Resources for International Students

We understand that there are many different challenges facing international students right now. We have several online resources available to assist in planning and decision-making:

  • International Student Housing Intention Form. If you are able to travel for the Fall 2020 semester, Georgia Tech Housing can accommodate those with a fall housing assignment as early as July 24. All international students must declare their intention by August 3 via the resources section of the My Housing portal.
  • Additional guidance about move-in, late arrival, and housing cancellations for international students is available here.
  • Immigration Information Sessions: 

The Office of International Education (OIE) may need to be consulted with any detailed questions about a student’s specific immigration or visa situation. Note: OIE is currently experiencing a very high volume of email inquiries and phone calls. Response and wait times are longer than usual for individual inquiries, but additional guidance is coming together quickly to allow students’ questions to be answered as soon as possible. Students are encouraged to register for a group advising session. Group Advising Sessions are held three times each week. Students should use their Georgia Tech email to sign up for a session here.
