Residential Building & Room Access

Georgetown University has a digital lock system called SwitchTech/BestDormakaba, across residence halls. Building access cards have been replaced with mobile GoCard access and physical keys have been swapped for a digital key via the SwitchTech/BestDormakaba app.

In order to utilize the systems, all commencement guests reserving commencement housing must have a smartphone device in order to access their rooms. 

One (1) mobile GoCard and one (1) digital key code (SwitchTech/BestDormakaba) will be emailed to the address on the reservation. Up to one additional party may be added per room to receive an additional mobile GoCard and digital key code. 

A room code will be emailed with the confirmation email to the address on the reservation. Additional parties can create an account and use that room code to be added to the room reservation. 

Due to the security features of this system, guests and current students may NOT reserve commencement housing utilizing their @georgetown.edu email address.
