Travel Accommodations & Planning

Please wait to make all travel arrangements until after you have registered for a CI session.
GW is a city campus well served by public transit. Because finding parking within the downtown area can be challenging and expensive, we strongly encourage that students ride the Metro whenever visiting GW and exploring DC. However, if you decide to drive, the following are the available garages on-campus for visitors.

Parking at CI

Effective February 1, 2015, Visitor Parking Garages are located:

  • Marvin Center (entrance H street, NW between 21st and 22nd Streets, open Monday-Friday 7am-12am, closed on weekends and holidays)
  • Elliott School of International Affairs (entrance at the corner of 19th and E Streets, NW, open Monday-Friday 7am-11pm, closed on weekends and holidays)
  • G Street Garage (access from both 20th Street and 21st Street, NW between F and G streets, open 24/7)
  • The University Parking Garage (UPG), located under the Science and Engineering Hall (entrance located on H Street, NW between 22nd and 23rd streets, open 24/7)
