Visit & Events


Thank you for your continued interest in the George Washington University.  Safety for the GW Community (including visitors) has always been the top priority for our institution.   In light of the recent information regarding the COVID-19 situation, in an effort to promote social distancing, the university has decided to administer most operations remotely.    Therefore, all student events have been canceled until further notice (including the Graduate Campus Tour). Our team will still be available for inquiries during normal business hours via telephone (202-994-5984) and email ([email protected]). 

We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and for university updates and responses, please visit

Additionally, to obtain a sense of our campus remotely, we invite you to visit GW's Virtual Tour.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
