Georgetown University is an exceptional private university established in 1789 and is ranked in the top tier of all American Universities. Although it is located in NW Washington D.C., it has a charming, small, historic campus feel with views of the Potomac River all within short distance of the downtown center of our Nation’s capital. Georgetown University is known for its excellence in undergraduate and graduate academics, international business, medicine, law, public policy, NCAA Division I athletics, and more.
The campus offers 24/7 safety and security services and many other features such as key card access to all buildings and dormitories (outside doors, elevators, and room access). Keys are programmed by GU specific to the nature of what the student or faculty/staff member needs to access and only what they need to access. This is another layer of security that GU offers to create an environment conducive to concentrating on studies, participating in campus activities, and moving around campus with ease.
