Transfer Student Housing Application

GW's Transfer Housing Application for the 2016-2017 academic year will be available beginning June 6, 2017 after 10am Eastern time.

  • All first-, second-, and third-year students are required to reside on campus unless they have been approved for a Residency Exemption.
  • Students will apply for housing by visiting GW Housing e-Services. This application asks you to answer questions about your lifestyle preferences (bedtime, study hours, cleanliness, etc.), and indicate any roommate preferences.
  • Students are not able to make building preferences.
  • Students who have a need for a housing accommodation should review the Disability Support Services Housing Accommodation Policy and register with DSS prior to applying for housing.

Transfer students are able to make roommate requests and are also able to participate in Gender Neutral Housing, should they wish to do so. Roommate requests are granted when space is available and the requests are mutual. GW Housing will do its best to accommodate any roommate requests; however, we cannot guarantee that we will always be able to do so.

Assignments are made on a rolling basis based on interests, lifestyle preferences, and availability. Once they have been notified of an assignment, students will be able to log onto GW Housing e-Services to view housing assignment and roommate(s) information. Assignments typically begin to be emailed to students by early July and continue on a rolling basis.
