Plan for Your Move

Living in Atlanta

Attending Candler gives you the opportunity to enjoy life in Atlanta, one of the most beautiful and vibrant cities in the world. Emory's campus is located in the historic intown neighborhood of Druid Hills, which provides ample green space for you to enjoy but is also quite close to the heart of a major urban center.

Atlanta is home to many historic sites like the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change, as well as a thriving culinary scene, an impressive center for the arts, the world's largest aquarium, and multiple professional sports teams. But some of the best attractions are the city's small neighborhoods—closely knit communities with their own unique history and character. Many are walkable and filled with local restaurants and coffee shops, providing a sense of home in the midst of a bustiing city landscape. 

Housing and Transportation

While Emory does not offer on-campus housing for any graduate or professional students, there are a number of resources available to help you find a safe and affordable place to live. The University also encourages the use of alternative transportation and helps provide several options for you to reach campus without the use of a car. Please visit Candler's Housing and Transportation webpage for additional details.

Schools and Childcare

If you are moving to Atlanta with your family, you may want to learn more about the schools and childcare facilities located nearby. Emory University is committed to connecting parents with the resources they need. For information about local schools, childcare, and other services available for graduate students, please visit the Emory Worklife Resource website.
