GW Summer Housing Transition Information

Students who have a summer housing reservation for Summer 2021 are automatically granted extended stay and will remain in their Spring Assignment until the designated transition period (May 19-21), at which point they will transition into their Summer Assignment. All moves from spring to summer housing occur during the day and overnight moves are not permitted, please plan accordingly. GW Campus Living will be in touch with all summer residents in mid April with more information about transitioning to their summer assignment.
