Welcome to Residence Life at Oglethorpe University!

At Oglethorpe University, we strive to create a living and learning community for students that supports the academic mission of the institution. We recognize that a significant part of the collegiate experience occurs outside of the classroom. As such, Residence Life offers a variety of programs and services aimed at promoting academic success and fostering personal development. Our residential community will be your home away from home as you pursue your academic and personal interests. The following web pages will provide you with the information necessary to prepare you for living on campus.

A Residence Life professional staff member is available Monday-Friday 9:00 am-5:00 pm by walk-in or by appointment, while after hours the Residence Life staff member on-call can be reached at (805) 874-2732. The Residence Life Office is located in the Campus Life Suite of the Student Commons in the Turner Lynch Campus Center. Please contact the Residence Life Office at residencelife@oglethorpe.edu or (404) 364-8520 with any additional questions.
