Live in one of the most affordable major metropolitan areas in the country. Blending urban and green space, Atlanta is a hub for businesses and change makers in the South.

Why Atlanta

Immerse Yourself in Culture and Connections

Make yourself at home in a city where your neighbors include Fortune 500 companies, regional offices for many federal organizations, ambitious startups, acclaimed chefs, cultural museums, and some of the most impactful political figures in history, such as Congressman John Lewis--an honorary Emory Law degree holder. Tucked away amidst the bustle and energy of the city are quiet neighborhoods, sidewalks, and corner markets, and beautiful parks with glimmering skyline views. Truly a gateway to anywhere, Atlanta is also home to the world's busiest airport, with service to destinations all over the globe.

Discover Atlanta

Low Cost, High Potential

Compared to other major metropolitan areas, Atlanta's cost of living is much lower. Emory is located in a tree-lined pedestrian neighborhood with numerous house and apartment rentals within walking distance, along Emory's extensive free shuttle routes, or an easy bike ride away. Share an apartment in a community with amenities, rent a studio or a carriage house, lease an urban loft, or split a rental house with others.

Low Cost, High Potential

Never Say, "I'm Bored"

Cheer on one of Atlanta's four professional sports teams. The Falcons, Hawks, and Atlanta United play at the brand new Mercedes Benz stadium, while the Atlanta Braves play at the newly built SunTrust Park. Grab a beer at SweetWater Brewery or check out one of Atlanta's many festivals, such as the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival, Atlanta Arts Festival, and Music Midtown.
