Bust of George Washington

As a portion of the Center for Student Engagement, GW Housing, in conjunction with Residential Engagement, Division of Operations, Facilities Services, GW Safety and Security, and GW Information Technology supports the academic experience of residential students by providing safe, scholarly-oriented communities.  GW Housing also manages all aspects of the university's three-year residency requirement and summer housing program. We strive to foster an inclusive residential environment where students have opportunities to grow and develop into leaders, value civility and respect, and thrive as members of the GW community.

Our knowledgeable staff members are available to guests and conference coordinators, so feel free to reach out to our office for assistance with your reservation or planning process.
