The GWorld card is the official university identification card that is issued to every student, faculty, staff, and visitor at GW. The GWorld card has many purposes. Its main uses are to gain access to dorm rooms and campus facilities and to pay for food and supplies at various stores around campus.

Colonial CashEdit

Colonial Cash can be used in many restaurants and stores on campus for food but also for other items from those stores. See the List of GWorld Colonial Cash Retail Partners for a full list of of places at which the Colonial Cash can be used.

Sodexo Dining DollarsEdit

Freshmen and sophomores have mandatory "Dining Dollars", which may only be spent at restaurants that take Dining Dollars - that is, J Street at the Marvin Center (including the WOW Wingery on the fifth floor), the Ames Cafe on the Mount Vernon campus, and the G-Dub cafe in Duques Hall. The purpose of these dining dollars are that freshmen have money that they can only spend on food, and that select venues on GW's campus are guaranteed some revenue. See the List of GWorld Mandatory Dining Venues for a full list of of places at which the Sodexo Dining Dollars can be used.
