Partners & Families

We would like to extend a special welcome to those of you who are wives, husbands, partners, or children of international students and scholars! You will find that the Georgetown community, and the Washington, D.C. area, offer a wide range of opportunities. Here is just a sampling of the many resources and services available to you during your time at Georgetown.

We have provided detailed arrival information on our orientations website for incoming international students and scholars. You will find information on preparing for departure to the U.S., arriving at local airports, getting around D.C., opening a bank account, finding temporary housing, and much more on the Pre-Arrival and Post-Arrival webpages.
