Welcome to Residence Life


We are excited that Berry will become your home for the next four years. As a four-year residential community, we believe that the learning that takes place outside of the classroom is a complement to the lessons learned within the classroom.

Our goal in Residence Life is to provide opportunities to explore: personal development, inter/intra-personal competence, as well as social and civic responsibility. 

The Residence Life Central Office is located in the Ladd Center and is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Room Selection for 2018-2019
Returning students will participate in Online Room Selection Process to select their housing assignment for the 2018-2019 academic year. Information will be shared via email about this important process. 
In order to participate, students must:
 
Complete a Housing Agreement for the 2018-2019 academic year. The agreement can be found at housing.berry.edu. Please encourage your student to read the agreement carefully before they sign. It is important for your student to understand that this contract is binding for the entire 2018-2019 academic year and may not be terminated by the student.
 
Pay a $200 Housing Pre-Payment that will be applied to their housing fee in the fall. This can be paid online at berry.afford.com/paynow?storeid=1179, at the cashier’s window in Hermann Hall, or you may send a check payable to Berry College Business Office, P.O. Box 490129, Mount Berry, GA 30149. Please include your student’s ID number and note “Housing Pre-Payment” on the check.
 
Register for at least 12 credit hours for Fall 2018 during their registration window, from March 26th to April 6th.
