    👀Sneak Peek: The Buzz About Fall Services On Campus

    As Georgia Tech looks ahead to an in-person fall, the Campus Services team wants to give the community a sneak peek at all of the exciting things planned for when we welcome students back for a new year.

    New Events and a Whole Lot More 🍍WELCOME🍍!

    You may have heard about Week of Welcome before, but when it comes to this action-packed week of events that welcome students new and old back to campus, you ain't seen nothing yet! Find out about all the programs and events that will make you say "WOW" at welcomehome.gatech.edu later this summer.

    Not a First-Year? You'll still have plenty of cool opportunities to look forward to for back-to-school. Stay tuned for details about upperclass move-in, outdoor move night, silent disco, and more!

    See Your Favorites Again.

    Beloved community traditions like RecFest, the Involvement Fair, and Georgia Tech Night at Six Flags are slated to return. Keep your eyes peeled for the announcement of those dates in late summer.

    👯 You can connect once again with Women's, LGBTQIA, Veteran's and other Resource Centers during their open house events with an in-person option! Look for these in the first weeks of class and stay plugged in to their programs year-round.

    🍴🔥 Tech Dining Will Be a Helluva Lot Better.

    We have overhauled and re-engineered dining on campus. Students will be receiving a greater value for their meal plans and enjoy more services designed to make college life as stress-free as possible. This fall you'll see unlimited dining, all new West Village options, expanded hours, and high-quality vegan and vegetarian options. Look for more information to come out this summer at mealplan.gatech.edu.

    As part of the shift to self-operated dining, the second and third floor of West Village will be all-you-care-to-eat, making this community favorite an even better place to take care of your nutritional needs. More details on that will be available in late summer.

    👟Get Your Steps Without The Steps.

    Walking across campus will be a little easier and lot more pleasant in the fall, as work around the Student Center progresses and the path takes shape between it and the other buildings completed this past year as part of the Campus Center project. This will help connect all of campus with an ♿accessible route through the area.

    You'll Be Happy to Call Housing Home.

    The whole community looks forward to welcoming our residents during Move-in. First-year students will move-in Saturday, August 14 and Sunday, August 15, followed by Second-Year students and new Transfer students on Wednesday, August 18, and all other students on Friday, August 20 and Saturday, August 21.

    🔨Residents in campus housing will see refreshes throughout the halls this fall, as facilities teams will spend time this summer on upgrades to lounges and well-being spaces across campus.

    🚍Find Options That Suit Every Commute.

    If you’re commuting to campus or have a hybrid schedule, save money with a short-term parking option OR try regional transit options like MARTA when you take advantage of discount passes for students. Find more information on the best commute options for you at pts.gatech.edu.

    In the fall you'll start to see more information about the new fleet of hybrid-electric buses coming to campus in the following year. We know everyone on campus is *amped* to see more details!

    😷Health & Safety: Still Our Top Priority.

    It will still be important to test, mask, and distance. As we work to return to something like life as it was before the pandemic, we know that some safety measures will still be necessary. Pay attention to signage and other health and safety guidance as you make your way about campus.

    💉 Vaccination for Covid-19 is the key to a safe return in the fall. All faculty, staff and students are encouraged to get vaccinated prior to the start of fall semester so that we can enjoy the community that we have missed this past year.

    Many students will need to submit immunization records. While the requirement for immunization records was waived in 2020, this year it will once again be mandatory. This means returning students who did not submit their records last year will need to, in addition to incoming students.

    This is just a sneak peek of all the wonderful things we look forward to sharing with the community in the fall. Stay tuned to Campus Services' social media for updates throughout the summer.
