Building access is available to GW students, faculty, and staff who have submitted proof of vaccination and had that documentation accepted or were approved for a vaccine exception. They must also have taken their required COVID test and have a GWorld card that is enabled for campus access. GWorld access is typically enabled within about two hours of the COVID test. No one will be allowed to sign in without a physical GWorld card or enter the library if their GWorld card tap is denied. Library access is not available for alumni or visitors.  

Library Computers

The GW Libraries provide access to Windows and Mac workstations equipped with a variety of software.

In the 2020-21 academic year, Gelman computers on floors 2 and 6 and in the Create Digital Studio on the 1st floor are available for reservation. Virginia Campus Library computers are also available for reservation. GW community members can log on with their NetIDs and passwords. Contact the Academic Technologies Solutions Center at 202-994-7900 for help with library computers.

If you are away from campus this semester, you can access specialized software via remote/virtual computing. Learn what is best for your situation.
