First-Year Residence Halls

First-year students have many different options when it comes to living on campus during their first year at GW. Although all of our first-year residence halls vary in room type, and amenities each residence hall is co-ed by room, each has wireless internet available throughout the building, and all students have access to Xfinity on Campus

Each of our first-year residence halls is managed by at least one full-time professional Community Coordinator.
