The Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport is the closest airport to Georgia Southern University. This airport is about 45 minutes from the campus. The Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport should be your final flight destination, since transportation from the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is costly and limited.
Arriving to Campus
Students arriving on their own are encouraged to arrive on campus during business hours (8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday – Friday). Depending on when your flight arrives, you may need to spend the night at an airport hotel. A list of Savannah/Hilton Head Airport hotels can be found here.
Contact the OIPS at email@example.com for transportation from the airport information.
