G.U. to Be ‘Vaccinated Campus,’ Move-In Later this Week 

Later this week, expect to see more university students roaming around and exploring the neighborhood, discovering the charm and beauty of Georgetown or visiting old haunts.

In a “Special Edition” Neighborhood Newsletter sent campus-wide, Georgetown University proclaimed, “At long last, we are excited to welcome students back to campus starting this week.”

The university will be welcoming first-year and new transfer students to campus this Thursday and Friday, Aug. 19-20. Rising sophomores through seniors can move in Sunday, Aug. 22, and Monday, Aug. 23. The university is hoping that spreading out the move-in process will avoid traffic issues.

Of course, students are not allowed on campus unless they’re fully vaccinated. University President John DeGioia shared in messages this past spring that all students, faculty and staff who will be on one of Georgetown’s campuses or in a university owned/operated building in D.C. this fall must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Medical and religious exemptions will be granted in accordance with the law.

The Office of Neighborhood Life will operate Student Neighborhood Assistance Program (SNAP) teams with additional hours during move-in. SNAP is a service designed to “enhance safety, assist and educate students, and respond to concerns from student and non-student community members about the quality of life in the community.”

The SNAP schedule for opening move-in weekend will be: Thursday from 10 p.m.to 3 a.m., Friday to Saturday from 5 p.m. to 3 a.m., and Sunday to Tuesday from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. The university will also be collecting bulk trash from students moving into off-campus houses.

Students are advised to call the University Helpline at 202-687-8413 for any noise, trash or neighborhood concerns.

The Georgetowner is wishing G.U. students the best of luck this year!
