Georgetown University student move-in begins this weekend for both students on and off-campus. Below is some brief information about move-in and the resources available to students and community members.

Students will begin arriving this Friday, August 24. Our neighbors should expect additional traffic and activity around campus this day and throughout the weekend. Classes begin on Wednesday, August 29.

Undergraduate students living off-campus are required to attend a mandatory off-campus orientation session with the Office of Neighborhood Life. This year, orientation sessions begin on Saturday, August 25. When students attend orientation, they are also provided a copy of the Hoya Living Guide outlining student responsibilities living in the community.

To assist with bulk trash associated with students returning to the neighborhood, our facilities team will be collecting bulk trash from off-campus student rental properties through September 9.  

The university will operate extended SNAP (Student Neighborhood Assistance Program) patrols this weekend Thursday 10 pm–3 am, Friday & Saturday 5 pm–3 am, Sunday–Tuesday 10 pm–3 am.  

Should you have any concerns this weekend or throughout the year related to noise, trash, or other neighborhood issues, please remember to call the University’s 24/7 Helpline at (202) 687-8413. Calling the Helpline allows the university to respond in real time, address any issues, and create a report for follow up.

Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help further. I can be reached at (202) 687-0364 and Catherine (Cat) Finnegan, Community Director, Burleith and Foxhall, is reachable at (202) 687-5138 or
