In October 1984, a proposal to build the residence was formally presented to the Alumni Board of Governors and unanimously approved. The project was enthusiastically backed by GUAA president Joseph Riggs and Georgetown University President Timothy S. Healy, S.J.

Georgetown University provided the GUAA with a long-term lease on a large chunk of residential property owned by the university just outside the Main Gates. The funds to complete the project were raised by the association.

Reed Alumni Residence was constructed in 1986 under the direction of John C. Courtin (Cā€™70, Lā€™78), the GUAA executive director from 1984 to 1990. The design matches the early major Federal Houses found in the Georgetown community.

Over the last three decades, six executive directors and their families have lived at Reed Residence. The space has hosted thousands of events for the university and its alumni.
