Hensley Hall (Mount Vernon Campus)

2100 Foxhall Road, NW
Washington, DC 20007

Hensley Hall, a predominately first-year co-ed living option on the Mount Vernon campus, has a maximum occupancy of 39 students in a combination of single rooms with a community bathroom, double rooms with a community bathroom, double suites with shared bathrooms. This intimate community is one of GW's best opportunities to say you know everyone who lives in your hall.

Although studying in your room is always an option, Hensley residents are a few steps away from Eckles Library and its study rooms and three computer labs. In each Hensley room, students are provided with desks, desk chairs, dressers, and beds. Hensley features laundry facilities in the basement of the building. The television lounge also contains a billiards table. A community kitchen allows students to cook in their residence hall, or they can grab a bite across campus at the Ames Dining Hall.

1.5% of first-year students will live in Hensley Hall.

In the 2017 Summer, Hensley Hall will receive new life safety equipment, including installation of sprinklers along with all new furniture.
