Summer Housing for GW Students

Summer Housing for GW Students

Each summer, several hundred academic-year GW students choose to stay on-campus to make the most of their time and educational experience in Washington, DC by electing to reserve summer housing through GW Housing. 


The benefits of booking your reservation as a GW Student:

  • Making a summer housing reservation as a GW Student provides automatic extended stay from your Spring assignment and early arrival to your Fall assignment (if applicable) for continuous on-campus housing.
  • Different than a visiting intern, GW Students are exempt from the D.C. Accommodation Tax of 14.95% on housing reservations
  • GW Student reservations benefit from a longer date range, transition day to transition day, and reduced administrative and housing rates.

Eligibility for GW Student Summer Housing

GW students are permitted to reside in on-campus housing if they are:

  • Engaged in an educationally-oriented activity like an internship
  • Registered for courses at GW - in possession of an active GWid
  • Engaged in academic research
  • Participating in a structured volunteer opportunity

Additionally, many GW students are hired as student employees for offices around the university.  Often, in this case, the hiring department is arranging housing accommodations on behalf of the GW student.
