Campus Overview – Location

Georgetown College is a small, private, liberal arts college in the heart of central Kentucky. Located just off Main Street in historic downtown Georgetown, the campus is within a 20-minute drive of Lexington and only an hour’s drive from Louisville and Cincinnati.

Whether grabbing lunch in the Caf, Grille or Mulberry Café, studying in the beautiful Learning Resource Center or working out at the Fitness Center, Georgetown Tigers enjoy a small-town, small-campus vibe. As a Tiger, there’s no need to fear getting lost in the shuffle; with an undergraduate enrollment of only 1,300 students, it’s easy to get to know students, staff and faculty and form friendships that will last a lifetime. What’s more, the small campus means you’ll always be able to find a parking spot, and your next class is never more than a few minute’s walk away.
