Long-term housing plans
The University has committed to housing 70% of graduate students. As of September 2013, the Lakeside Apartment Complex is scheduled to open in Fall 2014. The GSG can confirm that Butler Apartments will close permanently in Fall 2014, coincident with the opening of the new Lakeside complex. Stanworth will also close to graduate students in Fall 2014.
11/7/13: The Exec Board would like to make some clarifications regarding the closing of Butler Apartments and our role as advocates for graduate housing. Please see the following statement.
You can access the Housing Draw website by following this link.
For students who are unsuccessful in the on-campus housing draw, the University has created a website to assist students in finding off-campus housing. The site also contains other resources with links to other sites related to housing (avaible under the “Other Resources” menu item). Also see Tiger Trade, where many students post sublet information.
Graduate Housing Policy Committee
The GSG and each of the residential policy committees meet regularly with the Housing Office and the Graduate School to discuss housing policies and procedures including the draw. Interested students should email the gsg to join the GSG Housing Committee.
As of the 2009-2010 academic year, the University requires all apartment residents in graduate housing to obtain renter’s insurance.
