Visiting Special Collections at Georgetown

The Special Collections Division is open Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5:00 pm. Please check our online calendar at the left for holiday closures and special events.

We are located on the fifth floor of Lauinger Library, on the southeast corner of the campus at 37th and N Streets N.W. We are approximately one mile from the Rosslyn Metro station, across the Key Bridge. Walking across the bridge provides a beautiful view of campus. As an alternative, the Georgetown University Transportation Shuttle (GUTS) bus service operates shuttle routes connecting the University campus to nearby Metrorail stations at Rosslyn for the Blue and Orange lines and Dupont Circle for the Red line. Visitors may ride the GUTS bus free of charge after showing a picture ID and signing in when boarding. See the GUTS webpage for a schedule of departure. Parking is extremely limited and expensive. The Southwest parking garage may be entered from Canal Road. However, we really do strongly suggest public transportation.

We are open to all users who present some form of photographic identification and follow our rules. Advance notice of your visit, though not required, is recommended. Informational calls are accepted at (202) 687-7444. Reference requests by email are accepted, and you may direct email inquiries as recommended by our Staff Contacts List.
