Which Student Apartments are Closest to Georgia Tech’s Campus? 

By Chester

When making the decision of where to live during your time at Georgia Tech, location is one of the biggest factors to consider. You may ask yourself, should I stay on-campus or live off-campus? If I live off-campus, will I be disconnected from student life?

Midtown is home to several student apartment options. Many of these are so close to campus, you’ll feel like you never left.

At Whistler, we’re confident that our full suite of amenities, variety of floor plans, and prime location can suit the needs of any Georgia Tech student. However, we understand the importance of making an informed decision. To help you better compare your options, we have compiled a list of purpose-built student apartments that are closest to Georgia Tech’s campus.
