Housing & Residence Life

Residence Life This Fall

In order to ensure a smooth transition and to limit the potential spread of COVID-19, MGA Housing & Residence Life has developed a plan for a staggered move-in for Fall 2020. As was the case this past spring, when residents had to move out early, we will use JotForms to extend the move-in period from 1 day to 6 days. The links to these JotForms will be sent out to all registered residential students via their MGA email address the last week of July. Instructions on how a new student can log into his or her MGA email account can be found here

  • Utilizing the JotForm, students and parents will be able to select a move-in time that is conducive to their schedule and access to transportation. 
  • Move-in appointments will be scheduled in 15-minute increments to avoid having more than 10 people on any wing of any hall at any one time period. 
  • This plan then allows 2.5 hours for a student to get checked in then moved in. 
  • Students will receive MGA branded facemasks and hand sanitizer this year.

 MGA sincerely regrets that volunteers and non-family visitors cannot be a part of the move-in experience this fall due to COVID-19. Students are asked to bring no more than 2 family members with them to campus to aid in moving in. Family members will need to supply their own facemasks if they choose to wear one. Below is the anticipated schedule for move-in days by campus:

Macon Campus:

Lakeview Pointe: 8am to 9pm August 7th-12th
University Pointe: 8am to 9:30pm August 7th-12th

What are the benefits of living on one of MGA's residential campuses?

Compared to students who live at home with parents or who commute from other locations, residential students demonstrate:

  • A higher level of interaction with their faculty members (Kuh, Gonyea, and Palmer 2001)w
  • A higher level of involvement in co-curricular activities including clubs, service projects, internships, and study abroad (Kuh, Gonyea, and Palmer 2001).
  • An increased sense of belonging and affiliation with the University (O’Toole, Peterson and Wetzel, 1999 ; Newbold et al., 2011)
  • Greater access to counselors, advisers, peers, and other resources designed to support student’s academic success (Newbold, Mehta, Forbus, P. (2011)
  • More social connections, (Kuh, Gonyea, and Palmer 2001)
  • Increases in personal development (Kuh, Gonyea, and Palmer 2001)
  • More academic commitment and focus (Nonis, Philhours, and Hudson, 2006)
  • Greater academic success, i.e. higher GPAs (Nonis, Philhours, and Hudson, 2006)
