Named for GW alumna Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis, JBKO Hall has a convenient, central location across the street from the Foggy Bottom/GWU Metro station and the GW Hospital. JBKO is very close to the K Street corridor, offering many business opportunities to GW students. It’s also down the block from Whole Foods grocery and has restaurants across the street.  With Munson and Fulbright located on the same block and the Health and Wellness Center and Funger Hall only a few minutes away, the location is only one of the many qualities that make JBKO a great place to live.
