Campus Living and Residential Education

In August 2021, we will be conducting a phased move-in over several weeks to help reduce crowds in the lobbies and elevators. 

In early June, rising sophomores, juniors and seniors who will be living on-campus this fall will be invited to self-select their move-in date and four-hour move-in time block, based on their class year. First-year students will select from their date block later in the month.

How do you Raise UP?


Raise Up GW is our initiative dedicated to helping students engage in a comprehensive well-being experience. We empower our students to actively engage in well-being activities that are supportive of holistic lifestyles, no matter where they are.

Through this initiative, students will gain an understanding of GW resources and will learn how to help others in need.

Students walk together on campus.


At GW, we aim to create a community that cares for one another. From the moment students arrive on campus, they begin to find their place at the university. The college experience can often be challenging, and asking for help can be difficult. The CARE Team reaches out to offer support so that students can be as successful as possible through graduation.
