The University of Georgia (UGA) is located in Athens, Georgia with basically the whole city within commuting distance. Apartments around the UGA campus are located in a few key areas:
North Campus - right by Downtown Athens. Here you can find apartment buildings right in Downtown, directly North of campus. Or, you can find a few student communities still within walking distance to the East and West of North Campus.
Central Campus - to the West you can find a fairly densely populated are with homes and a few older apartment communities, all within walking distance.
South Campus - you can find a few student apartment communities situated right by campus, and a few more further South by the UGA golf course.
Aside from the apartments within walking distance there is a high concentration of student focused apartments off Barnett Shoals Rd. to the East of UGA campus.
There is a UGA bus system (http://www.transit.uga.edu/routes) as well as the Athens bus system to help those not within walking distance to campus.
