GW classes are canceled, administrative and academic offices are closed, and activities and events will not take place on Thursday, March 5 at all of our Washington metropolitan area campuses and locations because of inclement weather throughout the region.

When the university declares a change to its operating status, employees classified as Designated On-Site are required to report to and/or remain at work, employees classified as Essential are generally expected to telecommute, and employees classified as Non-Essential are not required to work unless directed to do so by a supervisor.

Science and Engineering Hall (SEH) epitomizes GW’s investment in research infrastructure and facilities that enable innovative research and teaching. With these new facilities at their disposal, GW researchers are poised to expand the depth and breadth of human knowledge. Utilizing the building’s four specialized labs, faculty members now possess the capabilities to conduct research on the Foggy Bottom campus on everything from large aerospace structures to the next generation of nanotechnology.


SEH will serve as the academic home for thousands of undergraduate and graduate students and will expand opportunities for learning inside and outside classrooms and labs. SEH facilitates opportunities for student researchers at GW to engage in all stages of the discovery process by witnessing and actively taking part in research.


GW's faculty and students have a passion for changing the world, and nowhere is this passion more apparent than in the laboratories of SEH. As GW’s faculty members look for ways to improve everything from tissue regeneration and drug delivery to robotics and sustainable ecosystems, the work researchers conduct at SEH will have an impact far beyond its walls.
