Managing the Number of Students to Meet Health & Safety Needs
Under our spring housing scenario, the following measures are being implemented to reduce the on-campus occupancy of residential students for the health and safety of our students:
- Each student will be provided their own bedroom, i.e., no roommates within a bedroom.
- Each student will share a bathroom with at most one other student.
- Two students will share an apartment style unit except in South Hall where four students, each in a separate bedroom, will share an apartment unit.
- Mitchell Hall, our only hall with traditional style rooms and a shared bathroom at the end of the hall, will be closed.Other halls will be closed as well, as their room style does not meet our health and safety requirements for occupancy during this pandemic.
- Students will not be assigned to live in the housing offered on the Mount Vernon Campus.
- GW-owned on-campus fraternity and sorority housing, including small townhouses and Greek row, will be closed. If a fraternity or sorority owns their own townhouse, either on-campus or off-campus, it is the decision of the chapter’s national headquarters whether to allow its members to reside in the non-owned GW property.
These residence halls will be available to live in:
1959 E Street, FSK, District House, Lafayette, One Washington Circle, Potomac, South Hall, The Aston and Shenkman Hall.
Housing Rates and Reductions:
All residents who are approved to live on-campus this spring who have a kitchen in their unit will have the same spring housing rate of $6,000. Students who are assigned a unit without a kitchen (Lafayette and Potomac House) will have a rate of $5,700. The rate is for the spring term housing provided from January 23 - May 12.
The cost of a student’s meal plan will depend on if a student is assigned with a kitchen or without a kitchen. A meal plan “with kitchen” is $1,570 and “without kitchen” is $2,445.50 for spring 2021.
Housing options and availability for summer 2021:
No decisions have been made yet about how many students we will be able to accommodate safely on campus during the summer. More information about summer housing will be provided during the spring semester.
