Georgetown University Main Campus
Georgetown University’s 100-acre main campus overlooks the Potomac River with dramatic views of Key Bridge, Rosslyn, and the bluffs of Northern Virginia. Many of the 54 buildings inside Healy Gates were built in the Gothic style.
Healy Hall, designed in Neo-Medieval style and built from 1877 to 1879, is the architectural gem of Georgetown’s campus and is a National Historic Landmark. The main campus contains many other traditional pieces of architecture including Dahlgren Quadrangle, Copley Hall, and White-Gravenor. Some of the more modern areas of campus include the Bunn Intercultural Center and Red Square, which has become a focus of student life.
In addition to the large lawn in front of Healy Hall, there are green areas of campus that include fountains, a cemetery, large clusters of flowers, groves of trees, and open quadrangles.
