COVID-19: Summer Housing

Summer 2021 Update

As summer is approaching, we are reaching out to provide an update as we continue to assess hosting external groups and individuals on our campus this summer as part of our GW Summer & Conference Housing Program.
While the rollout of vaccines to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is promising, our public health and safety experts have informed us that the vaccination roll-out will likely continue into the summer. We also remain committed to reviewing current campus and local COVID-19 conditions, vaccination progress across D.C. and the United States, and current operating status of our university.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the George Washington University will not able to host non-GW groups and individuals for housing in Summer 2021. Should you plan to be in the Washington, D.C. region this summer, we encourage you to explore alternative housing arrangements. Washington Intern Student Housing (WISH) is currently offering long-stay summer housing.
We know that this update may be disappointing if you plan to have Washington, D.C. components as part of your 2021 summer. The decisions we make are with the best of intentions for the health, safety, and well-being of both you and our community while balancing multiple elements like academics, housing, and university operations.
As always, we are happy to answer any questions you have, so do not hesitate to reach out to [email protected].
