WE HAVE MOVED
The Office of Undergraduate Admissions has moved to Father O’Connell Hall. There is limited parking available behind McMahon Hall and ample parking available in the visitor lot of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception located adjacent to our campus. This parking lot is open daily from 7am until 7pm and can be accessed via Harewood Road on the west side of the Basilica. Its entrance is marked by a red X on the map, click here to view. Once you have parked, walk east on Michigan Avenue until you reach Father O’Connell Hall, which is marked by a yellow star.
The Catholic University of America will close at noon on Fridays beginning Friday, May 29th and ending on Friday, August 14th. As a result, the Office of Admissions will not offer afternoon tours on Fridays during the summer.
