Date Published: August 13, 2021
  1. The Tombs

While technically not on campus, The Tombs is Georgetown University. A restaurant in the Georgetown neighborhood just outside the gates, The Tombs offers good pub fare, a popular Sunday brunch, and a great place to catch a Hoya’s game.

  1. Grab-and-Go Food Options

Looking to get a quick bite in between problem sets? There are several grab-and-go food options located on and near campus. Some of the most popular include Chick-fil-A, Royal Jacket, Compass Coffee, Booeymongers, and Wisemiller’s Deli, home of the famous “Chicken Madness.”

  1. Campus Study Spaces

Need a quiet space to study or a private room to meet with your team about a group project? Georgetown has study spaces across campus, including in Lauinger Library and The Car Barn. There are two Graduate Study Lounges in Lauinger, located on the first and fourth floors. These rooms are designated quiet with laptop use permitted and are solely for Graduate Students.

  1. Leo’s

Leo’s is Georgetown’s “all-you-care-to-eat” dining hall, offering fresh Mediterranean, Latin, and Asian-inspired options, a pastry shop and a small marketplace.  

  1. GU Politics

While McCourt has amazing student organizations, you might consider getting involved with the Institute of Politics and Public Service, or GU Politics, which while a part of the McCourt School, is open to all members of the Georgetown community. Visit their home in Healy Hall for discussion groups and office hours with their Fellows, career trainings and workshops, and more.

  1. Call Your Mother and Saxby’s coffee

Located across the street from one another at the corner of 35th and O Streets, Call Your Mother bagels and Saxby’s coffee are two great places to start your day before a long day of classes at McCourt.

  1. Yates Field House

After a long week of problem sets and group projects, head over to Yates Field House for a yoga class or other group fitness program, swimming, or racquet sports to reset yourself for the week ahead. Membership required.
