Undergraduate Residence Halls by Year
GW's residential house system converts traditional residential halls into theme-based houses that focus on providing academic readiness and character development opportunities. This unique living program is tailored to the individual interests of each of our many, diverse students.
Scholars Village Townhouses
Scholars' Village Townhouses, groupings of townhouse dwellings with interesting architectural details, are located at key street intersections of the campus. This unique housing concept gives the upperclassmen who live in them an authentic, residential neighborhood living experience.
Each townhouse accommodates four to nine residents. Generally, each townhouse offers a full kitchen, one or two full bathrooms, a private backyard, and a living room with cable TV.
Stepping from of any of these choice Foggy Bottom brownstones, you are in the midst of campus landmarks, recreational facilities and academic buildings. Your townhouse roommates are among the most intellectually curious and gifted GW students.
No two Scholars' Village townhouses are the same. Most include two residential levels, plus a common first floor and basement. The amenities also vary from townhouse to townhouse. For detailed information about each townhouse, contact GW Housing.
A number of Greek organizations maintain chapter houses with living arrangements for members on the GW campus. From 8-30 students live in each house.

International House and Strong Hall
