Subject: New Canal Road Attendant Booth + Ride Sharing Service Changes

Dear Members of the Georgetown University Community, In an effort to create a more secure and pedestrian-friendly campus we are happy to begin operations of a new Canal Road entrance attendant booth, which will prevent unauthorized vehicles from entering the campus, on Monday, March 6, 2017.

University and MedStar faculty and staff with parking privileges will need to display their hang tags for access. Official University deliveries, and visitors entering campus via Reservoir Road, are not affected by this operational change, and accessibility needs will continue to be accommodated. Otherwise visitors to campus are affected as follows:

For-hire vehicles (such as taxis, Ubers or Lyfts) entering campus from Canal Road will be directed to pick up or drop off at the Georgetown Hotel and Conference Center via Reservoir Road, or at the main gates of the University. These service providers have been notified of this change. If you are getting picked up or dropped off on campus, please use “3700 O Street NW” as the address for the main gates, and “3800 Reservoir Road NW” as the address for the Reservoir Road entrance.
• Visitors entering campus from Canal Road will be directed to the Southwest Parking garage.
• Aside from Official University deliveries and catering, food deliveries by car will not be permitted to enter campus via Canal Road.

Thank you for your support in making our campus safe and pedestrian-friendly. Please contact the Georgetown University Police Department at 202-687-4343 or police@georgetown.edu with any questions.

With best wishes,

Jay Gruber
Chief of Police and Assistant Vice President for Public Safety
