welcome will be virtual or have virtual alternatives, self-guided, or small group activities done with hall groups to minimize contact. Additionally, our custodial teams have outlined a comprehensive plan to keep common surfaces clean throughout the week of welcome and beyond. All residents will receive a wellness kit in their rooms with a mask, hand sanitizer, thermometer and more to support their health. Residents will also have access to a mobile app to help space out move-in and dining opportunities with specific time slots.
