Perfect Housing for International Students at GSU


Congratulations on being an international student at Georgia State University! But let’s face a fact- the institution’s neighborhood (and Atlanta at large) is awash with student housing options that bring more stress than good.

Everything from location to amenities and rental fees is depressing.

Add the usual challenges that international students face – like language barriers and culture shock, and you may want to return home. A depressed mind cannot study well.

But The Mix is a game-changer. We understand that community, quality, and location matters most in every student’s life. Here’s why:

International Student & Scholar Services, an office in the Division of Student Engagement, provides comprehensive assistance and essential support services for the large community of international students, faculty and staff at Georgia State.

Located Close to Georgia State University International Student Office

As an international student, getting around a foreign culture can be stressful. Add on top the feeling of loneliness, language barrier, and home-sickness, and your success can plummet quickly.

The Mix Apartment values your academic success and life quality in general.

We’re located near Peachtree Centre, just 0.6 miles away from the GSU’s International Student Services office (ISSS). ISSS is crucial as it assists with all international student questions. Also, you get a golden opportunity to network with fellow international students who might be facing similar adjustments.

Are you stuck somewhere and facing challenges like graduation and on-campus engagement issues? You can quickly visit the ISSS office before the advising hours are over.

You don’t need to go far from your residential place to get the latest guidance and advice. The office has professional leaders and advisors in international education to serve you.

Proximity to ISSS allows you to seamlessly participate on campus and in the larger Atlanta community. That way, networking becomes a breeze, allowing you to develop leadership skills, boost your English, share cultures, and create long-lasting memories.

With so many student housing options, we know that location, quality, and community matter most. At The Mix, you can live the Georgia State University dream within a walking distance to campus. This is your place to study, play, and renew.

Simplify Your Living Expenses

International students are most likely to face financial issues due to various and complex challenges.

The high exchange rate between the US and your home currency can spark stress and anxiety when comparing marketing values. Plus, loans are hard to get by as you need a social security number and a US cosigner to apply for one.

The Mix understands these issues. That is why gas, water, electricity, heat, trash removal, sewer, cable, and air conditioning are included in your rent. We have a $10 cap per bedroom for water and a $35 cap per bedroom for electricity (residents are responsible for sub-metered usage of water and electricity beyond those caps). Here are some of the apartment amenities to expect:

  • Fully furnished rooms
  • Private bathrooms and bedrooms
  • Keyless entry
  • High-speed internet (wired and wireless)
  • Dryer and washer
  • Granite countertops
  • Stainless steel appliances
  • Stylish furniture
  • Fully equipped kitchens
  • Walk-in closets

The Mix also offers nine different floor plans based on your budget and needs. Plus, we have various types of apartments to choose from:

  1. 1-bedroom apartments, ranging from 595 to 799 sqft. These spaces are great if you’re flying solo.
  2. 2-bedroom apartments, ranging from 849 to 928 sqft. They’re perfect for roommates or couples looking to cost-share and enjoy a premium living experience.
  3. 3-bedroom apartments, at 1,257 sqft. If you and your friends are socially active, the ample space will save you from entertainment costs.
  4. 4-bedroom apartments, ranging from 1,570 to 1,639 sqft. They offer open-plan living for friends looking for furnished entertainment space, lounge area, and more.

And the outdoor area is also excellent. No need to spend money on the costly social amenities out there. The Mix offers 24/7 access to:

  • A fitness center
  • Resort-style pool
  • Outdoor lounge
  • Emergency maintenance and more

Our prime location offers a relaxing refuge, an easy commute to campus, and the conveniences of a vibrant local community.

Located Close to Study and Work

You don’t want to waste precious time commuting to and from work or classes. The Mix apartments are only 0.4 miles from Georgia State University’s main campus, an 8-minute walk.

The apartments are on a direct bus route to the main campus, so you can quickly get there by hopping onto a shuttle, riding a bike, driving yourself, or walking. There’ll be no need to worry about missing in action, whether you’re catching a game at Turner Field or making a dash to class.

Our amazing location offers you a launchpad to explore the vibrant local community as much as possible. Located in the heart of Atlanta’s downtown along Interstate 85, the center is ideal for adventurous tourists and renters who desire an urban lifestyle.

Our bustling neighborhood will surprise you with Atlanta’s most pristine dining scenes, including Sweet Georgia’s Juke Joint. And the iconic green Centennial Olympic Park will steal you away from the busy life’s hustles for a moment.

Other public amenities and attractions include the Georgia Aquarium, World of Coke, and Chick-fil-A College Football of Fame.

When applying for a room, you’ll fill in a roommate survey to help our team understand your habits and any person you wish to stay with.

Living With Roommates – Choose Your Friend

Unlike the traditional accommodations, the Mix apartments have a roommate matching system, helping you find a roommate that matches your wish.

When applying for a room, you’ll fill in a roommate survey to help our team understand your habits and any person you wish to stay with. We collect insights and preferences like TV programs, music genres, noise levels, typical study habits, and cleanliness. After submitting the data, you can rest assured you won’t end up with a roommate you can’t get along with.

Renting at the apartment complex also helps you be part of the entire community of college students. We understand what students are looking for (in terms of amenities, roommates, and proximity to schools) and strive to provide all that in one place. That’s why many students choose us, making our apartments a hub of scholars.

And did we tell you that you can bring your paw-friends with you? Oh yes. Your pet can keep you company as you wait for the next class.

Our student apartments in Atlanta provide the perfect setting for you to focus on your studies.
