The Georgia Board of Regents has approved plans to build an 862-bed residence hall in Atlanta for first-year students at Georgia Tech.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the $117 million, 91,000-square foot housing project will be built on Northside Drive, between 8th and 9th streets in Atlanta near the campus. The site now is a parking lot and a landscaping services yard, according to board documents.

The residence hall is expected to open by the start of the fall 2026 semester.

The additional housing is expected to accommodate Georgia Tech’s projected enrollment growth over the next 10 years, documents state. It also could be used as swing space to house students from other on-campus housing while those buildings are being renovated.

Georgia Tech enrolled 3,582 freshmen in fall 2022, up from 2,953 in fall 2016, according to University System of Georgia data.

The new hall will include study rooms, lounges and kitchens.
