Research Housing Options

Exchange students are encouraged to live in on-campus housing where they can experience all of the benefits of residential on-campus living including a vibrant student life atmosphere and a robust network of student support services. Community Directors and Residential Assistants are available to assist with administrative and facilities issues, safety concerns, and emergency situations. Students who choose to live off campus will be responsible for securing their own housing. The Office of Neighborhood life can provide resources for finding an apartment and/or roommate as well as guidance on signing a lease.

Georgetown’s Office of Residential Living will provide an application and instructions to students who select the on-campus housing option. On-campus accommodation types vary: residence halls, room options, and costs can be explored here. Single rooms are reserved for students with a documented medical need.

Full year exchange students may apply to the Global Living Community (GLC). If you are interested in the GLC please indicate this in your application;you will be contacted directly about their application process. There are many other Living Learning Communities (LLC) on campus in addition to the GLC, and full year students are encouraged to apply to one that matches their interests.  

Meal Plans

Students living off campus are not required to purchase a meal plan but may do so if they wish. Students living on campus in a traditional residence hall without access to a kitchen must purchase a meal plan. Students living in a suite or student apartment with a shared kitchen are not required to purchase a meal plan but may do so if they wish.* Meal plan options vary; descriptions and costs can be found via Hoya Hospitality.

* Due to current campus protocols related to COVID-19, students living in a suite or student apartment are required to purchase a meal plan. (AY 2021-2022)
