FRIDAY: No on-campus parking is available on Friday, October 18, because this will be a workday for Georgetown staff and an appointment day for medical center patients. Guests are encouraged to take Metro and transfer to free Georgetown University shuttles (GUTS) at either Dupont Circle (Red Line) or Rosslyn (Blue/Orange Line). You may also take taxis to and from campus. On campus, taxis are generally available at the Healy Gates and adjacent to the Leavey Conference Center entrance. A limited number of metered parking spaces are available on Reservoir Road, 37th Street and Prospect Street. Please pay attention to parking signs in the neighborhoods near campus, as the hourly limits are strictly enforced by the city with tickets issued if not observed.

SATURDAY AND SUNDAY: Free guest parking will be available in the Southwest Quadrangle garage, which can be accessed from the Georgetown University entrance on Canal Road.
