Yes! We have many students that are willing and able to have perspective students stay with them for a day or weekend. Please contact Veronica@GTHillel.org if you are interested in a visit!
Georgia Tech Hillel is located in the heart of midtown Atlanta surrounded by the beautiful and vibrant city of Atlanta. Our location provides many unique opportunities to get connected to the greater Atlanta arts, culture, and social scene. While Georgia Tech Hillel does not yet have a building, we use any and every space in the student center to have our weekly programming. The Georgia Tech campus and city of Atlanta are the backdrop for our close knit, accepting, and diverse Jewish community on campus!
There are no kosher dining options with university dining, however all meals served by Hillel are kosher.
There are no membership fees. Any student can come to as many or as few events as they would like. Most events are free to all in attendance!
While most programs are free for students, Hillel is able to stay open and alive due to the generosity of our parents and alumni. Please consider making a donation to our wonderful organization!
Shabbat at Hillel at Georgia Tech is a unique and wonderful experience. We have many Shabbat opportunities from students hosting Shabbat in their own homes, going into the local Jewish Community, or joining GA Tech for Shabbat. Students get the opportunity to take ownership of their Shabbat experience, which makes it very special. GT Hillel also offers multiple Shabbat experiences throughout the year.

Hillel observes all major Jewish holidays. From High Holiday services and eating in our sukkah to lighting the hanukiah on Hanukkah and singing the four questions at Passover, Hillel at Georgia Tech does it all! We are lucky to be so close to the Atlanta Jewish community that provides so many opportunities for our students during the holidays as well.
Hillel leads a free trip to Israel through Taglit Birthright in December. Our students are able to experience Israel with their fellow Jewish Jackets and then come back to campus and share that experience with others.
