Community Benefits

We are excited to offer our GW neighbors who live around the Foggy Bottom and Mount Vernon Campuses access to a variety of world class programs, events and culture at George Washington University.

The Friends of GW GWorld Community Card Program will serve as neighbors’ identification and access to some of the GW campus and community benefits - including Gelman & Eckles Library, Lerner Health and Wellness Center, the W Street Gate and the Mount Vernon Campus Shuttle. We invite neighbors of the Foggy Bottom and Mount Vernon Campus to apply for a Friends of GW GWorld Card today.
