Campus Access

Access Policies

Students, Faculty, Staff and Postdocs

In order to access campus spaces, students, faculty, staff and postdocs need to follow a series of steps:

  1. Upload completed vaccination documentation to the medical portal

    •  Once uploaded, it can take up to a week to be verified.
  2. Get your return to campus COVID-19 test
    • Appointments must be scheduled through the medical portal.
    • It can take up to two hours from your appointment time to reactivate or activate your GWorld card.


Visitors coming to GW’s campuses and facilities are not required to demonstrate proof of a COVID-19 vaccination and booster. In addition, visitors and guests at indoor events in GW venues (Smith Center, Lisner Auditorium, Jack Morton Auditorium, etc.) are no longer required to verify full vaccination against COVID-19, except where expressly stated.  Please check the specific event's website for detailed information. View updated FAQs about visitor requirements.

Additional information on testing is available on both our testing and frequently asked questions pages.
