The Georgia Regents University/University of Georgia Medical Partnership is located on the UGA Health Sciences Campus in Athens. The majority of classes are held in Russell Hall, which was built in 1974. The nearly 63,000 square-foot building includes classrooms, rooms for small group and clinical skills teaching, a lab for gross anatomy, pathology and histology, a medical library, and faculty offices. The Medical Partnership Administration is housed in Winnie Davis Hall, which was built in 1902.
In 2011, the University of Georgia acquired the former U.S. Navy Supply Corps School on the medical corridor of Prince Avenue near downtown Athens. The 56-acre Health Sciences Campus has an extensive landscaped green space, more than 400 trees and several historic buildings.
In addition to Russell Hall and Winnie Davis Hall, many Medical Partnership students enjoy utilizing Pound Hall, a satellite location of the Ramsey Center. Open for Medical Partnership student, faculty and staff use, Pound Hall has treadmills, stationary bikes, and weight lifting equipment. Adjacent to Pound Hall, students can play basketball in Wheeler Hall, play tennis on one of the tennis courts, and participate in a pick-up game of softball on the ball field.
Medical Partnership students have the opportunity to live on the UGA Health Sciences Campus. Residential facilities are designed to provide convenient and comfortable living accomodations at an affordable cost. Options include two- and three-bedroom townhouses, as well as two- and three-bedroom homes. For further information, please contact the UGA Office of University Housing.
Opening in 2013, Scott Hall will serve as the UGA Health Sciences Campus student center and house a student dining hall and student meeting rooms.

Athens is one of the nation’s quintessential college towns, with a lively restored Victorian-era downtown bustling with shops, dining and nightlife. The city’s population of 102,000 swells on Saturdays during the fall, as nearly 93,000 people pack into Sanford Stadium on the University of Georgia campus to cheer on the Georgia Bulldogs. Atlanta is just 70 miles away, and the scenic north Georgia mountains are just a short drive up Highway 441. To learn more about Athens, see www.visitathensga.com
