GU Campus Plan Detailed

The detailed agreement between the community and Georgetown University on the Campus Plan was released for comment and discussion on Thursday. The key elements of the seven-year plan, to end in December, 2017 are:

--an undergraduate student cap of 6,675 on the main campus and an overall cap of 14,106 students, plus a “more accurate method for measuring enrollment semester-by-semester;”

--moving 450 undergraduates on campus by fall, 2015, including from the townhouses on 36th Street NW so that these buildings can be used for faculty and staff housing or daytime administrative offices, and

--an overall commitment to a “peaceful, quiet atmosphere” for the adjacent Georgetown, Burleith and Foxhall residential neighborhoods, including bringing “student social life on campus,” clear standards for off-campus behavior, a “commitment to explore” GU-sponsored graduate housing outside of these areas and relief from GU-related parking and traffic problems.

The Georgetown Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2E has scheduled a special meeting to discuss the plan on Thursday, June 14, 2012, 6:30 p.m, at Georgetown Visitation School, 35th Street and Volta Place, N.W.
