Progress on campus

The most visible signs of progress at the University of Georgia in the past decade have been the physical improvements to the campus.

Since 1997, the University has built or renovated more than 5.3 million square feet of space on the Athens campus and an additional 300,000 square feet at locations beyond Athens.

The addition of East Campus Village increased the number of residence hall beds by 1,200 to 6,828, enabling the University in 2004 to require freshmen to live on campus.

The new residence halls in East Campus Village, extended hours at the new Student Learning Center and 24/7 dining service at Snelling Dining Hall—complemented by additional greenspace at Herty Field, D.W. Brooks Mall and the Lumpkin Woods Rain Gardens—have combined to make the Athens campus a community for living and learning.

The creation of the Real Estate Foundation in 2000 gave UGA freedom to use non-state funds for construction, with the ability to fast-track many projects, such as the Coverdell Center.

Currently, construction is underway on the new Lamar Dodd School of Art, and Tate Student Center addition and renovation. Soon UGA will break ground on a new College of Pharmacy, an addition to University Health Services and a student learning center in Griffin.
