The George Washington University (GW) is located in Washington, D.C., with one campus in the heart of the city and another in a northwest residential neighborhood. Our location puts us blocks from the White House, the National Mall, and other D.C. institutions. GW students benefit from our location, with enriched academic, social, and professional experiences for students in every major.

Start Your Journey to GW

The college search process has changed as a result of COVID-19. We're adapting to those changes just as you are. We're here to help you navigate your college search process all the same.

Below, you'll find all of our offerings to help you learn more about the GW community, to engage with our staff and students, and to get answers to all of your burning questions. These resources are vital now, and we'll continue to offer them even after we re-open our campus to visitors. We've categorized them as if they were college courses, but of course, there are no pre-requisites - choose the option that works best for you!

Best of luck on your journey to GW - and know that our office is here to help you along the way!
