University Expectations

Living off campus is a privilege and an opportunity for learning and personal growth. It is a time when you are not only a student at Georgetown but also a member of a local community, whether it’s in the District, Virginia, or Maryland.

The University expects that you will be responsible citizens and good neighbors. All Georgetown students are expected to comply with Georgetown University policies, the Code of Student Conduct, the Office of Neighborhood Life policies, local laws, and general community standards of consideration for kindness toward others.

We further encourage you to conduct yourselves in ways that reflect the best of who you are and the best of the University, and to be women and men for others.

Remember also that the University’s Code of Student Conduct applies to all Georgetown University undergraduate students (whether residing on or off campus or studying abroad), graduate students and all students enrolled in the School of Continuing Studies. We want for your time living off campus to be productive and rewarding. Please do not hesitate to contact ONL for assistance and support at (202) 687.5138.
