Off Campus Student Affairs

Welcome to Off-Campus Student Affairs! 

The Office of Off-Campus Student Affairs (OCSA) extends community building and learning beyond the campus of the George Washington University by providing resources, services, and programs designed to assist and guide students in navigating the process of moving from residential living on campus to independent living in the surrounding community. Our office is committed to educating students on how to become active and responsible members in their surrounding communities.


Begin Your Housing Search

GW's Off-Campus Housing website and our Guide to Living Off-Campus are two excellent resources to start your search and find housing options.  

Be A Good Neighbor Mandatory Training

One of the great benefits of attending The George Washington University is our location in the Foggy Bottom/West End and Foxhall communities.  We enjoy numerous cultural activities, excellent shopping, restaurants, and entertainment opportunities. As a member of the GW, Foggy Bottom/West End and Foxhall communities, we all have a responsibility to be good citizens and good neighbors.

Online Orientation
The primary goal of this annual required training is to enable you to understand your rights and responsibilities as a citizen of the Foggy Bottom and Washington, DC communities. With this knowledge you can contribute to creating an environment that embraces the concept of community and respect. You can complete the training at your own pace and start and stop the training. 

When you sign in to the training, please be sure to use your Name and Student ID.

Questions on How to Dispose of Something in DC?

There's an App for That!

It’s not always easy remembering which items are recyclable, which items require scheduling a bulk pick-up, and which items are considered household hazardous waste. To take the guesswork out of waste disposal and recycling, the Department of Public Works (DPW) has created a new web app that allows residents to type in almost any item they can think of, after which they will be provided with information on how that item should be properly disposed of, recycled, reused or composted in the District.

DPW also collects large, bulky items by appointment from residential households that receive DPW trash collection service. To make an appointment, please call the Mayor's Citywide Call Center at 311 or visit the 311 service request website.
