Community Resources



Connecting GW students to the resources and services to help them succeed.

A great part of your time at GW will be spent outside the classroom, in one of GW’s 26 residential communities. You have choices when it comes to selecting your room costs, hall amenities, building locations, and roommates that fit your GW life.


On Call Support

Each residential neighborhood has a team of staff who serve on-call for that community. Your neighborhood’s on-call number is prominently displayed on the digital display in the lobby of your residence hall.


Move In & Out

We strive to make the move-in and move-out processes as easy and stress-free as possible, and are committed to the safety of our entire campus community.


 On Campus Services

Living at GW comes with a wide variety of resources and amenities available to all of our residential students. We do our best to provide resources that improve and support the student residential experience.




Student selecting food from a buffet


Whether you’re grabbing lunch on-the-go between campus and your internship, exploring a new cuisine with friends in one of our two new residence hall dining spaces, or perfecting a recipe in your residence hall kitchen, GW’s Dining Meal Plan enables you to use your Dining Dollars at a variety of food vendors, restaurants and grocery stores so that you can enjoy diverse dining options.


Where to Eat

In addition to the GW Dining locations, GW Dining has relationships with dining partners in D.C., including restaurant, quick service, fast-casual and grocery partners, at both on-and off-campus locations.


Healthy Eating

A nutritious diet and physical activity form the basis of good health. It is critical for your success as a GW student that you figure out how to adopt a healthy diet that will fuel your studies on campus and promote a healthy lifestyle once you graduate.


Meal Plans

At GW, our Dining Meal Plans are designed to fit your unique needs and provide a complementary experience while attending GW.

As a GW student, it’s important to know what GW expects of you and what you can expect from GW. The Code of Academic Integrity and the Code of Student Conduct provide some of the expectations for GW students’ behavior in class, outside of class, off-campus, and online.
