We are currently installing new doors in the stairwell in Lauinger Library. During this time, visitors will not be able to use landings that are under construction, either to enter that floor or pass through en route to another. We encourage visitors to use the elevators, although the stairwell may still be used to access floors that are not under construction. Landings under construction should only be used in the case of an emergency.

Have any GU graduates won a Nobel Prize?

It does not appear so. However, we have awarded honorary degrees to at least eleven Nobel Laureates:

Christian Anfinsen (Nobel Prize in Chemistry, 1972);
Oscar Arias-Sánchez (Peace, 1987);
John Bardeen (Physics, 1956 & 1972);
William Fowler (Physics, 1983);
Corneille Heymans (Physiology or Medicine, 1938);
Frank B. Kellogg (Peace, 1929);
Barbara McClintock (Physiology or Medicine, 1983);
Mohamed Anwar el Sadat (Peace, 1978);
Glenn Seaborg (Chemistry, 1951);
Mother Teresa (Peace, 1979);
and Elie Wiesel (Peace, 1986).

A twelfth Laureate, Robert Richardson (Physics, 1996), has a somewhat different Georgetown connection—he was born in the University Hospital.
