You won't just get an education in D.C., but from D.C. Our roots run deep and our networks stretch wide, giving you
opportunities you won't find anywhere else.
Foggy Bottom Campus
Foggy Bottom Campus takes GW beyond the front row and immerses our community in the buzz of D.C. life.
This historic campus, nestled between the White House, the Kennedy Center and a number of federal and international agencies, gives you unparalleled opportunities and turns the city into your classroom.
Whether you're looking to learn from experts in our classrooms, experience the arts in our studios and museums, make discoveries in our research facilities, relax with friends in our residence halls and green spaces or explore the city, Foggy Bottom has something for you.
“Being in the city of DC is incredible! Whether I’m jogging past the cherry blossoms or exploring the Smithsonians, there’s always something new to explore.“
Mount Vernon Campus
Just a few miles from the bustle of downtown, Mount Vernon Campus, affectionately known as "The Vern," provides a traditional college campus atmosphere. The Vern is home to residence halls, academic buildings, athletic facilities, dining options, a library and even an outdoor challenge course, all surrounded by rolling green hills.
Access between The Vern and Foggy Bottom is easy, with a shuttle service running around the clock. About a third of the freshman class lives on this campus and other students visit to watch or play sports, attend classes, catch up with friends and enjoy seasonal events.
Virginia Science & Technology Campus
The Virginia Science and Technology Campus in Ashburn, VA, serves as GW’s hub for discovery through dynamic research and academic programs.
The campus is home to 17 research labs, centers and institutes advancing knowledge in a wide range of interdisciplinary areas. Innovative academic offerings include the School of Nursing, along with a number of graduate and certificate programs.
Online & Virginia Academic Centers
You don’t have to be in D.C. to pursue a GW education. We offer a number of study options to fit your schedule, lifestyle and location.
Beyond the main campuses, GW has academic centers in Alexandria and Arlington, VA, that provide graduate education opportunities to working professionals near their homes and workplaces.
If you’re farther away, or need to customize a program to your schedule, we offer a wide selection of online programs that can be completed in D.C. or around the world.
GW is a vibrant part of the D.C. community and we welcome visitors to many of our events held on campus. Whether you've come for a performance at Lisner Auditorium, a GW basketball game, an exhibit at the George Washington University Museum and The Textile Museum or a conference at Jack Morton Auditorium, we hope you enjoy your time at GW and learn something new while you're here.
