Directions to the Department
Getting to Georgetown University can be a difficult task if you are not familiar with the area. If possible it is best to use public transportation. Below are a couple of methods of transportation.
1. The University runs a shuttle bus near the Rosslyn Metro station. The pick up location is at corner of 19th and Moore St. These buses are white and have Georgetown University on the side of them in blue letters. The bus will cost you a dollar each way. (The bus drivers don’t normally have change, so it is best to have a couple of dollar bills handy). If you need further information check the Rosslyn Shuttle Schedule.
2. If you are traveling on the Red line of Metro you can catch a University shuttle from the Dupont Circle Metro Station. The pick up location is at corner of 20th and Massachusetts Avenue. These buses are white and have Georgetown University on the side of them in blue letters. The bus will cost you a dollar each way. (The bus drivers don’t normally have change, so it is best to have a couple of dollar bills handy). If you need further information check the Dupont Circle Shuttle Schedule.

The Economics Department is located in the Intercultural Center building which is fairly close to the shuttle bus drop off. From the shuttle bus drop off, you want to walk to the right. You will pass a bus shelter on your left and than continue up the inclined path. You will pass a large building on your right and walk under a brick arch. Directly after the arch you will see a large square paved with red bricks, the building is immediately on the right. The Department is located on the 5th floor.
The ICC Auditorium is on the First Floor of the Intercultural Center Building (ICC). You may enter the building from the west or from the east and take elevators or stairs to the first floor. The main entrance of the building is from the east and is on the third floor. Stairs down to the Auditorium are straight ahead. Elevators are to the left of the main doors. The entrance at the southwest corner of the building is on the first level; on the northwest corner of the building is on the second level. The Auditorium is around the corner to the left.
