Does Colonial Bellhop have any influence over housing assignments?
Colonial Bellhop is a completely separate entity from GW Housing and has no ability to change housing assignments. If you have any questions regarding housing or your fall assignment, please visit living.gwu.edu.
How do you find us on move in day?
On move-in day, we will be waiting outside of your fall housing assignment wearing NEON YELLOW SHIRTS that say "Colonial Bellhop" on them...we're very hard to miss! In addition, you will be given a cell phone number to call on move-in day if you need to reach us.
How do move-in times work?
To make move-in day more efficient, we have partnered with GW Housing so that your Colonial Bellhop move-in time can override the time originally assigned by GW Housing.
Can you be late to your scheduled move-in time?
Our moves are scheduled in 20-minute intervals, and if you are late then we will be late for all the following moves. Since we'd like to avoid such problems, it is very important that you arrive at the time assigned. You will also be given the cell phone number of your group leader should any travel issues arise.
Can you be refunded if you have to cancel?
All orders are final. If for any reason you need to cancel, we ask that you submit your request in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
