Address for Georgetown's Front gates (if using Uber, Lyft, or taxi):

If traveling to Georgetown using a ride-sharing app or taxi, use the address below (not the address above for the parking garage).  This will bring you right to the front gates of Georgetown's campus. Healy Hall, where the Conference will take place, is straight inside the gates:

1401 37th Street NW
Washington, DC 20007

Please note: This is a residential address, but it will bring you right to the front gates. Entering the actual address of the front gates (at 3700 O Street NW) into Uber will result in the ride being routed through the back of campus, and will not bring you to the front gates.


Georgetown University provides a complimentary shuttle service – Georgetown University Transportation Service (GUTS) from both the DuPont Circle and Rosslyn metro stops. The GUTS shuttle begins operating early in the morning on weekdays, and runs throughout the day in 10- to 20-minute increments. The GUTS shuttle will drop you off on the campus by McDonough Memorial Gymnasium, a few minutes' walk from the Hotel and Conference Center. Allow a minimum of 30 minutes to reach the Center from either of the Metro stops. However, the GUTS shuttle runs only sporadically on weekends; the spring 2018 schedule for the DuPont Circle and Rosslyn shuttles will be posted in early January.

From DuPont Circle: Use the Q Street exit. Exit via the escalator. At the top of the escalator, turn left and cross 20th Street. Turn left, walk down 20th Street, and take the first right onto Massachusetts Avenue. There is no sign for the stop, but the shuttle will stop on Massachusetts just past 20th Street. Wait near the green fire hydrant.

From Rosslyn: Take the escalator out the only exit from the Rosslyn station. Turn right at the top of the escalator and walk toward the street. When you get to the street (N. Moore Street), turn left. Cross 19th Street and you will see a sign for the Georgetown University Shuttle. The stop is at the intersection of N. Moore and 19th.
