Emory is located in Atlanta's historic, scenic Druid Hills neighborhood, offering a small-town feel with large-city amenities. Atlanta's top cultural, entertainment, and recreational venues are just minutes away. The Emory University Conference Center allows for events of many types and with the university’s commitment to sustainable building and green space, there is nearly 2 million square feet of LEED-certified space. This includes four residence halls and a “no net loss of forest canopy” policy that ensures any trees removed for construction are replaced elsewhere on campus.  View the video below to get a better sense of the space offered by the University’s conference centers and banquet halls.
