Senior Ball

The week preceding graduation is Senior Week, planned by the Senior Class Committee and filled with events and occasions for your student to celebrate, reflect upon, and savor their Georgetown experience.  The culmination of Senior Week is the Senior Ball, a once-in-a-lifetime gala event for your student. Due to the pandemic, the planning timeline has been delayed. Senior Class Committee will notifiy students with Senior Ball details, including ticket ordering information, as soon as information about the gala is available. Thank you so much for your patience and we look forward to seeing you light up the dance floor at Senior Ball in May!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • When and where is Senior Ball?
    • The Senior Ball is on Friday, May 20th, and runs from 9pm to 1am. It is located at the Washington Hilton on 1919 Connecticut Ave, NW.
  • Where will the Senior Ball be held?
    • We are thrilled to announce that Senior Ball will be returning to its location at the Washington Hilton, a site that has featured prestigious events such as the White House Correspondents’ Dinner and the National Prayer Breakfast hosted by the United States Congress. 
  • Why is the Senior Ball being held at the Washington Hilton and not Union Station?
    • Due to updated safety and evacuation protocols at Union Station, the guest capacity of the venue was significantly reduced. Under the new guest limits, each graduate would only be able to bring one guest, which wasn’t the spirit of the event we know the Senior Class is hoping for. We are delighted to host Senior Ball in a space that allows the entire Senior Class to gather and celebrate their accomplishments.  It is our priority that each and every senior can partake in this memorable, penultimate tradition and the Washington Hilton is a unique venue that best serves this purpose. 
  • How much will tickets cost for Senior Ball?
    • Tickets will be $50 for students and $125 for guests. The Class of 2022 Senior Ball will also feature the lowest student prices for the event in the last few decades, which we hope will make the event more accessible to a larger population of seniors. We understand that the ticket price may still be a barrier to attendance, and will be reaching out to eligible seniors with further information about discounted tickets in the near future. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact scc@georgetown.edu or seniorball@georgetown.edu.
  • What if I don’t have two guests? 
    • Only purchase the number of tickets that you need.  Do not purchase extra tickets if you are not planning to bring a guest. 
  • One of my guests can no longer attend.  Can I resell my ticket to my friend?
    • No, please do not resell your unused ticket.  Unused tickets can and should be returned to the Senior Class Committee to be resold through the waiting list of seniors who are seeking an additional ticket.  Any effort to resell a ticket for more than the face value of the guest ticket ($125) will be considered “scalping,” a misuse of university resources, and will be referred to the Dean of Students Office.
  • What is included with your Senior Ball ticket purchase?
    • Senior Ball ticket provides the holder with general event attendance, 3 drink tickets, hors-d’oeuvres, musical entertainment, and more!
  • What do I do if I have payment issues with Campus Groups?
    • We will use the following information to contact the CampusGroups help desk on your behalf, so that the issue may be resolved. Please note that American Express Cards often take a few days for the payment to process and that payments should be made on a laptop or desktop (not a mobile device). Please contact scc@georgetown.edu with the following information;
      1. The number of tickets you are attempting to purchase.
