Questions about your visit?

Our tour guides are happy to answer any questions during the tour, but if you have questions before you arrive, please contact us.

Residence Hall Tours

Our daily tours do not include stops at residence halls, but tours of student housing are offered on certain dates throughout the year. Each UGA residence hall has a different style and culture. Freshmen are required to live on campus, so residence hall tours for incoming students are recommended.
