Does the institution have a trayless dining program in which trays are removed from or not available in dining halls?:
Yes

A brief description of the trayless dining program:

GW does not have a traditional dining program. Rather, there are a few central eateries managed by Sodexo. These include J Street, GDub Java, Pelham Commons and Zebi. Other food choices available to students are through a network of vendors on and near the urban campus – such as Whole Foods – that accept funds through the student GWorld card. Answers in this survey are related to the Sodexo-run facilities only. Of these choices, only Pelham Commons provides trays as part of the dining experience. The main dining facility is the J Street venue and the majority of its clientelle is comprised of Freshman students, roughly 2,500 people.
