The University of Georgia was founded in 1785 and Athens became a town in 1806; as such there is plenty of history to enjoy in the area and on campus. Here's how to get there.
The University of Georgia is served by several bus routes which are both an economical and environmentally-friendly way to access the campus. The buses run between 7:00am and 7:00pm. The university's website provides an interactive map detailing the bus routes serving different areas of the campus. If you're traveling as a group, the university also has a transit charter service which is available for hire.
If you're traveling to the campus by car then you need to ensure that you arrange a permit or park in one of the pay and display lots. Not all parking lots operate as pay on arrival so it's always best to check before you park. Some of the visitor lots include, but are not limited to, South Campus Parking Deck, North Campus Parking Deck, Performing Arts Center Parking Deck, and the Tate Centre Parking Deck.
Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport, one of the largest and busiest in the country, is 80 miles southwest of the university. Depending on the traffic, driving to campus from the airport takes around an hour and a half. There are also public transit options which connect the airport to the university, though these take longer.
