General Information

Jacksonville State University (JSU) is located between two large cities in the Southeast: Atlanta, Georgia and Birmingham, Alabama.

People traveling to JSU by plane use the airports in Atlanta or Birmingham. There is no regular airline service between these airports and Jacksonville. After arriving in these airports you must first travel by bus or "limousine" to a location close to the University. Most people traveling alone prefer to fly to Atlanta and travel by bus to the University because the transportation service is generally better from Atlanta than from Birmingham. However, directions are provided from both airports.
