Housing:  About Our Department

Housing Mission

The Office of Housing and Residence Life creates a safe living environment which promotes holistic learning and personal growth among residents. This environment fosters independent thinking and accountable personal-decision making. Through our programs and services, we challenge students to be engaged, community-minded and academically successful.

Housing Core Values

  • Providing residents with the support and resources to promote successful transitions and prove conducive to academic and personal success.
  • We strive to ensure that students are civically aware and engaged by providing opportunities for involvement with East Georgia State College and the greater Swainsboro community.
  • We encourage students to understand, appreciate, and promote awareness of diverging views, opinions and differing backgrounds through intentional programs and educational conversations.
  • We promote an ethic of team work that connects our department with others in support of the mission of East Georgia State College.
  • We collaborate strategically and closely with the College Police Department, Corvias, IT Services, and Plant Operations to ensure that student residences are safe, secure and well maintained.
