The University of West Georgia's campus is a unique blend of old and new. Boasting abundant trees, shrubs and flowers, the campus is dotted with structures of the early 1900's as well as buildings exemplifying the most contemporary modes of architecture.
Front Campus Drive, a three-block-long expanse of rolling hills shaded by scores of towering oak, elm and maple trees, features historic structures such as Kennedy Interfaith Chapel and Bonner House, two of the oldest buildings on campus. In 1964, after the Chapel was moved to the campus, the late Robert F. Kennedy dedicated it to the memory of his brother, the late President John F. Kennedy. The Bonner House, constructed in 1843 as a plantation home, is the oldest building on campus. The frame colonial structure has served various purposes through the years.
A modern academic complex composed of a newly renovated library, the Technology-enhanced Learning Center, as well as social science, humanities and math-physics buildings lies beyond Front Campus Drive. Other buildings in the area include the Richards College of Business; the three-story University Community Center; the Campus Center, which boasts a full gym, indoor track and rock-climbing wall; the Townsend Center for Performing Arts; and the newly-constructed Visual Arts Building.
UWG also features some of the region's most impressive athletic facilities. The Coliseum, with a capacity of 6,500 for athletic events, has hosted concerts, graduations and community events.
University Stadium, the new 9,500-seat home to UWG football, anchors the university's athletic complex. There are also football and soccer practice fields, as well as the Women's Complex, which features competition soccer and softball fields.
The Greek Village and suite- and apartment- style residence halls offer comfortable and convenient living options for students on campus. The most recent additions include Center Pointe Suites and the East Village.
The on-campus bookstore, conveniently located across the street from both the TLC and the Greek Village, offers textbooks, spirit wear snacks and more
The university's newest facility is the School of Nursing Building. With 64,000 square feet of technology-equipped space, the new building provides nursing students with unprecedented access to state of the art equipment.
A commitment to campus growth and expansion will continue to be a priority for our institution, with several construction projects on the horizon.
