Pre-College Arrival Details
Check In, Orientation and Welcome Dinner
All activities listed below are on the Mount Vernon Campus (2100 Foxhall Rd, NW, Washington, D.C. 20007).
If you're driving, park in the garage and follow the signs to GW Pre-College. The garage is located adjacent to the West Hall building.
If you're taking a ride share or taxi, bring up the address in Google maps to ensure you get dropped off at West Hall. Our campus has lots of buildings and we don't want you carrying your luggage too far.
First Day of Class
All students need to check their class folder (picked up at student check in) for where your specific class is located. Please note, some classes are on Foggy Bottom, and others are on Mount Vernon Campus (particularly important for commuter students).
On the first day, we suggest your student be overly prepared and bring: laptop/tablet and/or smartphone, notebook, pen/pencil and class folder. Your professor will then clarify what is necessary to bring everyday.
July 4th Holiday
There will be no class held on July 4. Residential activities will continue.
