Georgetown University’s main campus is located in Northwest D.C. at the intersection of 37th and O Streets. Residing in a city provides numerous transit options, and we strongly encourage visitors to take public transportation when making their way to the Hilltop. Please note that, due to high traffic and congestion in the Georgetown area, parking can be difficult. We recommend visitors to utilize parking garages in the Georgetown neighborhood, as the University itself has extremely limited parking. For this reason we encourage guests with mobility limitations to be dropped off at the Front Gates of the University at 37th and O Street, prior to parking.
