First Year Live-On Requirement

Living on campus at the College of Coastal Georgia allows students to engage in the numerous educational and social benefits in our residence hall, Lakeside Village, that may not be realized by those living off campus. The College of Coastal Georgia requires all traditional first year students to live on campus.

As an incoming traditional first year student, you are required to live on-campus in student housing. For certain instances, an exemption may be granted (please see the exemption form for those instances). Your request will be reviewed by the Office of Residence Life and Housing and this Office will notify you of our decision. The First Year Live-On Requirement Exemption Form is available here.

For additional information regarding requests for exemption, contact the Office of Residence Life and Housing at 912-279-5815 or Residence.Life@ccga.edu.

The First Year Live-On Requirement will be violated if the student:

  • Provides false or misleading information in connection with a request for exemption,
  • Fails to comply by not applying for housing and/or assuming occupancy in a residence hall

Failure to comply with the First Year Live-On Requirement Policy will result in the student automatically being signed up for housing and billed.
