Global Living Community

The GLC is an intercultural living and learning environment for 20 Georgetown undergraduate students, a mix of both international and U.S. citizens. The GLC is a part of Georgetown's Living and Learning Communities Program. The primary goal of the GLC is to create a community in which intercultural understanding extends beyond the classroom into daily student life. Previously located on the 2nd floor of Copley, the GLC will be moving to the brand new Northeast Triangle Residence Hall for the 2016-2017 school year. 

Applications for the 2016-2017 school year are now closed and will reopen for the 2017-2018 school year in December 2016. For more information about the GLC, or if you have questions about living in the GLC, please contact Stacy Williams at

GLC activities include:

  • Fall Retreat
    • The GLC begins the year with a one day retreat off campus. Members get to know one another through interactive games, cultural exercises, and outdoor activities, as well as plan for community events and activities throughout the year.
  • Global Dinners (GDs)
    • Each month, a member of Georgetown's faculty is invited to share dinner and conversation about current international issues. GDs broaden knowledge of international affairs and provide an opportunity to interact with faculty outside the classroom setting.
  • Community Service Activities
    • GLC residents host one community service event each semester. Activities in the past have included environmental cleanups, a visit to DC public schools, and participation in Relay for Life.
  • Cultural Activities
    • Each semester, GLC residents organize a cultural activity - cooking a new international dish to share, celebration of international holidays, visits to museums or cultural performances, etc.
  • Social Activities
    • Each semester, GLC residents organize a social outing or activity based on the group's interests. In the past these activities have included picnics, ice skating, hiking trips, dessert nights, and more.
  • Spring Retreat
    • In January, the GLC gathers for a day-long on campus retreat to reflect on their experiences thus far and plan for events in the spring semester.
