Relocation

Savannah is a beautiful city filled with history, art, and culture.  Its incredible urban renewal is quickly making it one of the most desirable places to live in the United States.  Savannah is a city of personal discovery and its endearing quirks and idiosyncrasies will broaden your mind and challenge your expectations, making possibilities not only endless, but attainable.

This short relocation guide is designed as a starting point to help you relocate to our community and join the Savannah Law School family. We look forward to you joining us in August!

Relocation Tuition Credit:

The relocation tuition credit is designed to assist students with the costs associated with moving to Savannah. To be eligible, an entering student must be relocating to Savannah from a distance of more than 100 miles away. Distance is determined by your residency at the time of acceptance. Once verified, students will receive a one-time credit in the amount of $1,000 applied towards the fall term tuition in which they begin study. To apply, please download the application on our Scholarships and Benefits page.

Roommate Matching Pool:

If you are looking for a roommate when you arrive in Savannah and would like to be included in the roommate pool, please fill out the Roommate Questionnaire and email it to admissions@savannahlawschool.org.  The information you provide in the form will be entered into an Excel spreadsheet and distributed to only those individuals who opted to participate in the roommate selection pool.  You will then have the opportunity to review the information and contact the individual(s) that you feel will be the best match for you.

Neighborhoods where students commonly live:

Historic District* (where SLS is located and within walking distance to the school)
Victorian District/SOFO/Starland* (within walking and biking distance to the school)
Ardsley Park* (within biking distance to the school)
Wilmington/Tybee Islands**
Pooler**
Richmond Hill**

More detailed information and maps about Savannah neighborhoods can be found here.

*many of the apartments in these areas are old mansions converted into apartments and are privately owned. This can make it difficult to find a complete listing of availability but they are well worth the effort if you would like to live in a historic building close to school.

**much of the availability in these areas are full homes or larger apartment complexes. Great for families but you will have about a 15 – 35 minute commute to school depending on where you live in the community.
