With 124 degree programs at the baccalaureate, master’s and doctoral levels, Georgia Southern has been designated a Carnegie Doctoral-Research university and provides the classic residential campus experience and online learning options to nearly 20,500 students from 49 states and 86 nations. Georgia Southern’s nationally accredited academic programs prepare diverse scholars for leadership and service as world citizens. A unit of the University System of Georgia, the University boasts 200-plus student organizations, outstanding Division I athletics, and state-of-the art residence halls and campus facilities. Since 1906, the University’s hallmark has been a culture of engagement that bridges theory with practice, extends the learning environment beyond the classroom, and promotes student growth and life success. Central to the University’s mission is the faculty’s dedication to excellence in teaching and the development of a fertile learning environment exemplified by a free exchange of ideas, high academic expectations, and individual responsibility for academic achievement. Faculty, staff, and students embrace core values expressed through integrity, civility, kindness, collaboration, and a commitment to lifelong learning, wellness, and social responsibility.

Campus information

Main campus includes more than 100 buildings and 900 acres, including a Performing Arts Center, Planetarium, Museum, the Center for Wildlife Education and the Garden of the Coastal Plain.

Georgia Southern University is located in Statesboro, a safe and pleasant city of 30,000 on the coastal plain of southeast Georgia. Although proud of its small-town rural heritage, Statesboro is a rapidly growing economic, educational, and cultural center for southeast Georgia. Statesboro is home to a new regional medical center, a thriving technical college, a community arts theater, and a 160-acre public sports complex. In the rural countryside around Statesboro there are two state parks with opportunities for birding, camping, hiking, and fishing. Several undeveloped rivers offer excellent canoeing or kayaking.


University Housing provides on-campus housing for new freshmen, transfer students and graduate students in addition to students continuing after their first year on-campus.

All first year students and transfer students with less than 30 credit hours are required to live in on-campus housing.
