Virtual Student Engagement

Now more than ever, maintaining our connection to each other is so important. Social distancing asks us to be physically apart, but there are still many ways to stay engaged with the GW community.

We’ll help you stay connected throughout the fall semester. We have planned a variety of virtual events to help our students connect with each other and to build community at GW, no matter where you are in the world. 

Take a look at what's happening and let us know if you have an activity or idea to be featured.

We look forward to connecting with you from wherever you are as we #RaiseHigh from afar!

Campus Living and Residential Education

Access to GW’s campuses this Spring is limited to only students, faculty and staff who have been granted special permission to enter university buildings.

Those granted access include students approved to live in the residence halls, faculty who applied to teach or conduct research on campus this fall, and staff who need access to campus to perform essential functions of their job. The Campus Living and Residential Education (CLRE) team stands ready to assist our residential students and hosts a variety of events for residential students.

Virtual services are still available to those not on campus.
