by Katie Sloan

Atlanta — Amazon has signed an agreement with Georgia Tech to open a staffed pickup location on the school’s campus at 86 Fifth St. N.W. in Midtown Atlanta.

Known as Amazon@GeorgiaTech, the 2,500-square-foot space in the school’s Technology Square area will be used by patrons to pick up and return Amazon orders. Amazon Student and Prime members will be able to receive free same-day pickup for Amazon orders placed by noon and free one-day pickup for orders placed by 10 p.m. This is Amazon’s first staffed pickup location in the state of Georgia.

Since 2015, Amazon has opened staffed pickup locations at the following universities: Purdue University, University of Massachusetts Amherst and University of California, Berkeley, as well as in the college communities of University of California, Santa Barbara, and University of Cincinnati. Amazon will open four more locations in 2016 at the University of Pennsylvania, University of California, Davis, and The University of Texas at Austin, as well as in the college community of University of Akron.
