Armstrong Atlantic State University, also referred to as Armstrong Atlantic, Armstrong, and formerly AASU, is a four-year public university, part of the University System of Georgia. It is located on a 268-acre (1.08 km2) campus in suburban Savannah, Georgia, United States. The campus is approximately fifteen minutes from downtown Savannah and 25 miles (40 km) from Tybee Island beaches. The name AASU is no longer encouraged due to the university's drive to distinguish itself using the unique Armstrong name.

Armstrong Atlantic was founded in 1935 by Thomas Gamble, mayor of Savannah, as Armstrong Junior College. The institution grew into a four-year university in the 1960s. Armstrong currently offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in more than 100 academic programs through four colleges. Armstrong has a student enrollment of approximately 7,600 students, including close to 1,000 graduate students. Fielding athletic teams known as Armstrong Atlantic Pirates, the university competes at the NCAA Division II level as a member of the Peach Belt Conference. Armstrong's official colors are maroon and gold.
