If you have yet to complete a housing contract for the Spring 2012 semester, please visit this link:http://www.westga.edu/reslife/index_7762.php.  This will allow students to gather more information about our residence halls and make choices about which facility they would like to live in.  If you haven't submitted a housing contract to date, we will be more than happy to provide you with a residence hall assignment based on where we have space available for the Spring 2012 term.
