Welcome to Greece

The School’s main campus can be found at the base of the southern slope of Mount Lykavitos in the Kolonaki district, one of the most fashionable areas in the center of Athens. The Evangelismos Metro Station is located approximately five minutes’ walking distance from the School. 

Living in Greece

About 350 students and scholars from North America, as well as numerous scholars from Greece and Europe, use the School’s facilities each year. The Main Building on campus houses the Blegen Library, the Wiener Archaeological Laboratory, computer lab, offices, workrooms, and the Director’s Residence. Across the street, also on School grounds, stands the Gennadius Library. Two staff houses are attached to the Gennadius, while next door is Loring Hall which provides living quarters for students and scholars as well as a dining hall open to all School members, resident and nonresident. The Agora excavation site and the Stoa of Attalos Museum and offices are located at the base of the Acropolis in the heart of Athens. The Corinth Excavations are about an hour’s drive away from the city and can also be reached by train.
