Georgetown University plans to welcome back roughly 2,000 undergraduate students to campus in the fall, including first-years, some seniors, and students who have extenuating circumstances that make it difficult to continue their studies elsewhere.
Classes will be largely available online, though there will be some in-person learning available for students on campus, the university president announced in his letter to the Georgetown community Monday.
Georgetown, which enrolls around 7,000 undergraduate students, left open the possibility of allowing more students to come back to campus, starting with seniors “if the conditions of the pandemic permit.”
Students will live in single occupancy dorm rooms. Like many other colleges and universities planning to reopen this fall, Georgetown will require students and faculty to be tested upon arrival to campus, and testing will be deployed throughout the semester. The school will collaborate with DC’s contact tracing program.
