In fall 2012, Point’s traditional students relocated to a new main campus in West Point, Ga. The West Point campus also offers the Access program for adult learners, while the historic East Point campus has been relocated to North Atlanta (Lindbergh) to continue serving our adult students. All six of Point University’s campuses serve our adult population through Access and the College of Graduate and Professional Studies (CGPS). High school students seeking college level courses also have an opportunity to enroll in our dual credit enrollment program (DCE) at our convenient downtown West Point location, online, or through their high school.
Founded in 1832, the idyllic town of West Point is home to 3,500 residents along a scenic stretch of the Chattahoochee River on the I-85 corridor, just an hour’s drive from the capital cities of Atlanta, Ga., and Montgomery, Ala., and four hours from the Gulf Coast beach and Georgia mountains. Part of the Greater Valley Area, West Point straddles Troup and Harris Counties in Georgia and sits just minutes from the Alabama cities of LaFayette, Lanett and Valley across the border.
About The West Point Campus
Formerly a commercial hub for textile production, today’s West Point has a thriving economy as home to Kia Motors’ first U.S. automotive plant, which opened in 2010 and is expected to bring upwards of 20,000 jobs to the region by this year. West Point has a walkable, historic downtown with an eclectic assortment of shops — from antiques and unique home furnishings to quaint apparel and accessories boutiques — and eateries including Asian, Southern and pub-style cuisine. The Point University Dining Hall provides breakfast, lunch and dinner throughout the week, brunch and dinner on the weekends, and is conveniently located downtown, just one block away from the Lanier Academic Center. Adjacent to the dining hall is the Point University Bookstore, a one stop shop for schools supplies, textbooks and McKinney’s Coffee Shop, now proudly serving Starbucks®.
Cultural opportunities in the area include a community theater, a 600-seat town auditorium and a local outdoor amphitheater. The town sits just downstream from the 26,000-acre West Point Lake offering 500 miles of shoreline for fishing, camping and water sports. The nearby Valley Community Center and Sportsplex offers tennis courts, baseball fields, soccer fields and a 64,000-square-foot aquatic Olympic center with a walking track, basketball, racquetball and football facilities.
Point University has campus housing available for students enrolled in the full-time traditional program. Located in the heart of downtown West Point, only blocks from the Lanier Academic Center, The Lofts Community is one of our newest additions to our campus housing options. This living area is specifically designated for freshman females. Each bedroom houses two students and features a private bathroom. Great for studying and hanging out, the two larger common rooms feature couches, tables and chairs, a flat-screen tv, and a kitchen area containing microwaves and a full-size refrigerator.
The Point Living Community at Abbey Glen, our largest housing facility, is the newest construction of Point’s residence halls. Students enjoy updated apartment style living, and are provided with a shuttle service to campus. Many amenities currently under construction include intramural fields, a clubhouse with workout space, laundry facilities and a community gathering area.

The Access program at Point University has had a tremendous impact on my life! Not only was I able to continue my education with my family and career in mind, I was able to gain a deeper love and understanding of Christ.
