Return to Recreation FAQs

Georgetown University requires students, faculty, staff and visitors to have received a primary series (e.g., two doses of an mRNA vaccine) and, when eligible, an additional dose (booster) of the COVID-19 vaccine or have a Georgetown-approved religious or medical exemption (See below for more information on exemptions). 

All members must upload proof of vaccination to the Campus Recreation COVID-19 Vaccination Portal. Georgetown complies with all applicable privacy, confidentiality, and public health laws relating to the collection and maintenance of vaccination records.

We will notify you of your upload approval status within seven (7) business days via email. Once you receive the email, you need to renew your membership online.

You will need to email campusrecreation@georgetown.edu to request that your password be reset. Due to the high volume of emails we receive, please allow three business days for the reset. We will respond to your email when your password has been reset.

To request an exemption, please send an email to the Office of Institutional Diversity, Equity, and Affirmative Action (IDEAA) at ideaa@georgetown.edu or call IDEAA at 202.687.4798.

Requests for exemptions will be reviewed on an individualized basis; decisions about whether an exemption request will be approved may require more than seven business days..

Individuals requesting an exemption will not be allowed to access Campus Recreation facilities unless an exemption is granted. Exempted individuals will be required to comply with enhanced public health measures.

Notify Campus Recreation via email at campusrecreation@georgetown.edu. Campus Recreation will then notify Georgetown’s Public Health team. Georgetown’s Public Health team may reach out to you for the purpose of contact tracing.

All members, guests, and visitors driving to campus MUST park in the Southwest Quadrangle parking garage. From the garage, Yates Field House is a short walk up the hill between McDonough Gym and Cooper Field. Visit the Office of Transportation Management’s website for more details about parking on campus.

Students, faculty, and staff who are members must comply with University parking policies; Campus Recreation cannot distribute parking passes to these members.
