Short-Stay Groups Shared Units

Shared Units are on both the Mount Vernon and Foggy Bottom Campuses and spread across various residence halls, large and small. Most units feature bathroom facilities en-suite, or a shared bathroom with an adjoined suite.  This is the most popular and most cost effective option for short-term stays at GW.

  • Mount Vernon Campus, most are 2-person units
  • Foggy Bottom Campus, most are 4-6 person units* 
  • En-suite or adjoined bath across all units
  • Fridge and microwave in every unit

*On the Foggy Bottom Campus, conference programs cannot request that all of their participants are housed in 2 or 3-person units due to limited availability. Groups should expect that participants will be in 4-6 person units.

As our single largest residence hall, Thurston Hall can accommodate just over 1,000 guests and is an excellent choice for large short-term stay groups who wish to explore all the city has to offer. The most common room size in Thurston Hall is a 4-person shared occupancy unit with a limited number of single or double rooms for adult chaperones and staff members.

Thurston Hall also offers large community space in its piano and TV lounges and has a large common space on the lower level. This space is not able to be reserved for exclusive use by groups; rather we encourage groups and participants assigned to this building to enjoy it communally.  

Thurston Hall is located 3 blocks from the White House and is a 9 minute walk to the National Mall, 15 minutes to the Washington Monument, and 18 minutes to the Lincoln Memorial.
