Two Great Campuses. One Unforgettable Experience. 

The Foggy Bottom Campus

During the Summer season, our Foggy Bottom campus hosts all of our Individual Guests, Long-Stay Groups, and GW Short-Stay Groups. Located in the midst of Washington D.C., this campus contains more than 100 university buildings, including 26 residence halls, that span over 42 acres. This campus includes reservable classrooms, meeting rooms, outdoor spaces, and many more services to support your conference or event.

Only blocks away from the White House, National Mall, State Department, and Kennedy Center, our location is ideal for exploring, enjoying, and immersing yourself in all of the history and pageantry that is the D.C. summer experience. The Foggy Bottom Metro station is conveniently located on campus and provides easy access across the city via the Orange, Blue, and Silver Lines.  Whether hanging out in Kogan Plaza or studying in the shadow of the Washington Monument, you will find plenty of reasons to consider D.C. and GW your home away from home.

The Mount Vernon Campus

The Mount Vernon Campus is host to GW students and select GW short-stay summer groups, and provides a traditional campus experience, while still offering access to everything the Nation’s Capital has to offer. The campus is spread over 25 acres in the wooded Foxhall neighborhood in Northwest Washington, D.C. It  includes six residence halls, over 50,000 square feet of meeting and event space, a traditional dining hall, and reservable outdoor athletic facilities.

The Mount Vernon Campus is surrounded by embassies, diplomatic residences, and residential homes, with the Kreeger Museum of Art located just down the street. A short 10 to 15 minute shuttle ride through the historic Georgetown and Foxhall neighborhoods connects Foggy Bottom and the Mount Vernon Campus to create one seamless GW experience.
