Study Spaces

Biomedical Graduate Education (BGE) students will have access to study spaces in Dahlgren Memorial Library (DML). Study spaces must be reserved and are for individual use only (i.e., no group studying is permitted). BGE students can visit the DML reservation system directly.

BGE students will also be able to reserve study spaces in the Car Barn, Copley Formal Lounge, Blommer Science Library, Healey Family Center, Lauinger Library, and the Leavey Center. Visit to find building locations.

Students may make a six-hour reservation for a study space up to ten days in advance by visiting the Main Campus reservation system to browse each location for available hours. Some study spaces will be open for all approved students, some will only be open for undergraduate students and some will only be open for graduate students in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.


For the Spring 2021 semester, Georgetown is thrilled to provide our domestic and international students with WeWork’s All Access Benefit, to launch on February 1, 2021. Students will receive an email in January with further information about how they can opt-in to indicate their interest in taking advantage of this opportunity. Only those undergraduate and graduate students (including medical, law, and nursing students) who are enrolled in spring courses (including Ph.D. students writing their dissertations) will be eligible for WeWork access.
