New South


New South is a traditional style residence hall housing first year students. The building setup is fairly common with its long hallways, community restrooms, and a common room on each floor which provide a very social atmosphere for new Georgetown students! Fully renovated in 2004, New South was originally given its name due to it being the “southernmost” building on the main campus.
