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.
