R House
UGA's Research Living Learning Community

Enhance your love of research through the Research House—R House—one of the University of Georgia’s newest living learning communities.

Opening in fall 2018 for incoming first-year students of any major or academic discipline, the R House living learning community will offer 28 undergraduates the opportunity to hone their individual interests through faculty-mentored research.

R House students will live, study, and share common spaces in Building 1516, one of UGA’s newest residence halls and a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold certified building conveniently located on East Campus. Students who participate in R House will have roommates from the R House living learning community.

The R House is administered by CURO, UGA’s Center for Undergraduate Research Opportunities.

R House benefits include:

  • An Introduction to Research seminar. This one-hour fall seminar course will introduce R House students to undergraduate research. Through the course, we will assist you in both narrowing your research interests and finding a faculty mentor. This course will be co-taught by two faculty members—representing both the sciences and humanities—who have received UGA’s highest teaching award, the Meigs Distinguished Teaching Professorship.
  • A $1,000 stipend. A guaranteed CURO Research Assistantship in the spring semester will help you pursue your research interests with your faculty mentor.
  • Research events. These events will allow you to network with faculty researchers and current UGA students engaged in faculty-mentored undergraduate research projects.
  • Mentoring and assistance. An experienced resident assistant (RA) will give you an on-the-ground person who has conducted undergraduate research. In addition to the RA, a dedicated graduate teaching assistant will also be available to help guide you through the research process.
  • Social events. These events will enhance your sense of community with the other R House students.

The R House application will open in mid-January 2018. Please come back to this site to access the application.

Find your home—and your UGA community—at R House.
