Georgia Tech prides itself on the rigor of its academics and research as well as the strength and resilience of its students. As such, we are home to the best and the brightest students from around the country and the world. But even Tech students need help every now and then to achieve success - both academically and personally. And students who thrive here at Tech are often the ones who seek assistance early and maintain a balanced, healthy lifestyle.
The Office of the Vice President for Student Life and Dean of Students promotes development and involvement, and also provides advocacy, information, resources and referrals to help resolve concerns and address emergencies. The Office maintains a 24/7 emergency on-call system to respond to student emergencies – including medical and personal.
