The University of Georgia’s main campus spans 762 acres and features 465 buildings. To its north, the university borders historic downtown Athens, which boasts eclectic boutiques, nationally acclaimed restaurants, entertainment venues and more. In addition to its Athens campus, UGA owns almost 40,000 acres in 31 Georgia counties.
The university’s historic North Campus is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places and features some of the oldest buildings on campus and in the city of Athens. Today, centuries-old buildings like the Chapel, Old College and the Main Library are used for classrooms, offices, event spaces and more, all nestled among the imposing oaks of the original campus quadrangle.
Stretching more than a mile from north to south, South Campus houses a variety of departments, including the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, the College of Education and the School of Social Work. Many science and math departments also call South Campus home, along with three of UGA’s professional schools, the College of Pharmacy, the College of Veterinary Medicine and the College of Engineering. Several athletic facilities, like Stegman Coliseum and Butts-Mehre Heritage Hall, home of the Athletic Association and a sports museum, are also located on South Campus.
Central Campus is the heart of student activity at UGA. With the Tate Student Center, University Bookstore, Miller Learning Center and more, this part of campus has some of the most widely used buildings at UGA and bustles with activity year-round.
Developed in the 1990s to house the student recreation center, health center and new buildings for the performing and visual arts, East Campus is a hub of activity and right up the road from the intramural fields, UGA golf course and the State Botanical Garden of Georgia. This area of campus also features apartment-style residence halls, the Georgia Museum of Art and a dining facility.

Today, the campus is home to the university’s College of Public Health, the AU/UGA Medical Partnership and other health-related programs.
