Living Together: Freshman Housing & Meal Plan

Freshman Experience participants live and eat together. All of the residents in these halls are freshmen except for our student staff, who serve as Peer Leaders.

The Freshman Experience has approximately 2,400 bed spaces on east and west campus.

Living in a Freshman Experience residence hall means that you are a part of the Freshman Experience Program. Since many freshmen take a similar course load during the first year, you will be living in communities where your neighbors are also your classmates. Your peers are one of your biggest support networks here at Georgia Tech. You are living with people who are going through similar experiences as you. When you are staying up late studying for tests or writing papers, it is reassuring to know that many of your hall mates are doing the same.

The Freshman Experience Program is located in residence halls on both the east and west sides of campus, and the residence halls on each side of campus are located in close proximity to a dining hall.

The Freshman Meal Plan

Eating together, socializing with your friends, meeting for an evening snack... all of this comes with your Freshman Experience Meal Plan. Meal plans at Georgia Tech allow you access to Brittain and Woodruff Dining Halls, located in East and West campus. These restaurants offer all you care to eat, including made-to-order salads, sandwiches, homemade pasta, omelets, and more. You will also find a full-service bakery, the best pizza in town, vegetarian choices, grilled hamburgers and hot dogs, ice cream, and lots more. Additionally, students can use their meal plan at Buzz-Buy to catch a quick lunch to go and at dinner in the Student Center Food Court.
