Directions and Parking

Getting to Georgetown University (Main Campus)

For Commencement Day, we urge families and guests to travel to Georgetown University Main Campus via taxi or public transportation. Please note that the Georgetown University Transportation Shuttles (G.U.T.S.) will not be in service on Sunday, May 21, 2017. There is extremely limited parking on main campus.

Please leave yourself ample time to get to and from main campus for Commencement.  Georgetown can be extremely congested and we would not want you to miss any part of this wonderful event while stuck in traffic.
