Foggy Bottom Campus takes GW beyond the front row and immerses our community into the thrum of life in D.C.

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.

GW is four blocks from the White House

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.
