5 College Junior

Computers: They have quite a few computer labs, as well as a library.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: This university Is built around the working class. It's not a basic university.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I have no idea or information about the nightlife at the school. The campus does not have much to provide a space for nightlife and parties after school hours. I do not party with the students.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I believe that the professors that I have experienced are very good and very caring. The curriculum is good, I am impressed with what I have learned. The workload is not too heavy especially for people who have no or light responsibilities and therefore the time to focus only or mainly on school work. I really enjoyed rediscovering if my brain could handle math, which I loved until I was told, in high school, that I had fulfilled my math requirements and that I could not take anymore math classes for the last year and a half high school. So I was pleased to see that I could hand math and the instructor was very good and willing to be creative in how he helped students to gain an understanding of the material.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There should be an opportunity to choose, I do not know, in regards to the rating. As I explained previously, I do not have a need for housing and as far as I know, there is no on campus housing at UDC. Maybe the apartment building(s), that I was told, by a student, that provides housing is considered an on campus housing situation, however it is not technically on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: The UDC Campus is not large enough to require a shuttle service. If one takes classes at the community college than one can get there via public transportation, which is just feet from the campus buildings. This and other parts of the survey are not very applicable to UDC.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I am not very familiar with Housing off-campus. There is no on campus housing, of which I am aware. I was shown one of the apartment buildings very near the campus and told that it provided housing for students. Public transportation is basically on campus and very available. The buses stop right at the campus that the metro station is just feet off the actual campus. I am an adult student that lives in the same city, so I would not have a need for information about off campus housing and therefore am not very familiar with the availability, costs, quality, etc. of the housing situation.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I don't actually frequent the restaurants near the campus. I have been to one and I am familiar with a couple of others from other parts of time and during periods of my life when I could afford to eat out. This information is what I used to rate the restaurants. At this time, since I cannot afford to eat out I usually eat from the grocery store near by, bring my lunch or eat when I get home.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live off campus but not part of the school. campus life is pretty non existent here

3 College Sophomore

Weather: when it snows b/c of the heavy government affiliation & public transportation they shut down the city so its fine. I don't live on campus so its no burden. better to close then have traffic and safety issues all day

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

The teachers at UDC are wonderful for the most part, and the assistant professors and others who have been working and teaching for years are sincerely interested in seeing their students do well. The University of the District of Columbia may not be the most popular school in the district, but some of the professors here also teach at other great universities in D.C.

The University is the only public institute of higher education in Washington, D.C. This means it relies on district funding, and due to budget constraints, UDC doesn’t offer some of the things that can be found at the local private universities. However, the University is undergoing construction projects and is growing, and tuition is a lot more affordable than the private institutions here. Overall, the price and location of UDC is wonderful and provides a great learning experience. As long as you stay aware of what and who is around you, your experience here should be good.
