Accessing The Store

Students, faculty, and staff will need to sign up for access to The Store using a GW UserID and password. Shoppers will remain completely anonymous out of respect for their privacy, and we will not receive the names of anybody who signs up for The Store. We have faith that every shopper who requests access needs this resource, and trust them to take what they need and leave enough for other shoppers.

Once gaining access, shoppers enter the pantry by using their GWorld cards to tap into The Store. Shoppers are free to choose from a variety of items that meet their needs. To comply with GW’s Single Use Plastics Policy, please bring a reusable shopping bag for your items.
