Fall 2021: Campus Living and Residential Education Guest Policy

  • No guests allowed except for other GW residential students between 7 am - 11 pm. 
  • No overnight guests allowed. All guests in your room must depart by 11 pm.
  • Guests and hosts must always wear masks/face coverings.

Guests are any person not assigned to live in a particular residential space. This includes other GW students if they are not assigned to your residential room/suite.

For fall 2021 semester, students living in GW’s residence halls have all-tap access to all residence halls--with exception of the fraternity and sorority townhouses, Williams and Cisernos House--to visit peers and classmates. Residents are allowed to have other GW residential students as guests in their hall and/or room from 7 am - 11 pm. No overnight guests are allowed, even if it is a fellow GW residential student.

With a residential student only guest policy this means no outside guests are allowed to visit the residence halls until further notice. This includes family or friends from outside of GW as well as GW students who live off-campus. The exception to this policy is during a student’s 4-hour move-in timeslot.

We will re-evaluate the guest policy during the semester based on advice from the Medical Advisory Team who are monitoring the spread of the virus and other conditions and if we adjust the guest policy, we will communicate that to residents. With your cooperation, we hope to demonstrate that changes to the guest policy can still maintain safety and limit the spread of COVID.
