Reservation Process

  1. Apply online through our Summer Housing Application Portal and select the Fraternity & Sorority Housing option. You may note the appropriate chapter house after selecting the GW-operated Fraternity & Sorority Housing option.
  2. After signing up, the House Manager will be notified of your application and will be required to approve/confirm your reservation made to GW Summer Housing.  If the chapter does not approve your housing reservation, we will arrange alternate housing in one of our residence halls based on your initial housing request (alternate housing may require an additional cost).

Greek Housing Buildings

Strong Hall is the only building designated solely for females. It offers both Greek housing and single-bedroom options for guests.  Two of GW’s affiliated sororities, Pi Beta Phi and Chi Omega, occupy space in Strong Hall.  Each chapter has a private community room, kitchen, and dining room areas that are accessible only to guests who request Strong Hall as a Greek Housing option.  Chi Omega women also have access to both of Strong Hall’s roof decks.
