Darnall Hall


Darnall Hall is a traditional style residence hall housing first year students on the north side of campus. With its positive reputation for being a close-knit and vibrant community, Darnall gives new Georgetown students an opportunity to make lifelong friends and genuine memories. Dedicated to Eleanor Darnall, the mother of Georgetown University founder John Carroll, Darnall Hall first opened in 1965 as a women’s residence hall. Darnall is home to the Explore DC Living Learning Community; a community of residents who have a common interest in exploring the DC area.
