Where is SPSU?


Located in the heart of Marietta, Georgia, SPSU is not only a great place to live and work, but a great place to play! We are easily within a 15 minute drive to Atlanta. But if you want more, or just to get away for the weekend we are less than 25 minutes from the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, which is the nation's busiest airport! 

We are minutes from the historic Marietta Square
and every Thursday, we have a trolley that runs on a loop from campus to the square for faculty, staff, and students!
