GW is shuffling the Marvin Center bookstore as it prepares to create a new student health hub.
The University has moved GW-branded merchandise to a new store on the 2100 block of Pennsylvania Avenue, clearing space for the University Counseling Center, Student Health Service as well as the Center for Alcohol and other Drug Education.
CADE will join the mental and physical health offices in the Marvin Center next spring, the University announced Monday, after GW finishes renovating the first floor of the bookstore late next semester.
Buff and Blue on Penn has opened as a “spirit store” where the University will sell GW-branded items.
The lower level of the bookstore will continue to sell textbooks, school supplies and electronics, and will have a separate entrance.
GW decided to move its health services to the Marvin Center in March after then-Student Association President Julia Susuni lobbied officials to bring UCC and SHS to a centralized location on campus.
