There is no place like home and there is no place like Georgetown...
Reunion Weekend 2019 provides a great opportunity to rediscover what made Georgetown "home" for you and to renew your lifelong connection to this special place. All members of the undergraduate classes of 1969, 1974, 1979, 1984, 1989, 1994, 1999, 2004, 2009 and 2014, as well as our Magis alumni (Class of 1968 and beyond) and School of Dentistry alumni are invited to come home to the Hilltop and reconnect with the spirit of Georgetown.
More than 4,500 alumni, friends and family members gather annually on campus for three days of celebration. It's a fantastic time to reconnect with friends and classmates and see how your Georgetown has grown into the university it is today. Weekend events include the traditional class parties, campus tours, activities for Hoyas of all ages and a variety of fascinating panels featuring some of our most prominent alumni as well as beloved faculty.
Excited for your reunion?
Let us know you're planning to come home to Georgetown! Add your name to let your classmates know you're saving the date for reunion. Official registration information will be mailed in the spring.
On-campus housing registration will be available once Reunion 2019 registration opens in the spring.
Staying on campus completes the back-to-school experience, putting you in the center of the action. Select residence halls will be open for on-campus housing during Reunion Weekend.
All rooms are carpeted, air-conditioned, and equipped with standard dorm room furnishings. It's a blank slate for you to make your own for the weekend, just like you did freshman year! Linens provided include a bath towel for each individual, bed sheets, blanket and pillow. There is no daily housekeeping service or linen exchange. We recommend bringing an additional towel for your stay. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide cribs or rollaway beds.
Hotel blocks with reunion rates will be posted as they become available.
