Atlanta hums with creative and entrepreneurial energy, and that's why SCAD students love this 21st-century city, where Fortune 500 companies, nonprofit organizations, design firms and fine art galleries await students at every turn. SCAD Atlanta stands in the heart of Midtown, close to everything: museums, parks, shopping, music and more.

SCAD Atlanta's main facility on Peachtree Street anchors this location as a true art and design center complete with classrooms, galleries, digital labs, library, dining hall and fitness center. Two residence halls, an acclaimed sculpture studio, a cultural arts and writing center, and an expansive digital media center offer broad avenues for student engagement. Intercollegiate athletics, special interest student associations and award-winning student media groups provide active outlets for students to learn, share and grow.

Special events connect students with Atlanta's and the world's professional communities. SCAD Seen is a premier fundraising event that showcases the brilliant work of student designers, as does Out to Launch, SCAD's reverse career fair. Many students choose to study at SCAD Atlanta for the entirety of their degree programs, while others may spend a quarter, a year, or more in this enterprising American metropolis.
