Travel and Parking Tips

We would like to offer some important travel and parking tips as you plan to attend your Georgetown University’s Commencement ceremonies.

Tips for Travel

  • We urge you to consider taking a taxi or ride share to campus due to limited parking. We recommend getting dropped off at 35th & N, O or P Streets, NW to avoid unnecessary congestion.
  • Georgetown University provides shuttle service (GUTS) from Dupont and Rosslyn areas during the week. There will be special Saturday service from Rosslyn only, 7:00 a.m-7:00 p.m. 
  • In the event of inclement weather, commencement ceremonies may be moved. You may visit the Commencement website or call the University Weather Line 202-687-7669 to confirm ceremony locations. 
  • Campus Maps will be available on campus at the Program Tent in Healy Circle and will be posted on our website for printing.
  • Free accessible shuttle buses will be available to escort people from the parking facilities to the graduation site. 
  • Please allot extra time for travel to campus, as delays could occur on the roads leading to the University.

Tips for Parking

Parking for graduation will require patience and a little planning prior to arrival.

  • Please enter campus via Canal Road only
  • All Georgetown University Hospital (MedStar) parking during Commencement is at the regular daily rate. You will be charged full prices if you park in one of the Hospital lots. Current rate is $75.00 per day.
