If you’re arriving at the local airports Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport or Baltimore Washington International airport, you have a variety of options to get to the campus. There are rental cars, mass transit, and taxis to transport you to CUA and downtown D.C.
Formally referred to as the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, it’s the church that CUA students walk by as they go to class. The Basilica pays tribute to Virgin Mary and has colorful and mosaic-tiled incarnations.
Whenever you want to have a break from the CUA student restaurant, you will find some great stops just across the campus. You can find whatever you’re craving for at the Potbelly’s Sandwich Shop and Busboys & Poets.
In case you’re planning to live outside the campus or you don’t want to have a meal plan, you can shop for all your groceries here.
Stop by the Barnes and Noble Bookstore on Monroe Street to get some of the Catholic University gear. You can also order and pick your textbooks in the bookstore. However, this isn’t just your ordinary bookstore; it also holds one of the three Starbucks on CUA.
