The Corcoran School of the Arts and Design is dedicated to the artistic development and academic success of our students. As we continue to grow in our relationship with George Washington University (GW), new resources and access to a wide range of services and support are available to help current students with their creative pursuits, academic endeavors and careers.
The GWorld card reader on the E Street entrance of the Corcoran building has been installed and activated. This will allow Corcoran students to access the building at E Street from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. If you are in the building prior to 11:00 p.m., you may remain in the building if you choose to do so. For access to control readers located in other areas of the building, continue to use your Corcoran ID card until we transition the entire building to the GWorld card system.
GW has both in-person and online career resources available through the Center for Career Services, located in Colonial Crossroads on the Marvin Center 5th floor. The office is led by Assistant Provost Rachel Brown and is part of the university-wide career enhancement effort. GW offers online career-development resources as well as in-person consultation. You can use the web-based career development resources, view job openings on GWork, receive customized career counseling and resume review, or attend a job fair or educational sessions held throughout the year.
All student positions are posted on GWork. All full-time students will automatically receive their login information through their GW email address. Please contact GWork Help with any questions.
The Student Employment team in the Center for Career Services manages the hiring process for GW student employees. To learn more about student employment, visit the Center for Career Services' website, contact them at 202-994-8046 and [email protected], or visit them at Colonial Crossroads (5th floor of the Marvin Center).
GW offers a free shuttle service between Foggy Bottom and the Virginia Science and Technology Campus in Ashburn, VA. The Vern Express (MVC) shuttle stops three blocks from the Corcoran's Flagg Building at the American Red Cross (located at 2025 E Street, NW) en route from the Mount Vernon Campus to Funger Hall (2201 G Street, NW). The MVC operates 24 hours a day / 7 days a week during the academic year. Visit the Transportation and Parking Services website for additional information.
There are various outlets students can turn to for information on news, events and services within the Corcoran School and the university at large, including the Corcoran School website. The Corcoran School also has a very active social media network in which we invite you to participate (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter).
