Staying cool in Georgetown's Village C Residence Hall

Our home on campus is Georgetown's Village C Residence Hall. You will be a part of a dynamic community of students and staff who live together in one residence hall.

Whether you’re watching a movie or working on a group project, it’s great to live with your friends. And if you have any questions, your Resident Counselor (RC) lives down the hall and is there for you 24/7.

Here's Our Set-Up:

  • Live in a double room with private bathroom.
  • Every air-conditioned room includes a bed, study desk, closet, and Wi-Fi.
  • Lounges, game rooms, laundry facilities, and the Summer Discovery office are all in our residence hall.
  • We are only a short walk from the O’Donovan Dining Hall, academic buildings, and the Yates Field House. Did we mention that we can see the Potomac River from our windows?

Delicious All-You-Can-Eat Dining on Campus

Eat in the modernized O’Donovan Dining Hall. Enjoy two meals daily, while on campus. Choose from daily options at the salad bar, deli counter, pizza oven, dessert bar, and more. Are you a vegetarian? Do you have food allergies? Special diets are not a problem.

Your Health + Safety are our Primary Concern

Our RCs are committed to the support and supervision of Summer Discovery students. Daily sign-ins and room checks are mandated for your safety. You are free to walk around campus and M Street in Georgetown (our ‘home area’) in small groups. If you have a question, RCs are on duty to help.

Not feeling well? Summer Discovery staff make all medical appointments, accompany students to medical facilities, obtain prescription medications, and notify parents after medical visits. Appointments are made with University Health Services or the Georgetown University Medical Center.
