The Oval Office is the official office of the President of the United States. The room features three large south-facing windows behind the president's desk, and a fireplace at the north end. It has four doors: the east door opens to the Rose Garden; the west door leads to a private study and dining room; the northwest door opens onto the main corridor of the West Wing; and the northeast door opens to the office of the president's secretary.

The Oval Office first appeared in Midterms, where Selina and Kent got into a mild fight, while the office was occupied by Stuart Hughes. This was the only time the Oval Office made an appearance in the shows first three seasons.

The Roosevelt Room is a meeting room in the West Wing of the White House, the official home and principal workplace of the President of the United States. Located almost in the center of the West Wing, and near the Oval Office the room is named for two related U.S. presidents, Theodore Roosevelt and Franklin D. Roosevelt. The two arguably contributed more than any other presidents to the design and construction of the West Wing. It first appeared in East Wing.

S2 West Wing Floor Plan

Floor Plan of the Season 2 West Wing set.

-Veep has gone through three different West Wing sets. The first one was used in seasons two and three. It featured Ben's office, Selina's West Wing office, Kent's office, and a teal-colored conference room. It did not include an Oval Office. The second set was used in season four. It was a bit bigger, and featured the Oval Office, Kent & Ben's offices, a Press Briefing room, a Press Bullpen, a Lobby, and a Roosevelt Room. The third set was used in season five, as they had to change sets when the show moved from Baltimore to Los Angeles. The third set featured everything used in season four, plus Jonah's office, a break room, and extended hallways.
