#FindGWGeorge

Where’s George? Google’s Street View team recently toured GW, mapping non-street, green spaces at the university’s Foggy Bottom and Mount Vernon campuses, with George acting as tour guide along the way.

In addition to his tour-guide duties, George was able to sneak into the Street View scenes! So if you're new to the university — or just haven't been on campus in a while — use Google Maps to take your own tour of Foggy Bottom's recreational areas and see if you can spot GW's mascot having some fun in seven different locations.

Virtual Tour

Our new Virtual Tour allows you to navigate the university’s campuses and Washington, D.C., while learning more about the university's facilities and history.

The Virtual Tour website offers multiple ways to interact with three separate maps: the Foggy Bottom Campus, the Mount Vernon Campus and downtown D.C. A map of the Virginia Science and Technology Campus is coming soon.

The Foggy Bottom and Mount Vernon maps show renderings of every building on campus. Explore building descriptions, photographs, a list of related links, a feed of events and real-time Twitter updates. Some buildings, such as Gelman Library and the Marvin Center, also feature videos created exclusively for the virtual tour.

Users can also navigate on the maps through a list of buildings or tour topics, such as “Academics and Research,” “Student Life” and “Community Service.” The Virtual Tour has “layers” that highlight different spots on campus. The "sustainability" layer shows where bike racks, water bottle fillers and CarShare spots are located, and the "residential" layer makes it easy to see where residence halls are in relation to other campus buildings. An optional “GW Highlights” function sends users through a guided tour of 10 hot spots on campus, with a bonus stop that shows places to visit off campus.

Prepare for your visit by exploring our campuses online now!
