Living & Learning

The Office of Residential Living strives to create communities where students learn, grow and thrive.  Through an integrative learning approach, Residential Living bridges students’ experiences in and out of the classroom to foster formation in the Jesuit tradition.  Residential communities are led by the professional Community Director staff and student Resident Assistants, in partnership with community Chaplains and Faculty-in-Residence.  

Each residential community engages students’ residential education through intentional programs and initiatives designed to meet the needs of the residents termed Educational Plans.  Educational Plans come to life through community programming, one-on-one conversations, mentoring opportunities, and participation in campus events.  Each community’s plan is based on the five “Magis Measures”: Inclusivity, Care, Student-Ownership,Faith & Justice, and Learning.

Residential Living proudly offers the following initiatives as ways in which students can engage within their communities and learn about themselves:

Chaplains-in-Residence (CIR)

Get to know the Chaplains and Jesuits who live in our residence halls and provide opportunities for engagement with students

Faculty-in-Residence (FIR)

Learn about the 6 faculty members currently live in residential communities across campus. 


What do you like about your residence hall? What would you like to change? InterHall strives to be an advocate for students to the administration and campus as a whole, and we fight for your needs and wants. We are strong promoters of community development and growth, and our initiatives and events help to create strong bonds between all residents and their community on campus.

To acheive these goals, InterHall has three main branches: Programming, Advocacy and Funding

InterHall also coordinates Georgetown's Hall Councils, which operate in each residence hall to do programming and advocacy on a building-wide scale.  Talk to your RA or Hall Director if you're interested in joining your Hall Council!
