Graduate Student Housing Options
Graduate students have a number of different options for on- and off-campus housing. Graduate students are encouraged to visit Off Campus Student Affairs within the Center for Student Engagement to learn more about off-campus housing options.
The Columbia Plaza Housing Program is an attractive housing option for Law, Medical, and graduate students at the George Washington University. The university serves as a referral agent for participants in the Columbia Plaza Housing Program, allowing students to secure competitively priced housing in a convenient location. GW students seeking off-campus housing through this program do not have to demonstrate the minimum income requirements that are necessary from non-GW students when applying to live in the building. The Columbia Plaza Housing Program is not available to undergraduate students.
Please visit the Columbia Plaza Apartments for more information pertaining to floor plans, rates, amenities, etc. Students interested in leasing with Columbia Plaza should contact our office no earlier than 30-35 days prior to their desired move-in date as current tenants are required to provide a 30-day vacate notice.
