April 18, 2017
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank will host their spring meetings at the IMF/World Bank complex in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood from Friday, April 21 through Sunday, April 23. No events related to the spring meetings are currently scheduled to be held on the GW campus. 
Parking restrictions, sidewalk and road closures, and detours are expected near the IMF/World Bank because of security perimeters.

Pedestrian access to university facilities will be maintained throughout the duration of the meetings. There are no road closures on the Foggy Bottom Campus. GW operated parking garages and shuttles will remain operational throughout the event. Monitor the Vern Express Twitter feed @TheVernExpress for updates on travel between the Foggy Bottom and Mount Vernon Campuses.
