Alcohol use is common on college campuses, however, not everyone drinks. Some students prefer to live in a sober community, free from substance use and abuse.



It is common for colleges and universities to have high rates of drug use and abuse in student housing. However, many students do not use drugs and want the option of living in substance-free dorms.



There is a Georgia State University (GSU) campus in downtown Atlanta, Georgia.

Georgia State University has on campus housing in The Lofts, Piedmont North, University Commons, Patton Hall and Greek Housing Townhomes (Fraternities and Sororities complex). They don't specifically mention any sober or substance-free living arrangements.

For those choosing not to live on campus, this downtown Atlanta school is quite close to several MARTA (Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority) stations.


No, I don't think so. All of my research has confirmed that Georgia State University (GSU) does not offer substance-free housing, where students agree to live free from alcohol and/or drug use. Many schools, colleges, and universities have such dormitories (dorms), and the students are usually held under a contract. GSU, however, does not have these dorms.
