Introducing: Your Setting

Nestled just north of Capitol Hill sits Catholic University. Our campus is a world within a world. It is located in a powerful and historic city, but is also home to 176 acres of lush green landscapes and cherry blossom trees.

We know many of you are currently unable to travel to our beautiful campus for a visit. As you continue your college search, we want to make sure you are able to learn more about Catholic University while staying close to home. On this page, you can sign up for one of our virtual information sessions, take a virtual tour, meet your admission counselor, and get a better sense of what our campus is really like.
