Tate Student Center
- Tate Student Center, 45 Baxter St. Extension, UGA Campus, Athens, GA 30602
A 2009 expansion added 100,000 square feet and doubled the size of the Tate Student Center, which first opened in 1983. The $58 million project drastically increases space for student programs and activities in the heart of UGA campus.
The Tate expansion includes a 12,000 square-foot ballroom that can be subdivided into seven smaller rooms. With a capacity of more than 1,600 people, this state-of-the-art room is a suitable venue for large-scale student activities including concerts, lectures, meetings, and much more.
The fourth level features six well-appointed conference and meeting rooms, comfortable, intimate lounge seating areas, and the Student Veterans Resource Center. This mezzanine-level looks over the third-floor below.
Other features include a small amphitheater with a projection system and 18-foot screen; Print & Copy Services; the UGACard Office; a Gameroom; and the Intersection, a meeting facility dedicated to celebrating culture and identity.
Restaurant offerings include Barberitos Southwestern Cafe; Chick-fil-A; Panda Express; The Niche Pizzeria, and Athena Mediterranean Kitchen.
The Tate Student Center's unique two-story Atrium features dramatic lighting and floor-to-ceiling windows allowing natural light to flood the building.
