Living on Mount Vernon
More than 700 students call the Mount Vernon Campus home each year.
Mount Vernon Campus is home to a growing number of innovative living and learning communities for students who want to combine a small-college experience with the resources and opportunities available at a major university. Programs at Mount Vernon provide guided academic opportunities for students who want to collaborate with other students, faculty, and post-doctoral fellows on a variety of exciting cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary themes and projects, and who eventually want to chart their own path with individual research projects and other challenges. Mount Vernon also provides special programs for residents, from cultural events to special excursions around the greater Washington metro area.
The Mount Vernon Campus features six residence halls dedicated to giving students a traditional college experience, with the halls providing a variety of living arrangements, from traditional shared rooms to suite-style spaces.
