Summer Housing for GW Undergraduates

Current GW academic-year undergraduate students can select from the following living options during the summer months.  GW students are clustered together in these locations to facilitate the development of community during your summer on campus.


2017 Housing Options

Our different summer housing options for GW undergraduates vary in the level of amenities each location offers:

  • Traditional Rooms, Double Bedroom with Adjoined Bath in Lafayette Hall (available Summer I only, Summer II only, or for an Entire Summer stay)
  • Shared Apartment, Double Bedroom with Kitchens in Shenkman Hall (available Summer I only, Summer II only, or for an Entire Summer stay)
  • Private Bedroom, with Kitchens in South Hall (available for an Entire Summer stay only)

If your Spring 2017 or Fall 2017 housing assignment is in any of these buildings, and you choose the same building and room type for your summer assignment, GW Summer & Conference Housing will strive to manually assign you to that space.  This is in an effort to prevent you from having to move multiple times during the transition between Spring, Summer, and Fall Semesters.
