Mount Vernon Campus
If you love being close to everything the city has to offer, but also want a more traditional college campus experience, then Mount Vernon Campus will win your heart.
The campus is home to a growing number of innovative living and learning communities for students who want to combine a small-college experience with the resources and opportunities available at a major university. “The Vern,” as it’s affectionately known, provides open green spaces and access to athletic facilities including a gym, tennis courts, soccer/lacrosse and softball fields and even an outdoor pool.
The campus is home to other amenities including Eckles Library, a black box theater and classroom and laboratory spaces.
The tight-knit community atmosphere among the six residence halls also helps residents to forge bonds that last throughout their time at GW and beyond.
