How to request extended stay housing

  • Graduating seniors will automatically be granted extended stay housing. Students who are graduating early will need to complete the online request form via GW Housing e-Services.
  • Department requests: GW Housing will collect information from GW departments for students who are required to stay after May 16 for on campus commitments
  • Individual requests: The 2018 Spring Extended Stay Application for individual requests will be available from Monday, April 9 at 10am through Monday, April 30 at 5pm via GW Housing e-Services. Completing a request for Extended Stay Housing does not guarantee that you will be approved.  

Students not approved for Extended Stay Housing must move out no later than Wednesday, May 16, 2018 at noon.

Graduating seniors, CSE Resident Advisors/Resident Directors, Green Move-Out volunteers, student athletes, students working for a GW department, and on-campus GW Summer Residents whose reservation begins in May DO NOT need to complete the online form.  All other students who wish to extend their housing must complete the online form or they will not be approved for extended stay housing. Requests made after April 23, 2018 will be considered on a case-by-case basis, but are unlikely to be approved.

Extended Stay Housing cannot be extended beyond noon, Monday, May 21 unless a student is living in on-campus GW Summer Housing. Extended stay is not provided as a short term housing option for students who may have an off campus lease beginning after May 16, 2018. Any requests to stay in housing after Monday, May 16 will be denied.

Students who are approved for Extended Stay Housing are subject to all campus and residence hall policies.  Additionally, residents are not permitted to have any overnight guests who are not approved for Extended Stay Housing during this extended housing period. Any violation of policy can result in immediate loss of Extended Stay Housing, requiring a student to immediately vacate campus.
