On-Campus Resources

If you live in the DC area or plan on visiting campus, be sure to use our on-campus discounts and resources for alumni.

Order a Transcript or Request a Diploma Replacement

The Office of the Registrar maintains all academic records and issues official transcripts. It also provides certification of enrollment documents (for loan deferments, Social Security benefits, health insurance, or other services) and verification of degrees earned at GW.

Follow the instructions from the Office of the Registrar to:


Get a GWorld Card

Next time you’re on campus, stop by the GWorld Card Office and get your new GWorld card or replace an existing one. GWorld cards are required to gain access to campus facilities, including Gelman Library and Charles E. Smith Athletic Center.

Colonial Cash

If you transition from a student GWorld to an alumni GWorld card within 35 months of your last purchase as a student, any Colonial Cash balance on your student card will carry over to your alumni GWorld card. As a graduate you can add Colonial Cash to your card just like you did when you were a student.

Campus Access and Discounts

GW graduates receive exclusive campus access including gym discounts, library privileges, and parking benefits.

Lerner Health and Wellness Center

Alumni living in the Foggy Bottom/West End neighborhood are eligible to apply for membership to the Lerner Health and Wellness Center.

You must reside in the area generally bound by 19th Street on the east, Constitution Avenue on the south, Rock Creek Park on the west, and N Street on the north.

Gelman Library

Alumni with a GWorld card have to access to the Gelman Library's facilities, services, and resources, including limited borrowing privileges.

Jacob Burns Law Library

The Jacob Burns Law Library provides access to its collections for graduates of the GW Law School. It also offers alumni access to selected databases for locating articles, books and related materials, as well as on-site reference service. A Law School alumni card or GWorld card is required for access.

Himmelfarb Health Sciences Library

The Himmelfarb Health Sciences Library is open to alumni of the GW Medical Center Monday-Friday, 7:30am-6pm. A valid ID Card is required for admission.

Luther W. Brady Art Gallery

The Luther W. Brady Art Gallery features several exhibitions each year, including university-related shows and permanent collection exhibitions. Contact the gallery at 202-994-1525 to receive invitations to attend exhibition preview events for alumni.

Campus Parking

Parking on GW's Foggy Bottom campus is extremely limited. Alumni attending events or other activities on campus are encouraged to use one of GW's visitor parking garages.

Alumni Bricks

Beginning in 1990, each student receiving an earned degree has a brick engraved with his or her name and degree placed on campus. These personal mementoes form picturesque walkways through the quads and gardens of the Foggy Bottom campus.

Bricks for the classes 2002-2012 are located in University Yard. Bricks for the classes 1990-1995 and 1997-2001 are located in Kogan Plaza. Bricks for the class of 1996 are located in Anniversary Park (F Street between 21st and 22nd Streets).

Classes of 2002-2012 (University Yard)
Classes of 1989-2001 (Kogan Plaza & Mid-Campus Quad)

Notice: Alumni Brick Program

The option for graduates to request an engraved commemorative brick or a library bookplate ended with 2013 graduates. 

Although a review of the brick program was initiated because most of the Foggy Bottom brick hardscape spaces already have commemorative bricks, the office of the provost decided that the funds could be better allocated to scholarships.  The program has cost the university approximately $250,000 annually.  Going forward, this funding will be used each year to create a fund in the name of the graduating class to fund scholarships for future students.
