Study across two campuses—and around the world

You’ll follow your first two years on the Hilltop, where Georgetown’s story began, with two years in Georgetown’s downtown Washington, DC location, where national and international environmental change is made. You’re encouraged to broaden your perspective with at least one immersion experience away from DC or in an international location.

Hilltop Campus: Be part of the rich history of the country’s oldest Catholic and Jesuit institution of higher learning. It all started in 1789 when John Carroll, Georgetown University’s founder, bought the first acre of land. Since then, generations of students have called the Hilltop home. You’ll live in one of five residential communities and enjoy the vibrant campus life with more than 250 clubs and organizations. Plus, you’ll be just steps away from the exciting M Street shopping area while still having the charm of a historic neighborhood.

Capitol Campus: In your junior and senior years, you’ll move to Georgetown’s Capitol Campus, housed in the state-of-the-art 111 Mass Ave building. The Capitol Campus gives you front row access to Washington DC, where decisions about the environment can shape the future. The Capitol Campus is a hub of activity, with undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, staff, and cool events happening all the time. You can choose to live in a modern apartment-style community at 55 H Street NW or live off-campus for more independence.

A new residential community

55 H Street NW is Georgetown’s newest residential facility. Live, study, work and explore at the heart of the nation’s capital when you take advantage of Georgetown University’s Capitol Campus residence at 55 H Street, NW. Located a few blocks from the Capitol Building, Capital One Arena and numerous transportation options, 55 H St. NW is a launching pad to match your educational, community and housing needs.
