Team Accommodations

Most teams will be staying approximately 2 blocks away from Constitution Hall at George Washington University’s Thurston Hall. However, due to the number of teams coming, a few teams will stay at nearby American University. A shuttle service to Constitution Hall will be provided for the teams at American University (both George Washington and Constitution Hall are approximately 2 blocks from the White House).
