DC Planning Office Seeks To Restrict Georgetown Enrollment

Washington DC's office of planning will begin restricting Georgetown's enrollment if the university does not manage to provide housing for 100% of its undergraduates by 2016.

None of the other DC area schools are held to such strict standards and the plan would seem to deny the city many of the long term, highly skilled residents that would stay after graduation.

Sally Kram of the Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area released a statement in support of Georgetown: "Given that students are one of the District's most assured conduits for new residents - a lifeline for any urban community - it seems particularly odd that the District's Office of Planning seems committed to restricting student growth, particularly graduate and continuing education students."
