Getting Around

GW’s Foggy Bottom Campus is well served by public transit. Because finding parking within the downtown area can be challenging and expensive, we encourage attendees to ride the Metro whenever visiting GW and exploring DC. Alternatively, taxis and ride share services such as Lyft, Uber, and Via are easily accessible to transport you to, from, and around GW. However, if you decide to drive, the following are the available garages on-campus for visitors.

  • Marvin Center (entrance H street, NW between 21st and 22nd Streets, open Monday-Friday 7am-12am, closed on weekends and holidays)
