In addition to the information on our website, prospective students can participate in several different kinds of information sessions to learn more about the admissions process and the graduate programs offered at Georgetown.

CAMPUS MAP

On-campus Information Sessions

These sessions are typically offered every other week from April through November. The on-campus visit consists of a presentation and a campus tour conducted by a graduate admissions officer. This is a great opportunity to see the university, learn more about our programs and application process and as well as graduate student life.

Sessions, which last approximately 75 minutes, are held in the Car Barn, which is located at 3520 Prospect Street, N.W., in the Graduate School Conference Room located on the fourth floor.

When you enter the Car Barn, you will be on the fourth floor. Turn left when you enter and proceed through the building and past the elevator and exit onto the patio through the back doors. Continue across the patio and enter the Graduate School through the next set of doors. The Conference Room is located to the left at the very end of the hallway.

Note that registration opens 2 months before each information session.

Webinar Sessions

If you cannot attend an on-campus session or if sessions have concluded for the season, consider attending a webinar. The webinar will cover the same content as an on-campus session: background about Georgetown, the application process, financial aid, and some discussion of student life. Webinars will last about 30 minutes, with a 20-25 minute presentation followed by questions. (Due to technical limitations, these sessions are capped at 120 attendees.)

If you are hosting a fair or other event and would like to invite the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, please e-mail an invitation to gradmail@georgetown.edu.

Group Visits

We are happy to host group visits, subject to the availability of our admissions staff. Visit itineraries are customizable, but generally consist of an admissions information session, tour of campus, and potentially a meeting with academic departments appropriate for your students’ interests. Visits tend to last about two hours from arrival to departure. We can easily accommodate groups of up to 20 prospective students.

If you are a faculty member, program administrator, or other student leader, you can request a group visit by sending an e-mail to gradmail@georgetown.edu. In your e-mail, please include:

  • Information about you and your group
  • Requested date and time of visit (no weekend availability)
  • One or two alternate dates and times, if possible
  • A list of students you expect to attend with current major, intended graduate major, specific research interests (if known), and e-mail address
  • Any special requests beyond an information session, tour, and department meetings
  • Any accessibility accommodations necessary

We request at least two weeks' advanced notice for all group visits. For groups larger than 20, four weeks notice is preferred so we can reserve larger spaces.

For directions to campus, please visit here. The Graduate School's Admissions Office is in the Car Barn at 3520 Prospect Street, NW, and most visits will begin there. Note that there is limited parking on and near campus, and there is no parking available for vehicles larger than a van. Georgetown provides transportation from the Rosslyn Metro Station (Blue, Orange, and Silver Lines), the Dupont Circle Metro Station (Red Line), and the Georgetown Law Campus. We are also happy to help you understand DC’s transit system and the best way to get between universities and DC’s tourist attractions.

We look forward to seeing you on campus!
