Tenley Campus

Capital Hall, Tenley Campus, American University

Tenley Campus is a satellite campus of American University located on Tenley Circle, in Northwest Washington, DC. It was formerly home to the School of Professional & Extended Studies, including the Washington Semester Program, as well as University Publications, the Media Relations department, and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. These offices and the bulidings that housed them were largely demolished in 2013 to make way for a new home for the Washington College of Law. In 2016 a slew of new academic buildings were completed and the Washington College of Law was formally relocated to Tenley Campus.

Purchased in 1987 by AU, Tenley Campus was acquired to alleviate space problems at the university's main campus. Formerly the Immaculata School, it was about half a mile from main campus on Tenley Circle, at the intersection of Wisconsin and Nebraska Avenues. This campus was popular with interns because of its close proximity to the Tenleytown-AU Metro station on the WMATA Red Line.
