Programming & Events

The George Washington University's open dining plan was designed with our student's diverse and nutritious food preferences in mind, affording them the flexibility and freedom to enjoy dining in a way that best meets their individual needs. We’ve opened the city up to our students by partnering with more than 105 dining and grocery vendors who accept Dining Cash. You simply pay for your food purchases with a swipe of your GWorld card.

As a part of our dining program GW Dining offer a series of programs and events throughout the school year that offer students an oppurtunity to make the most of their meal plan and learn a few things along the way. If you have any recommendations for programs that you would like GW Dining to develop, please email us at [email protected]
