St. Elizabeth's Campus
Tuesday, October 10
9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is consolidating its headquarters in the National Capital Region (NCR) at St. Elizabeths Campus in the Anacostia neighborhood of southeast Washington, DC. The DHS's current facilities are spread among more than 40 buildings in the Washington, DC area. In an effort to provide a more unified, secure campus that brings together its executive leadership and operational management, DHS's new headquarters will allow for more efficient incident management response and command-and-control operations. The GSA proposes to develop a secure facility for DHS at St. Elizabeths, a National Historic Landmark (NHL) and former Government-run hospital for the insane. St. Elizabeths is divided into two campuses, the West Campus and the East Campus. While DHS's headquarters will be housed on both, it will function as one unified campus.
