Four blocks from the White House, the university has been at the heart of the US capital since 1821. Renowned today for politics and international affairs, its main 42-acre Foggy Bottom campus and satellites at Mount Vernon and Ashburn house nine schools and colleges, where 25,000 "colonials" are served by a 2,000-strong faculty.
