Travel Information

Georgetown’s main gate is located at 3700 O Street, Washington, DC 20057.

By car

General driving directions to campus can be found here.

Parking on the streets around campus is sparse, and is mostly limited to 2-hour (strictly enforced) periods. Meanwhile, on-campus visitor parking is expensive ($22.00 per day — more information here). Hence, if you are driving to DC from out of town, you may wish to leave your car at your hotel or wherever you are staying and travel to campus from there by alternative means.

By MetroRail and/or MetroBus

While no MetroRail lines stop at Georgetown directly, several buses stop at or near Georgetown, and connect to and from various MetroRail lines as well as other points throughout the city.

The G2 bus stops at the main gate of the university (3700 O Street), and connects to the Dupont Circle MetroRail station and the Logan Circle area via P Street.  G2 Map and Timetable
