Graduate Athens is serendipitously located near the heart of downtown Athens and the historic UGA campus. They've made their home in the Foundry, where blacksmiths crafted famed works like the UGA Arch and the Double-Barreled Cannon. This reimagined space honors the site's roots and preserves a piece of Athens' historic past.

Their carefully curated rooms not only offer a comfy place to lay your head, but they offer little moments of surprise and discovery around every corner. Think of it as a place where your intellectual curiosity meets your favorite place to stay.

Whether you're in town for a show or visiting for business, you will feel like a local – even if it's your first time in town. This is Graduate – get ready to be inspired.
