Students, faculty and staff who use a vehicle on SCAD property must adhere to safe driving practices. For security reasons, do not leave items of value visible in parked cars.

Driving in Atlanta

Students, faculty and staff driving in Atlanta should plan ahead for rush hours and congested traffic in the mornings and evenings. Many local news stations and media outlets provide up-to-date traffic reports, such as ajc.com/traffic and wsbtv.com/traffic.

Driving in Hong Kong

All students, staff and faculty are strongly encouraged to use Hong Kong's public transit rather than driving personal vehicles. Parking is not available at SCAD Hong Kong.

In picturesque Lacoste, all facilities are within walking distance.

Driving in Savannah

All university buildings in Savannah are within driving distance. While traffic laws in Savannah are generally the same as all Georgia traffic laws, Savannah drivers should be aware of pedicabs, horse-drawn carriages, pedestrians and shuttles.
