Campus Building Hours

People walking through Kogan Plaza

To establish a consistent, clear and transparent operating schedule for Foggy Bottom campus and the Corcoran School buildings, the Division of Operations, in collaboration with the Provost’s Office, has developed a list of building hours for general access campus buildings.

These hours are the result of evaluating scheduled activities in the buildings, the type of spaces located in each building and the general building utilization. Building hours also take into account the university’s desire to ensure that adequate general purpose study space is available for students around the clock and that those who need specialized studio or lab spaces are able to work beyond public hours. Efforts were made to create a level of consistency across buildings, where possible. Finding the appropriate balance between building hours and utilization will both enhance the security of our buildings and assist George Washington University (GW) in reaching its sustainability goals to reduce off-hours energy usage by limiting electricity and HVAC operations.

The building hours will be reviewed each semester, taking into account any changes to campus operations, and any necessary updates will be made. For further information about building schedules, visit the Facilities Services website. A full list of buildings and their locations is available on GW's virtual tour.

Please note: Corcoran Hall (21st Street) is NOT the Corcoran School's Flagg Building (17th Street).
