Engage in Your Physical Well-being

GW’s Lerner Health and Wellness Center is temporarily closed until mid-fall as we perform extensive HVAC work throughout the entire building to replace outdated and non-functioning units. We will provide an update to the university community when we have a firm reopening date.  

The Lerner team continues to provide physical wellbeing opportunities in other locations both on- and off-campus. Group fitness classes will be offered at District House and alternative workout spaces are open for students at both Mount Vernon and Foggy Bottom locations. Additionally, local gyms in Foggy Bottom are offering student discounts to GW students.
