About

Ida Ryan Hall & Isaac Hawkins Hall is home to the Spirit of Georgetown Residential Academy. Celebrating the nine tenets of the Spirit of Georgetown, the 148 students selected to reside in the Spirit of Georgetown Residential Academy will have the unique opportunity to reflect on their time at Georgetown through formative activities and events, founded on strong community engagement and ownership.

For many decades, the Jesuit community of Georgetown University built their community within the corridors of these historic buildings.  Built at the turn of the 19th century, nestled within the historic quad of campus and overlooking the Potomac River, the Former Jesuit Residence has a lasting significance on Georgetown’s campus.
