College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I don't know much about off campus housing

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.

    Best Off-Campus Housing Options

The University of the District of Columbia does not offer on-campus housing, so all students must either find an off-campus apartment or live with their parents. The University does have a relationship with Archstone Van Ness, an apartment complex near campus. The complex reserves units for UDC students, but they must fill out an application through the University’s Office of Residence Life, and space is limited.

In terms of other off-campus options, there are lots of apartments around. The main con is that D.C. is expensive. Luckily, the public transportation system in the area is extensive, so students can search for cheaper apartments a little farther away and take the Metro to campus.
