Please note that the information you provide here does not guarantee the type of community in which you will be placed. We try to place candidates where they indicate they will work best, but we must balance this with the need to fill all open positions and meet the staffing needs of our residence halls.
Candidates often ask us if they can specify in which residence hall they prefer to be placed. With the exception of Living Learning Communities and senior apartments, UGAs are placed in a residence hall within their House community or on a FYRE floor that feeds their House community. In placing candidates, we seek to find the best match between a candidates skills and talents and the needs of the residents in the various residential communities. The outcome of this process may be that a candidate is placed in a residence hall that is not their first preference but that nonetheless is a great fit for them.
In the case of special housing needs due to a medical condition, we will do everything possible to accommodate you where your needs can be met, provided that appropriate documentation has been filed with the Housing Office.
We encourage you to let us know—on the application and/or in your interview—where you think you will be most effective as a UGA. At the same time, we ask that you keep an open mind about your eventual placement and remain open to being a UGA in any location.
If you will only be on campus for one or two terms next year, you can still apply. All D-plans are considered; just be sure to indicate on your application which terms you will be on and officially enrolled.
