-Francis Scott Key

    Please refer to below website for info - only Ivory Tower will be available for summer housing. Possibly South Hall, but most GW Undergrads not previously living in Soth will be in ivory tower. You can apply now if you have all the necessary internship info as per website.

    CJ: Ivory Tower is where GW students who spend the summer in DC live. Other students who rent a room at GW because they're in DC for the summer doing an internship live in other dorms.
    Unfortunately, wesleyan, I can't really comment on the dorms you listed since my S never lived in any of them.

    Assumed wesleyan was a GW student - I stand corrected, thanks.

    Most of those halls are where sophomores live. They are basic housing with good locations and are in Foggy Bottom. All have small kitchenettes and private bathrooms but be guided that this is college dorm living so pack light and don't expect luxurious living.

    JBKO is right next to the metro so it's convenient. West End is also really nice and only a block further. Munson is nice too...nothing special. Don't do Fulbright. I haven't been to IH or FSK, but I here FSK isn't too bad. Actually, all of the dorms at GW are pretty nice so you'll survive well enough anywhere for 3 months.

    Thank you. JBKO ran out of rooms, darn! I'm still looking at West End, Munson, FSK, and Fulbright. Any more opinions would be very helpful.

    If you are going to be taking the metro to the Hill, then Munson, Fullbright and West End are the closest (of your remaining options) to the FB Metro Stop. If they start demolition on the Visitor Parking Garage this summer then Munson and Fullbright might get pretty noisy. You can look at floor plans on the Housing portion of the GW website.
    If you are going to be working closer to the White House than you might want to live in FSK and walk.
