Current Construction Projects

Stay current on construction progress and impacts

Georgetown University is investing in new spaces to make progress toward developing a more vibrant living and learning campus. This page includes information about current construction projects, including project status, campus impacts, and timelines. Current construction projects include (see more information below):

  • Dining Services 
  • Main Campus Bookstore
  • Walsh/De La Cruz Gallery of Art
  • Hoya Court Pathway


Safety is our number one priority during construction. We ask for your heightened awareness as you travel around campus and to adhere to the following safety precautions:

  • Exercise caution when walking, biking, or driving in the vicinity of construction sites
  • Obey construction signs and construction personnel providing direction through the work zones
  • Utilize sidewalks, stay within enclosed walking areas, and follow pavement markings
  • Report any unsafe conditions or emergencies to the Georgetown University Police Department at 687-4343


Construction projects will have impacts on campus, including changing pedestrian, bike, and vehicle routes and creating additional activity on campus. We are committed to maintaining a safe and accessible campus for our entire community during construction.

Please report any concerns or questions about construction impacts to Planning and Facilities Management will notify the appropriate project manager to resolve the issue directly or work with construction contractors to do so.
