125 E Street

Investing in our growing downtown presence

Home to the Georgetown Law Center for nearly 50 years, the university’s growing campus in the shadow of the Capitol, at the heart of Washington, D.C., offers exceptional opportunities to work, learn, and serve in a city that shapes the world. Georgetown’s Capitol Campus recently expanded with the acquisition of 500 First Street—a building now home to select interdisciplinary centers from the law school, main campus, and medical center, as well as select undergraduate programs.

We now seek to anchor our presence downtown with a new academic building. Planned at more than 130,000 square feet, the 125 E Street building will enhance learning and collaboration, host major university convenings, welcome visiting scholars from afar, and amplify Georgetown’s presence in the heart of our nation’s capital.
