Does the institution have indoor and secure bike storage, shower facilities, and lockers for bicycle commuters in at least one building?:
Yes

A brief description of the facilities:

Yes. The university maintains several facilities for bikers on campus. The university has 131 racks, 603 spaces. As new buildings come online, the university is integrating more secured bike storage and additional racks. Future storage facilities will include a bike repair station as well. In fall 2011, the Office of Sustainability partnered with the GW Health and Wellness Center to offer a shower-pass program to the university's gym. This program provides discounted semester-long gym membership to the gym to cyclists and pedestrian commuters to use the shower and locker facilities.
