Exploring Tsai Hall

  • The Vision

    The new academic law building elevates Georgetown Law’s strengths, enhances the student experience, and meets critical, longstanding needs for space. With 200,000 square feet, it positions us to compete with peer institutions for decades to come.

    Generous alumni have stepped up with financial support. In order to break ground, additional funding is needed. Please email or call 1-202-662-9671 to learn about opportunities to name a space in the building. Or, use the secure giving page and Make a Gift Now.

  • Penthouse Event Pavilion with Terrace

    The top floor of the building will house a 2,500-square-foot, state-of-the art events venue, with capacity for 100 people seated, or 150 standing. With floor-to-ceiling windows to the east and west and an outdoor terrace encircling the entire floor, guests will enjoy spectacular views, including that of the U.S. Capitol Building.

    Naming Opportunity Available
  • Grand Event Pavilion

    The largest single room in the building, this 3,800-square-foot convening space can accommodate 250 people standing, or 168 seated. Outfitted with cutting-edge technology, a moving wall can partition the space into two smaller event rooms. With floor-to-ceiling windows to the west, guests will enjoy stunning views, including that of the Washington Monument.

    Naming Opportunity Available
  • North Event Room

    This northwest-facing events room holds 150 people standing, or 112 seated. It features state-of-the-art tech and access to a Green Room for receiving and holding guest speakers.

  • Reception Hall

    This impressive space will run almost the entire length of the building’s eastern side. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide sweeping views and copious natural light. The space can serve a pre-function area for events held in the central Grand Event Pavilion, or it can be used in its own right as an event venue.

    Naming Opportunity Available
  • Boardroom

    The flexible Boardroom will serve as a primary meeting location for leadership, a small dining room, and a conference room. Natural light from two sides and compelling 9th-story views lend the room a vibrant energy.

    Naming Opportunity Available
  • Event Terraces

    These large terraces on the east and west sides of the 9th floor will serve as venues for impressive outdoor receptions and student events. Georgetown’s noted “D.C. Difference” will be impossible to miss, when surrounded by views of the U.S. Capitol Building and other local landmarks. For larger events, these terraces can be paired with the Grand Event Pavilion or North Event Room.

    Naming Opportunities Available
  • Side Terraces

    Terraces on the western side of floors 4, 6, and 8 offer students and faculty outdoor options for studying, meeting, working — or perhaps just socializing.

    Naming Opportunities Available
  • Center for Clinics

    The first-in-class Clinical Programs have long been one of the jewels in the crown of Georgetown Law. With the new Center for Clinics, they will gain a home befitting their status and importance to our community. Located in the southern half of the building on floors 5, 6, and 7, the Center is reached via a well appointed reception area. It will house four Clinical Suites, each containing faculty and fellow offices, conference rooms, soundproofed workrooms for interviewing clients, and large collaborative workspaces where students will work on cases alongside Clinic directors and staff.

    Naming Opportunity Available
  • Faculty Lounge and Event Space

    This room will most often be used as a Faculty Lounge but was designed to double as an event space. With windows on two sides, overlooking Eleanor Holmes Norton Green and the Georgetown Law Clock Tower, it is a particularly atmospheric setting.

    Naming Opportunity Available
  • Two-Story Atrium (Floor 3)

    This atrium ascends from the third floor on the west side of the building. The space’s sunlit, airy ambience serves to inspire ideas and build community. The open room allows students plenty of space to connect for study purposes, or relaxation.

    Naming Opportunity Available
  • Classrooms

    The vision for a new academic building began with the recognition that the Law Center needed additional classrooms — not in order to grow its enrollment numbers, but to best serve our student body at its current size. With legal education increasingly favoring collaborative learning and smaller class sizes, the 16 smaller classrooms planned for the new building will afford students a personal, interactive experience. Equipped with cutting-edge technology and discussion-ready design concepts, these rooms will enable Georgetown Law to maintain its status as a leader in legal pedagogy. Designs call for rooms with 75, 60, 50, and 24 seats.

    Naming Opportunities Available
  • Student Lounges

    These bustling spaces on the 3rd and 4th floors will allow students to share meals, study, collaborate, organize activities, and socialize. On the east side of the building, they feature energizing views of Eleanor Holmes Norton Green and the iconic Georgetown Law Clock Tower.

    Naming Opportunities Available
  • Two-Story Atrium (Floor 2)

    A study of the Law Campus identified a need to increase the number and size of indoor areas where students can comfortably interact with each other. This attractive atrium, situated in the northwest corner of the building, ascends from the second floor. Its plentiful seating, abundance of natural light, and location beside three classrooms position it to become a popular gathering spot.

    Naming Opportunity Available
  • Moot Courtroom

    The storied history of Georgetown Law’s student Moot Court program includes winning the inaugural National Moot Court Competition in 1950, taking the Jessup International Moot Court Competition in 1987, and becoming the first three-time winner of the Kenyon National Moot Court Championship. With the completion of the new law building, the program will move into a purpose-built moot courtroom featuring a 76-seat tiered gallery, 5-judge bench, 12-person jury box, a separate deliberation room for judges or jury members, and two large, electronic evidence display screens.

  • Grand Atrium

    One of the building’s signature spaces, the three-story Grand Atrium fronts the building’s west side and features an ascending “living wall” of greenery at its south end. First- and second-story walls of windows deliver natural light to the building’s subterranean lower level. There, students can work in one of eight study rooms, collaborate on projects at large group tables, or take a breather with friends on a sofa or at the hangout steps. With two classrooms and the Moot Courtroom also nearby, the Grand Atrium may become the most high-traffic space in the building.
