Faculty & Staff


All active GW faculty and staff members --full time, part time, temporary, adjunct, visiting, and emeriti -- are eligible to receive a GWorld card.

If you're a student and staff member, you must maintain a staff card. If you're a faculty and staff member, your card type will be based on your primary classification in the university Banner database.


Your employment status must be fully processed and viewable in the university Banner database before you can present a valid U.S. government issued photo ID to get your GWorld card. 

Card Fees

Your first card is free and a $25.00 fee will be charged to replace your lost or stolen card.


Your card will provide you access to GW Libraries, the Lerner Health & Wellness Center if you purchase a membership and to parking garages if you sign up for parking access.


You can add Colonial Cash to your card or purchase a voluntary voluntary campus dining plan.
