A Legacy of Excellence in DC

For more than 235 years, Georgetown University has called Washington, DC, home: beginning with “The Hilltop,” founded in 1789, and continuing with the establishment of Georgetown Law in downtown DC in 1870. Now, in our third century, we are growing our impact with a new campus just blocks from the U.S. Capitol. A home for discovery, interdisciplinary and civic engagement, the Capitol Campus builds on Georgetown’s historic strengths and brings together new opportunities for collaboration in a vibrant new living and learning community in the heart of DC.

Live in the Heart of the Capital

Students on the Capitol Campus can live in Georgetown’s eco-friendly apartment-style residence building. The building features a fitness center, a contemplation space, modern living spaces and common areas to study and relax. 55H is just a few blocks from Union Station and jobs and internships downtown, and within walking distance to grocery stores, Chinatown, the National Portrait Gallery and more.

Access all of DC & the Hilltop

Georgetown community members have easy access between the Hilltop and the Capitol Campus on the GUTS bus, a free shuttle for faculty, staff and students. The Capitol Campus is easily accessible by Metro, the subway system of the Washington, DC, region. We are a short walk from both the Union Station and Judiciary Square stops on the Red Line and from major bus lines, including the DC Circulator Bus, which has stops on the Capitol Campus on Massachusetts Avenue.

Spend a Semester Downtown

Georgetown’s Capitol Applied Learning Labs (The CALL) program enables students to explore Washington, DC, and expand their professional experience by living and learning on the Capitol Campus for one semester during their undergraduate years.

During the week, students gain valuable internship, mentoring and networking experience while pursuing courses designed to engage DC. And on the weekends, they explore the neighborhoods of DC — eateries, shops and culture — and the national monuments and museums that make living in Washington, DC, unique.

Hoyas in the Capitol Campus

“Being off [the Hilltop] and being a part of this city — having to walk to work, for example — I think adds to the richness of the experience.

“I came to law school interested in criminal defense work, but now I see there are a multitude of fascinating areas of law, whether it’s copyright or arbitration or even technical federal civil procedure issues. Throughout my career, I want to have lots of touchpoints in different areas.”

“Being a McCourt student to me is being someone who, while balancing the academic commitments that come with being a student, is able to put time aside to focus on the community and pursue their passions to make the lives of those around them better.”
