Challenge participants will be staying in Perry/Matheson Residence Hall on Georgia Tech’s campus for the duration of the program. Boys and girls will be on separate floors with key access only to their assigned floor. We will not receive individual room assignments from Georgia Tech Housing until early June. For details on the dorms, visit here to see a 360-degree view of Fields and Hopkins dorms where Challenge 2021 participants will reside.
Challenge does not take roommate requests because participants are single occupancy to practice safe physical distancing. Challenge is a residential program, which means that all participants are required to live in the dorm. Face covering is required at all times on GT Campus.
