Visiting CUA

The Catholic University of America invites you and your family to visit our campus, located in the heart of Washington, D.C. While on campus, you can meet admissions staff and current students, while learning about the many opportunities CUA offers.

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.

"Choosing CUA was probably one of the best decisions I've ever made. Nowhere else are you going to find such a beautiful campus in the middle of a city, or professors who know you by name and personally want you to do well, or even the amazing opportunities DC has to offer! CUA is such a great school, with great people and I love it so much. "
