A surprise welcome for an urban campus with so many of its buildings on the street, nice to see a campus center with welcoming gates. Rather lovely, especially given its locale.

Run by the Jesuits, this is the most famous university in Washington and probably the oldest. It hugs the Georgetown district which also is interesting in its own right. The campus is a mixture of old and new and is filled with students twelve months of the year

This is probably one of the most beautiful university campuses that I have seen in the US. I was lucky to be there at the time magnolias were blooming in mid-Spring and the weather was beautiful. It covers quite a bit of territory, so it's easy to get lost, but I always got help from the people passing by.

Took a formal university campus tour at Georgetown and all in our group were thoroughly impressed. To provide some context, this was our 5th formal campus tour this year, which previously included Duke, UNC, UGA and 2 others. A very impressive school all around, from the location to the philosophy of education, people we met, the history of the school...one... More

We were invited by our hosts to an award ceremony here that was part of an educational summit. The campus is nice.

We were in Georgetown for the day and decided to check out The University by foot. Campus is gorgeous and fun to walk around. Interesting architecture and makes me want to go back to college again :) Highly recommend if you are nearby.

Visited last week. Campus is on a hill in Georgetown, over looking the canal and the Potomac. Tucked in or next to the beautiful Georgetown neighborhood of DC. Only bout 2 miles from downtown DC and attractions. Attractive campus with nice, modern cafeteria and student center. Newer freshman dorms are clean and spacious as well.
