South University's expansive campus in Savannah, GA, is located on the city's south side. The original College of Business building was constructed in 1979. Beginning in 2000, the campus began to experience tremendous expansion and alteration. The College of Business building was renovated and the Health Professions Building opened in 2000 to house classroom and lab facilities for the Physician Assistant, Physical Therapist Assistant and Medical Assisting programs in addition to the campus library, student lounge, and administrative offices. The 25,000-square foot structure, located adjacent to the College of Business building, was designed with expansion in mind with computer and medical labs to meet the changing needs of South University's student body.

In 2002, South University announced the establishment of the South University School of Pharmacy on the Savannah campus, offering the University's first doctoral degree and becoming the first university or college in Savannah to offer a health professions doctorate. The School of Pharmacy facility on the west lawn was completed in 2004.

That same year, South University's Savannah campus expanded its health professions programs by offering a master's degree in anesthesia sciences with a fully equipped operating room and anesthesia laboratory. Also in 2004, Savannah launched its online programs with bachelor's degrees in business and information technology. In 2005 online degree programs expanded with the addition of undergraduate programs and master's level programs in business, health care and criminal justice.

The Savannah campus library provides comfortable seating and study space for students, wireless capabilities for laptop network connectivity, and reference and interlibrary loan services. The open-stack book collection provides access to reference and circulating materials, program-specific resources to support class assignments, tutorial aides, and current events and recreational reading. The adjoining research center, furnished with computer work stations, offers students access to the Internet, on-line database services, an office suite, tutorials and class-support software. The library also houses a computer lab, academic support center, conference room, study rooms, and a distance learning classroom. The staff is prepared to assist students and faculty with their research needs. Students and faculty may request individual appointments with the librarians for research assistance and instruction or walk in for guidance on locating materials.
