Affinity Housing presents the opportunity for students at the George Washington University to define and create their own living community around their particular needs and interests. This is a great opportunity for registered student organizations, athletic groups, and academic groups to live together, but Affinity groups are not required to be tied to organization or department.
All members of an affinity group will play a role in leading and crafting the shared experiences of their community. Affinity communities have the opportunity to receive programmatic support to build connections among themselves and the larger residential community, as well as the intentional support from residential staff.
All affinities are located within the District House residence hall on the north and south ends of the building.
If you're a current Affinity resident who questions about affinity living, please contact your Community Coordinators for District House.

The affinity housing groups in previous years have included:
- Business Pros
- Casa Blanca
- Muslim Women
- Women of Color
"The Affinity Housing at District House has been a positive experience because it has allowed me to build a community with other Latinx on campus. It is not only our dorm, it is our home; without our affinity, that would have never been possible. We have built a family."

If one of these current affinities does not pique your interest, you will have the opportunity to submit materials, including a purpose statement and confirmed roster, for review and consideration to be a new affinity group. New affinity groups will be considered and approved based on availability.
