WE'RE MOVING!
OFFICE OF INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION MOVING TO BANK OF AMERICA - end of February

You'd expect international educators to be a mobile lot, and this
semester, the Office of International Education is moving to the Bank
of America Building in downtown; the move is currently scheduled for
the week of February 26th.

New address:  110 E Clayton Street (corner of Clayton and Lumpkin)

Study Abroad and UGA Costa Rica will occupy the third floor, and
Immigration Services and the Office of the Associate Provost will
occupy the fourth floor.

The new telephone number for study abroad will be 706-425-3274 (note
that this number is not yet in service; please continue to use
706-542-7903, extension 1).
While there may be slight delays in getting back to student and
faculty during the week of transition (as well as the need to
transition to new phone numbers), we will continue to check e-mail as
regularly as possible during the week of the move.
