Second- & Third-Year Student Application

Second- and third-year students are required to reside in on-campus housing in compliance with DC zoning restrictions and GW policy unless they have been approved for a Residency Exemption. Exemptions are rarely granted; however, students can request an exemption under specific conditions.

  • The Residency Exemption request form will be available via GW Housing e-Services on January 17, 2017 and must be submitted by March 6, 2017.
  • Students who are registered for classes for the Fall semester, do not apply for housing, and are not approved for a Residency Exemption will be administratively assigned to housingand will be responsible for all related housing and dining charges. 

The following buildings are available for  second- and third-year students for the 2017-2018 Academic year:

The following building is available for third-year students:

GW Housing encourages students to preference all available buildings and room types from their highest to lowest preference. Students should preference a minimum of 10-15 room types; upperclass students are not placed on the Mount Vernon Campus unless they preference a building on that campus as one of their top choices. Any room types on the Foggy Bottom that are not listed in your preferences will be considered your lowest prference. Not preferencing a buildling or room type does not mean that you will not be assigned there.

**Due to a lack of availability, single apartments and single units with private bathrooms will not be available as a room preference on the general housing application. The only single options will be Mitchell Hall single with common bathroom or West Hall single suites.**

  • Rising second & third-year students will complete the general iHousing application April 4-11, 2017. 
  • Students will be unable to apply if they have a hold on their student account.
  • Students who apply after April 11, 2017 will likely be placed on the waitlist.
