"A center of life on the main campus"
The Jesuit Community Residence anchors Georgetown University’s new Southwest Quadrangle, part of a transformative “shift in campus movement and life.” The design supports the interrelated aspects of Jesuit life, including intellectual work, prayer, worship, and recreation, while also recalling the university’s distinctive architectural heritage. The four-story building features three floors of private residences, including an infirmary and assisting living quarters; a 72-seat dining room; a chapel; offices; a library; and recreational areas.

"When we moved from our location in Dahlgren Quadrangle, home to the Georgetown University Jesuit community since 1789, we were leaving a relatively low-profile set of buildings. The new Wolfington Hall, by virtue of its splendid architecture, now supports multiple ways to offer hospitality to the University. Thanks greatly to its design, the residence plays a dynamic role in the life of the University. It is a graceful building and a gracious home."
