Green Move Out

Donation bags at Green Move Out

Green Move-Out, a major university initiative, makes the residence hall move-out process more environmentally- and community-friendly through a multifaceted donation drive. During move-out, students drop items such as bedding and linens, non-perishable food items, clothing, and books in boxes in residence halls labeled with a Green Move-Out sticker. These items are then bagged and donated to local charity partners.

This initiative is only made possible through the support of an unprecedented partnership of students, staff, and faculty volunteers, and sponsors.

Green Move-Out occurs every May. Questions regarding Green Move-Out can be emailed to: [email protected].


Green Affinity Housing in District House

District House

Affinity Housing presents the opportunity for GW registered student organizations, athletic groups, and academic organizations to create their own living community around their particular needs and interests.

The Sustainability Affinity exists as a space where students share in living environmentally just and sustainable lifestyles. This learning takes places in many ways-- from cooking with local food in the affinity's (large!) communal kitchen to attending actions together.
