Marymount’s location – just six miles or a short Metro ride from D.C. – offers a wealth of opportunities for education, entertainment and fun. Marymount students live and learn in one of the world’s most exciting and influential cities and have many opportunities for leadership and service within a diverse and welcoming academic community.

MU students have the advantage of living and studying right next door to one of the world’s great cities – Washington, D.C. They get to see politics in action and history in the making. They enjoy world-class arts, culture, and entertainment. Additionally, they gain valuable experience and professional connections with some of the most famous and exciting organizations in the world.
Imagine a class assignment that takes you on a scavenger hunt in Washington, D.C., to find the Hope Diamond in one of the Smithsonian museums… or a sunny Sunday with friends, playing Frisbee on the National Mall in the shadow of the Washington Monument. Picture an internship for academic credit on Capitol Hill … or an evening watching a world-class performance at The Kennedy Center, followed by pizza in historic Georgetown.
Consider the interesting internship and job possibilities that can give you an edge as you launch your career, and you’ll realize Marymount and D.C. are an unbeatable combination! MU offers the best of two worlds – a leafy campus in a peaceful suburb plus all the excitement and resources of the nation’s capital.
