Along with its member institutions in the Atlanta University Center Consortium, Spelman shares cross-registration, the Woodruff Library, and a range of entertainment and engagement that complements anyone’s academic learning experience.

Atlanta has the largest concentration of colleges and universities in the Southern U.S., as a matter of fact, and students from Georgia Institute of Technology, Emory University, Agnes Scott College, Georgia State University, and Oglethorpe University are all encouraged to engage in a cultural and civic community. All these universities are located within 20 or 30 minutes by car, bus or train.
