TownhousesUniversity townhouses surround the Georgetown campus along 36th, 37th, O, N, and Prospect Streets. Townhouses vary in size, levels, and capacity, and contain unique layout features. Some houses are designated as historic by the Georgetown Historical Society. While these houses serve as an alternative to on-campus residence buildings, townhouse residents remain conveniently close to campus and receive University maintenance services.
