About our App

Augmented UGA is an AR-based app that was created to serve and enhance potential and current students, faculty, and alumni’s experiences while on campus. Our immersive and user-friendly interface provides information about UGA’s most renowned landmarks and buildings. Augmented UGA allows visitors to tailor their experience of the campus to their individual interests, and provides them additional information they have about UGA’s campus and all it has to offer.

    Augmented reality and location services are seamlessly blended to direct you to each location, or simply use apple maps, integrated within the app

  • 3

The Chapel

The Chapel was one of the first Greek structures in Athens.

The Chapel is a former church that now hosts lectures, events, even weddings and is home to the Chapel Bell, a university landmark. The Bell is located right on property behind the Chapel.

The Arch

Representing three values of UGA: Wisdom, Justice, and Moderation

At nearly 160 years old, the cast iron Arch bordering downtown Athens marks the entrance to campus and is the most iconic symbol of the university. It has also become tradition for students to refrain from walking underneath the arch until graduation.
