About the Arlington HQ

In 2020, the University begins a $250 million transformation of its Arlington campus, with the development of the Arlington Innovation Headquarters, a 360,000 square foot mixed use building that will house IDIA research and innovation programs, as well as the graduate programs of the University’s School of Computing, Scalia Law School, Schar School of Policy and Government, Carter School of Peace and Conflict Resolution, and the School of Business.

Our campus transformation is inspired by a new urban geography of innovation that concentrates university research and development programs, corporate innovation labs, innovation-centric convening and community programs, high-growth-companies and related incubator and accelerator programs, diverse high-density residential options, and retail amenities — all in a compact urban setting that allows innovators to live, learn, work, and play in a dynamic and highly collaborative environment.
