What you can only do on the Vern

Eckles Library, which offers free hot chocolate and passes out snacks during finals week, is one of the perks of living on the Mount Vernon Campus.

DVDs from Eckles

Eckles Library has free DVD rentals with both new releases and old favorites. Think of it as your college Blockbuster and use it when you want to have a movie night.

Athletic fields

Foggy Bottom’s main green space is University Yard, but the Mount Vernon Campus has athletic fields for your pick-up game of soccer or ultimate Frisbee. From the soccer and baseball fields to the tennis courts, the Vern gives you everything you need for outdoor athletics.


Learn to spend your GWorld at Zebi because the food is both delicious and convenient for those mornings before your University Writing class when you need a quick bite to eat.


Not all D.C. winters are like last year’s, but when it does snow and you want to go sledding, the Vern is one of the best spots. The athletic fields can also turn into a massive snowball fight arena, and because the campus is in a suburban area, the snow usually sticks around a bit longer.
