On Campus Housing

We are pleased to be able to offer Corcoran full time undergraduate students the opportunity to live in The George Washington University Housing for the 2014-2015 academic year. Although the agreement between GW and the Corcoran has not been finalized, student housing will be made available as an agreement between GW and individual Corcoran students. Should GW and Corcoran not be able to reach an agreement, GW will continue to provide housing for the 2014-2015 academic year to those Corcoran students who request information by the date identified below. 


Please note that this is the only housing option offered through the Corcoran. After the Spring 2014 semester, the Corcoran will no longer have a relationship with 2424 Pennsylvania House. Students are not committed to housing until they are assigned a space and make a deposit. Corcoran students are not required to purchase the university meal plan. Information about this is available on the GW website.


GW generally does not provide housing for graduate students. Graduate students are welcome to apply for housing through the Columbia Plaza Housing Program. In this program, the university serves as a referral agent, allowing students to secure competitively priced housing in a convenient location. 


For incoming first year undergraduate students and rising sophomores, GW has reserved space for approximately 40 students. GW's Mitchell Hall is home to approximately 350 undergraduate students in single rooms. Located on the southeast corner of campus at 514 19th Street, Mitchell Hall is only two blocks from the Corcoran College of Art and Design's Downtown campus. All rooms have vanities, microwaves, fridges, and medicine cabinets. Two large bathroom facilities are located on each floor; and all floors but the first floor has kitchen facilities. Mitchell Hall is priced at $10,830 for the 2014-2015 academic year.


For rising juniors and seniors, requests for housing will be honored on an “as available” basis throughout the GW housing inventory. Specific information on the GW residential system, including building locations, amenities, and pricing, can be found here. Should housing not be available at the time of your application, you can choose to be placed on a waiting list and assigned as space becomes available throughout the rest of the spring and summer. If interested in applying for housing or for additional information about GW Housing, please submit an application by May 15, 2014.  Applications can be found below. Payment will be required for each semester in advance (August 1, 2014 and December 15, 2015) and a $500.00 non-refundable deposit will be due by June 27, 2014 for you to hold a room for fall.
