Preparing for Arrival

Arrival Dates for Spring 2019

Please plan to arrive in the Statesboro on the following dates.
Undergraduate Students: January 7-10, 2019 (early move-in to university housing is allowed)
Graduate Students: January 7-10, 2019

These dates will allow you time to settle in prior to beginning orientation.

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 for transportation from the airport information.
