GU student move-in weekend

Information provided by Georgetown University Neighborhood News

We're excited to welcome new students to campus on Friday, August 26! Move-in for incoming students begins Friday and we expect campus to be busy during the weekend. 

The university is encouraging employees to adjust their travel patterns on Friday and is consolidating move-in activities on campus. During move-in weekend, the Office of Neighborhood Life will operate SNAP Friday and Saturday from pm to 3 am and Sunday and Monday from 1 m to 3 am. The university is also running a move-in drive for students and will collect bulk trash from students moving into off-campus houses. 

Please call the University Helpline at (202) 687-8413, 24 hours a day, for noise, trash, or other neighborhood concerns. 

Below are important dates for the beginning of the semester. We invite our neighbors to join us for the Mass of the Holy Spirit on Tuesday, August 30, at 4:30 pm on the White-Gravenor Esplanade to mark the beginning of the new academic year.
