Abstract:The campus of Georgia Tech served as the Olympic Village for the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games in Atlanta. For Tech, the Olympic Village represented the single biggest construction project in the school's history. In addition to the construction of seven new dormitories, such as Sixth Street Apartments and Hemphill Avenue Apartments, Tech also acquired an aquatic center. Although the majority of the photographs are not dated, they all originated around the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games.

Biographical/Historical Note

The campus of Georgia Tech served as the Olympic Village for the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games in Atlanta. For Tech, the Olympic Village represented the single biggest construction project in the school's history. To accommodate and make final preparations for the Olympic competitors, the campus closed on July 1, 1996. During the Games, the Tech campus served as the home of the Olympians and it was the site of the swimming and boxing venues. Immediately following the Olympics themselves, the Paralympic Games began, utilizing many of the same campus facilities.
