Wellbeing

Provide clinical services, create health promotion programs, and offer opportunities geared toward mental, physical, and emotional health to holistically support and retain our student body.

George Washington University (GW) is a healthy campus and a number of areas within the Division of Student Affairs (DSA) focus on student wellness.

The Colonial Health Center provides high quality, affordable care and resources to students. It offers a range of confidential health services to support medical and mental health needs, as well as promotion and prevention services to guide students in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. To increase accessibility and meet the needs of the student community, in January 2015 Health Promotion and Prevention Services, Medical Services, and Mental Health Services were relocated with the GW Parenting Initiative to the beautiful new Colonial Health Center, located on the ground floor of the Marvin Center on the Foggy Bottom Campus. The space is centrally located and more than doubled the square footage of the previous office space.

The Office of Student Rights & Responsibilities and the Office of Civility & Community Standards manage outreach, prevention, and education programs designed to facilitate respect, civility, and community responsibility. Peer educators also provide support and furnish students with leadership opportunities.

GW cares about our students, and provides a comprehensive 24/7/365 emergency response system and professional staff members in residence halls who are part of the crisis response duty team. Our after hours call center connects students to mental and physical health professionals quickly, day or night.

Your gift can support GW’s wellness, education, and prevention wellness initiatives.
