Transportation & Parking

The Corcoran’s Downtown campus is located on the corner of Seventeenth Street and New York Avenue NW, across the street from the White House and Old Executive Office Building. We are just a few blocks from two convenient Metrorail stations: Farragut West on the Orange/Blue lines (take the Seventeenth Street exit), and Farragut North on the Red line (take the K Street exit). Once exiting either station, walk south down Seventeenth Street to reach the Corcoran.

Metered street parking is also available in the area from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily. Parking is free after 10 p.m. and on Sundays and holidays.

Students can reach the Corcoran’s Georgetown campus by Metrobus Routes 31, 32 and 36; the DC Circulator, which stops at the intersection of Wisconsin Avenue and Thirty-fourth Street; and Metrobus Routes D1 and D2, which stop at Thirty-fifth and S Streets, NW.
