Students and faculty during Open House

Get a Closer Look

Get a Closer Look

It's especially helpful for prospective students and applicants to visit the Georgia Tech campus. During Covid-19, our office is not open to visitors. Visits have been replaced with virtual information sessions.

How to Learn More

Every application cycle we host information sessions for prospective master and doctoral students. Our annual Open House takes place every Spring, and we encourage accepted students to join us for the day.

The School of City & Regional Planning Offices are operating virtually during the Covid-19 pandemic. They are regularly located in the East Architecture Building, Suite 204. The main Architecture buildings are located in the heart of the Georgia Tech campus. The two-story brick East Architecture Building is the first academic building west of the fraternities on the north side of Fourth Street.

Students engage in discussion.

Information Sessions

We hold four information sessions during each academic year: two in the fall and two in the spring. Prospective students get the opportunity to learn about city planning at Georgia Tech, our MCRP and MS-GIST degree programs, the application process, and funding your education. Students will hear from the School chair, program directors, and current students.

There are no more remaining Virtual Information Sessions for the 2020-2021 academic year.

Missed the chance for a live information session?

Join MCRP Program Director Michael Elliott as he walks you through his virtual session about why you should study planning here at Georgia Tech. Michael Elliott describes several Georgia Tech alumni and how their planning work impacts Atlanta to this day.

Open House

Open House gives the most in-depth look at life in the School of City and Regional Planning. Every Spring the free, day-long event includes panel sessions with students and faculty from each of our degree programs, a planning bus tour of Atlanta, a presentation by the Student Planning Association, time to interact with the faculty, and a specializations fair.

Details on the 2022 Open House will be posted in early 2022.
