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.

"I chose to come to GW because I wanted to study political science in a place where all the action is! My educational experience at GW has been absolutely incredible. The professors I get to work with have years of experience in their fields that translates to teaching us how to apply what we are learning to the real world. I have had the honor to study with past DNC employees, members of the White House Correspondent Organization, and diplomats who have gone out of their way to make us love the content we are learning. The internships and jobs I have gotten in DC have been because of the extraordinary network professors and students have established at GW! I am so grateful for my GW experience!”
