New Students

  • Students entering Oglethorpe for the first time will be assigned to a residence hall by the Residence Life staff member based on the completed housing application.
  • Assignments are made once both the application and enrollment deposit are received.
  • Students may request a specific roommate on the housing application, however, all requests must be mutual.
  • While we will make every attempt to honor your housing requests to match you with a compatible roommate, assignment preferences and roommate compatibility are not guaranteed.
  • Housing assignments will be sent to new students by mid-July.
  • To get the process started, you should then go complete the First Time Housing App!
