Deciphering GWorld 2.0

The key to your residence hall and Colonial Cash account underwent a few changes this summer. Check out the new features below:

  • Larger photos allow for easier identification of each card holder.
  • Holograms make it harder to create duplicates of a GWorld card, providing authenticity and increasing campus safety.
  • Randomly generated card number provides security and privacy for each individual on the GW campus.
  • Tap-and-enter system allows individuals to use their GWorld like a Metro SmarTrip card instead of swiping into residence halls and other buildings.
  • User classification categorizes individuals on campus as student, alumni, faculty or staff. Access to facilities and buildings will depend on your classification.
  • Expiration date helps University officials determine whether cardholders are current members of the GW community,
    ensuring safety and security for students, faculty and staff.
