Our Buildings and Facilities

The Georgia Tech campus is located in Midtown Atlanta, which is also the center of a prolific and creative arts scene. The music, movie, and technology industries are booming here -- something our students get to take great advantage of. The buildings that house the schools, research centers, and facilities of the College of Design stretch roughly a mile from Westside into the heart of Midtown, Atlanta.
