Mike Black pictureWelcome to the Institute community!

Whether this is your first experience with higher education or another step in a long family tradition, you know that this is a critical passage for your son or daughter. As they take on new challenges, they prepare for full-fledged adulthood. It is our privilege to participate in that process.

Georgia Institute of Technology's Department of Housing mission, "... is to enhance the quality of life on campus, to support the academic needs of resident students and to compliment the academic goals of the institute ..." Your student will be invited to become a full partner in the endeavor. National research and our experience show that students who live on campus perform better academically and graduate earlier than their off campus counterparts. I ask that you encourage your student to take full advantage of this marvelous opportunity.

The staff in the Department of Housing will do our very best to ensure that your son or daughter has the best possible living-learning experience. If we can assist you in any way please let us know.

Michael D. Black
Executive Director of Housing
