The Coastal Georgia Center, an academic and conference facility located in Savannah’s historic district  at 305 Fahm St., recently announced the addition of wireless Internet access.

“One of the top questions I receive from folks who inquire about using our facility is ‘Do you have wireless access?’” said Henry Whitfield, director of the center. “I am pleased to say that as of July 1, we do. We’re ready for the new school year, and we invite anyone who’s interested to visit and try our new service.”

The 50,000-square-foot Coastal Georgia Center is operated by Georgia Southern University in partnership with Armstrong Atlantic State University and Savannah State University. It offers state-of-the-art meeting space for groups of almost any size, and it offers a professional staff that provides services ranging from technical support to catering and concierge services.

“For the first time ever, the Coastal Georgia Center offered more than 100 graduate-level courses in education, business, accounting, social work, public administration and urban studies in the past academic year,” explained Whitfield, “so the need for wireless access was certainly apparent.”

The Coastal Georgia Center completed a variety of building upgrades in recent months, including a new front desk area, several room renovations, individual volume controls and improved air flow controls for multi-purpose rooms, enhanced audio-visual features for auditorium overflow and repaving of the upper level parking area. Anyone interested in learning more about the space available or reserving space at the center can visit the Web at or call the center at (912) 651-2005.
