General Access Building Hours

Academic & Administrative Building Hours

Beginning March 14 and March 16 access to buildings will become restricted during the social distancing period.

Please review the notice that was emailed on March 13 for updated information on building access.  

Please ensure that you carry your GWorld card, as you will need it to access buildings on GW’s campuses. Once this period is over we anticipate our building hours to return to what can be viewed below. 


These hours represent general building access hours.  Authorized/designated users will have additional access hours that will vary by building and program. For example, lab spaces in Science & Engineering Hall, studio access at The Corcoran Building and law student access to Law School buildings will be available to authorized students as designated by the appropriate program/department. The hours below were last updated in August 2019 -- please email [email protected] if you have any questions or notice any changes in hours from what is shown below.
