Georgetown’s Move-In Weekend Begins Aug. 18

Georgetown University’s incoming first-year and new transfer students will move in on Thursday, Aug. 18, and Friday, Aug. 19. Rising sophomores, juniors and seniors will move in on Sunday, Aug. 21. The university has spread out the move-in over three days to mitigate any traffic disruptions in the neighborhood.

Classes begin Aug. 24 for Main Campus and Medical Center Undergraduate and On-Campus Graduate programs.

Founded by the Jesuits in 1789, Georgetown University is the oldest Catholic institution of higher education in the United States. However, most of its students are not Catholic. The school has roughly almost 20,000 students: 7,500 undergraduate; 11,500 graduate.

During move-in weekend, the university’s Office of Neighborhood Life (ONL) will operate SNAP teams with additional hours. SNAP is a service coordinated by ONL to enhance safety, assist and educate students as well as to respond to concerns from students and community members about the quality of life in the community. 

Call the University Helpline at 202-687-8413 — twenty-four hours a day for any noise, trash or other neighborhood concerns.

Georgetown University requires students, faculty, staff, and visitors to have received a primary series (e.g., two doses of an mRNA vaccine) and, when eligible, an additional dose (first booster) of a Covid-19 vaccine, or to have an approved medical or religious exemption.

All students will be required to test either 48 hours before or 24 hours after arriving on campus or in the neighborhood.
