Martin_Hall_new_front-4-11Campus Housing

Welcome to South Georgia Tech’s campus housing. South Georgia Tech is one of only two technical colleges in the State of Georgia that offers campus housing. Martin Hall and James Hall (see campus map) are available for men and women currently enrolled in credit classes at SGTC. Individually designed with you in mind, Americus campus housing offers private, or semi-private dorm rooms. Each room is furnished but we hope you will add your own creative touches to make you feel more at home. The rooms are also designed to provide a quiet place for your study.

Each wing of the dormitories has a Resident Assistant (RA) to help its residents with any situations that may occur. The RA’s are under the direction of the Office of Student Affairs. If you are interested in becoming an RA, please contact Josh Curtin, Assistant Vice President of Student Affairs at

If you would like to reside on the Americus campus at SGTC, complete the Residence Hall Application Packet, attach a $150 housing damage deposit and mail to SGTC Business Office to be considered for the residence halls.

Missing Student Notification Policy

Suspected missing residential students should be promptly reported to the SGTC Campus Safety Office or including not limited to Vice-Presidents, Deans, Residence Hall staff (such as Resident Assistants or Hall Monitors), athletic coaches, and advisors to student organizations. The Campus Safety Authority will promptly notify the local authorities and Campus Safety of the possible missing student. A student is determined to be missing when the Campus Safety has verified that reported information is credible and circumstances warrant declaring the person is missing. Contact will then be made to the missing person’s contact as well as with local law enforcement within 24 hours of the determination that the student is missing by the Director of Campus Safety or his designee.

Students residing in on-campus housing will be informed annually that each student has the option to identify a person designated as a confidential missing person contact to be notified by South Georgia Technical College no later than 24 hours after the time the student is determined to be missing by the officials authorized to make that determination, specifically the Director of Campus Safety. The confidential contact may be a person designated by the student in addition to the declared emergency contact. Should the student not formally declare a separate missing person contact, the emergency contact on record will be notified. The Campus Safety Office advises students that their contact information will be registered confidentially, and that this information will be accessible only to authorized campus officials and local law enforcement and that it may not be disclosed outside of a missing person investigation. In addition to notifying a designated contact person, students that are under 18 years of age and not emancipated, SGTC must notify the custodial parent or guardian within 24 hours of the determination that the student is missing.

Notification of this policy will be made directly to all students residing in campus housing annually and be available in conjunction with the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report that provides information in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Security Crime Statistics Act. All students attempting to register for on[1]campus housing will also be notified of this policy at the time of completing on-campus housing-related documents. All information submitted online during the housing registration process will remain on file and be considered accurate until the student voluntarily provides different information. Students have the opportunity to submit revised missing person contact information at any time by notifying the Campus Safety Office. Email sent to is the preferred method of submission and must include the following: student’s full legal name, SGTC’s 9000 Identification number, Room number, the student’s cell phone number (or best contact phone number), the name and relationship of the person(s) whom the student desires to be contacted, a home and cell phone number for that person(s), and a home address for that person(s). For persons under 18 years of age and not emancipated, a legal parent or guardian will also be notified within 24 hours of the determination that the student is missing
