From now until the end of NSO, Vox’s series of prefrosh previews will be in full swing, so check back regularly, freshmen, for advice on transitioning to Georgetown.
As evidenced by Georgetown’s recent establishment of a satellite campus, space is at a premium at 37th and O Street, though that hasn’t stopped the University from dutifully utilizing every acre the school sits upon. As current students will attest, giving directions to anywhere on the main campus is exceedingly difficult, so we hope this map helps you in your first few weeks in understanding where everything is.
In addition to locations, this map contains both photos and a little of Vox’s own commentary in each entry. Click the link below the map to get a better view.

Welcome to the inaugural post of 2011′s Prefrosh Preview, Vox‘s yearly contribution to the Hilltop lives of our incoming freshman class. Throughout the next few weeks, we’ll be running a bunch of posts designed to help the incoming class of 2015 navigate through those confusing first few weeks at Georgetown. In today’s post, it’s a map of campus, with important things about different spots you might want to know about.

The long-awaited University website redesign is making strides toward finishing soon. Yet, its launch date is still unknown.
Rumors on HoyaTalk suggest that the site is scheduled to launch in late October or early November.
In an email to Vox, Julie Green Bataille, associate vice president for communications, did not confirm those rumors, writing that there is no “specific launch date yet for the top tier site as [they] work through [UIS configuration] issues.”
Over the last few months, over 100 members of the Georgetown community—ranging from students and faculty to members of the board and prospective students—have tested the site to help shape its development.

From now until the end of August, expect to see plenty of posts aimed at the Class of 2014. We’re going to cover it all: academics, food options, drugs and alcohol, and the dreaded freshmen-year requirements.
Georgetown may not have the largest campus, but the University manages to pack a whole lot into the area. As any students can tell you, it can be tricky navigating from building to building, especially during your first hectic weeks on the Hilltop. And while Georgetown’s retro map can get you around, it won’t provide any helpful comments.
With that in mind, check out Vox‘s interactive campus map. We cover all the on-campus locations you’ll need to know, with a bit of our own commentary interspersed. If any incoming freshmen have any questions, don’t be afraid to comment—our readers can offer plenty of advice.

Editor’s Note: Every Friday between now and the beginning of school, we’ll be posting a feature specifically for the Class of 2013 to give them an advance introduction to Georgetown.
The first step for feeling at home is knowing your surroundings. Back in the olden days, you would’ve been stuck poring over Georgetown’s retro map, but thanks to the magic of Google, Vox is proud to present our very 21st century solution: a satellite map complete with pictures and snarky (but hopefully helpful) commentary about every major building and attraction on campus!
A note about the negativity: Georgetown has many, many virtues, but our facilities aren’t really one of them—try to take the curmudgeonliness in that context.
You can check out our map here, but it works better when you view it in its own window.
