GW Occupational Therapy Facility

Welcome from the Nation's Capital!

The nation's capital is an innovative, fast-paced, and urban city immersed in diverse cultures and steeped in political history. This region has an abundance of free museums, historical landmarks, intercontinental foods, and people from diverse backgrounds.

The GW OT program is located in a brand-new space on the Foggy Bottom campus in the famous Watergate Complex. It was designed to inspire as it is filled with photos from around campus and Washington, D.C. With a word wall that reflects the values of the program to a wall size map to highlight the diverse origins of the students and faculty, and more! Furnishing consists of warm, regal blue, burnt orange, calming gray, and natural wood tones. This is the perfect place to learn and practice skills with the highest quality supplies and equipment.

Communal Spaces

Plug your laptop into a TV monitor to watch asynchronous lectures, or take a breather in between classes during Residency Weeks in the large, comfortable sofas. Games of cornhole or cards are there when you need to keep the energy high! This is your space to access freely.
