About Columbus State University
Campus & Facilities

Set on 132 rolling acres, the Columbus State University has grown from its five original buildings to become a thriving campus where classes are held late into the evening in buildings often named for individuals who have helped the college grow.

One of the campus' newest jewels is the 96,000-square-foot Technology and Commerce Center, which opens this year at the front of campus as the new building for the Abbott Turner College of Business, Computer Science Department and Computer Information Networking Services.

The building features a 24-hour computer lab with secure monitored access; lounge areas on all floors for students to socialize; four theatre-style classrooms (each seating 75 people) outfitted with the latest technology including-rear-screen projectors; audio-visual control panels for professors and power, voice, and data ports at each seat for students; a 106-seat auditorium; wiring for 1,500 computers; and 12 40-seat classrooms on the third and fourth floors.

The Lumpkin Center is also a recent impressive addition to campus. Home to CSU's men's and women's basketball teams, the Department of Physical Education and Leisure Management, CSU's commencements and various classes. The 5,000-seat arena inside also allows the university to host a wide variety of regional and local events.

With these new buildings, a newly renovated student center, classrooms, laboratories, offices, auditoriums, a gymnasium, cafeterias and other gathering spots, students have a wide variety of choices for study and comfort.

Students also make use of the leisure activities afforded by a fitness trail, student life pavilion, athletic and intramural fields, a swimming pool and tennis courts.

Student housing is provided by new apartment-style housing adjacent to campus, as well as sophisticated loft apartments in Uptown Columbus, next door to the RiverCenter for the Performing Arts, which houses CSU's Schwob School of Music.

CSU is about 100 miles southwest of Atlanta, just off I-185. The campus is minutes away from a commuter airport and the mall, and 15 minutes from historic Uptown Columbus. The city offers museums; an outstanding symphony; ice hockey; professional basketball (NBDL); concerts and other special events in the Columbus Civic Center; and hiking and biking along the Chattahoochee River and in 48 city parks. Historic attractions, Georgia's largest state park, mountains, the Gulf and Atlantic seacoasts are all within convenient travel time from Columbus.

Computer labs across campus provide student access to e-mail, word processing and on-line research, as well as instructional technology throughout the curriculum. Student housing also supports e-mail and Internet access. The Simon Schwob Memorial Library, open more than 90 hours a week, provides online access to more than 100 databases and electronic full-text of more than 500 journals. Students also have access to the Internet and CD-ROM informational products in both Apple and PC platforms.
