Health Sciences Campus
The University of Georgia's Health Sciences Campus, located on Prince Avenue in Athens, is a 56-acre campus that was the former site of the U.S. Navy Supply Corps School, which moved to Rhode Island in 2011 as part of the U.S. Department of Defense Base Realignment and Closure process. UGA's use of the property continues the 120-year history of education on the Navy School site. In 1891, the Georgia State Normal School was incorporated on the property, and in 1932, the school became the Coordinate College of the university for women. In 1953, the Navy acquired the site for use as the Supply Corps School. For a complete timeline or to schedule a tour, visit the Georgia Regents University website.
