There are many different ways to get to the Georgia State University campus. It is important to plan ahead whether you will drive or take public transportation. The Georgia State University website provides important information about campus shuttles, student discounts for MARTA, and parking on the Transit page.

In addition, if you need information on how to get a driver’s license, please refer to the IEP Student Handbook for more information.


Please see the Ground Transportation Overview for information on getting to and from the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

It is strongly recommended that you arrange transportation from the Atlanta airport to your place of lodging prior to your arrival. For those of you who will be arriving in Atlanta from overseas or another part of the US without someone to pick you up at the airport, below are two possible options:

  • Contact one of the international student groups that are a part of ISAC (International Student Associations Council). These groups exist to promote the culture and serve the needs of the many international students on campus. Several of them provide airport pickup as well as housing assistance for new students from their part of the world. The list of groups can be found here.
  • A group called Culture Connection can provide an airport pick-up service.  You can fill out this form or contact Elaine Brown at [email protected].
  • Take a taxi or shuttle directly to your accommodations.

Driving and public transportation (MARTA) directions can be found here.
