Washington D.C.'s Georgetown University has big plans for the new year. Via its website, the university announced that it will open a campus in downtown D.C. in late 2013. The downtown campus will be located where 7th Street and Massachusetts Avenue NW intersect:

Scheduled to open in late 2013, the Georgetown University School of Continuing Studies will move to a new, principal space located at the intersection of 7th St. and Massachusetts Ave., NW in downtown Washington, D.C. The new Georgetown Downtown campus will help the School fulfill its mission of educating students to become more reflective, active, purposeful citizens who strive to make a difference to their own lives and to the world around them.

Located in one of the city’s most vibrant and accessible neighborhoods, this expansion from the Hilltop will further position the University as an anchor of Washington, D.C., expanding educational opportunity and fomenting community engagement through learning and service. The location was carefully selected to be accessible to our community of students and professionals and features comprehensive transportation options. The School is working with architects to design a space that reimagines the educational experience for the 21st century. Students, faculty, staff, alumni, professionals and community leaders will be able to connect with each other in new ways and in a neighborhood that offers hundreds of amenities and services.

So, just like that, Georgetown just got a little bigger.
