Housing at GW

gw ehousingThe First-Year Housing application will be available through May 13th at 5 PM Eastern time. Per DC Zoning law and GW policy, all first-, second-, and third-year students at GW are required to live in on-campus housing. Before completing an application, you must create your Net ID. It takes 24-48 hours for the application to become available after creating a Net ID. You will receive an email from the GW Housing office when the application is available to you.

Once you have completed the application, it can be edited as many times as you would like until the application is closed. First-year students are able to make roommate requests. Roommate requests are granted when space is available, the requests are mutual, and all applicants are eligible for the halls/programs being requested. GW Housing will do its best to accommodate any roommate requests; however, we cannot guarantee that we will always be able to do so.

Housing assignments are made using a random selection process, meaning that the housing system will randomly select an application and then look at the preferences listed. If your first preference is available at the time your housing application is pulled, you will be assigned to that type of space. If it is not available, the system will look at your next preference to see if that is available. This process continues until you are assigned. Choosing not to select a certain building or room type does not prevent you from being assigned there. The system will consider all unselected preferences as your last choice and, if none of the room types you preferenced are available, you will be placed in an available space. If you have requested roommates, the system will assign you together as long as the request is mutual and there are enough spaces.

Housing assignments will be emailed to your GW email address on June 2nd after 10am Eastern time. You will also receive contact information for your roommates. You should reach out to them via email or phone to start getting to know them. If you prefer a different housing assignment, you will be able to use the online Room Swap system. Room Swap is designed to give students the chance to swap with another student into a different room. We expect that housing will be filled to capacity at the time assignments are released, so it is unlikely that GW Housing staff will be able to move you into a vacant room.

All housing applications must be submitted online via GW Housing e-Services. If you experience technical difficulties with the application or have questions about first-year housing, you can check out the first-year housing FAQs online or contact the GW Housing office at 202-994-2552 or gwhouse@gwu.edu. You can also follow us on Twitter or Facebook for housing updates.

This message is for the Class of 2020.

  1. I’ve logged into my NetID and gotten to the housing page, but it says I can’t access the application until I have registered for classes. Is this right?
