3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is the only housing offered through UDC. The apartments are arranged through UDC and offer ease of access to the campus, stores, and parking if need. The best option is to find your own place that would be more conducive for you.

Off-Campus Dining: Although, there are few home cooking or full service restaurants in the campus area or near the CC.( Community College ) There are an abundance of fast food restaurants, mobile takeout trucks and standing carts to choose from.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Unfortunately, most of the students who start a the Community College come for the financial aid, verses the promise of a good education to become a positive, contributing member of our society, and a positive mentor for others.

2 College Sophomore

Administration: Unfortunately, security tends to be lenient on areas where they should be far more strict, ( example: loud conversations in quiet areas.) vs. ( you see a student who has shown you their student ID yesterday, but you harass them for not having it today.)

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I was given the opportunity to receive Financial Aid for a few semesters, but because of one bad grade, I out of four semesters, I lost my approval.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Considering how large the campus is, the dinning hall is small. The food is good, but as a student you would think that there would be a better student discount offered!!!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Based on observation and from what I've been told. The shared apartments offered through UDC housing program is comfortable for the student, access to the campus is great, and the ease of access to parking, food, and other shops are very convenient. The cost is very pricey considering each apartment is shared by at least 2 students and is only available through the fall and spring semesters. Also, not all personalities are compatible.

Off-Campus Housing: The Campus is in the District of Columbia which is a place where you kind of have to pick and choose what is important to you because you can have it all. but living on campus is very limited because the campus rents out apartments from a neighboring complex. So because it is located in a nicer part of the city everything around it is expensive. However, if you want to live a little bit further for cheaper you don't have to worry about getting around but you may have to consider safety and parking, landlords and whatever else is the problem with any city.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: on Connecticut avenue where the School is there is whole blocks dedicated to dining, Spanish (South/ Central American), Greek, African (Ethiopian), Italian and chain and franchise food. if that's not good enough the metro is right there and so is the bus.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Every once and a while there are parties on campus but they are non alcoholic. However, many students go to the Greek parties at Howard and there are lots of parties at GW.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Due to the fact that this is a commuter campus many of the administration rules either don't apply or can not be enforced any way. However, the one that can be enforced are admin is very consistent with. how ever those who work in administration can be rude and it is hard to get someone to answer the phone

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I must admit that almost everything in the school has been changing since they have reevaluated the staff. due to the new staff many things have been made available but I have not heard of any scholarships being given I certainly have not received any yet. However, I may not have been made aware of them which says something as well.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I enjoy all of the meal options except for one that are I wouldn't like any way. The price is decent for the level of convenience. of course other school have name brand food options but everything that you would need from chipotle to burger king is in walking distance. The down fall is that no matter what your will be spending your own money because I don't know of their being a meal plan.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Though they are not your conventional dorms that are apart of the campus, they are conveniently across the street in a luxury apartment complex with a beautiful pool and a very nice gym. However, it is not that luxurious the appliances are not as up to date as other luxury apts. in the District and the lay out is pretty much just regular. The non student residents are very nice people but I my self have not seen that much diversity and they mostly all say that they are paying way too much for what they receive.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of places to eat near UDC-CC. Starbucks, McDonalds, Au Bon Pain, a pizza restaurant and more.

3 College Junior

Administration: I don't interact with the officers at all.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: UDC-CC doesn't offer many scholarships unless you're in nursing or law.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: dining on campus is great, also menus are changed daily to give consumers various options as well as change.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Health and safety of student is important to the school. This also shows in that the school provides school insurance for those without private insurance, which is compulsory when no other form of insurance can be proven by a student and at very low cost.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Sporting equipments are up to date. And the university supports athletes by funding and also assist involving students in keeping good grades.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: from information given by friends and class mates i think it is okay varying from place to place.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: really do not have any idea as i do not attend any but being in the middle of the city I think it will be nice.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process was easy and smooth and any issue had was minimal and there was always someone to help if any does arise.

4 College Freshman

Majors: It is really good being in the civil engineering bachelor's program and I do enjoy it. We have opportunities to work on CAD simulation software, robotics project and other unique project. the workload is a little heavy but nothing more than what is expected of an engineering major. finding internships is easy being in the capital of the country were construction is ever on going and the need for civil engineers on high demand, which is why getting a job is also easy.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: the local atmosphere of the school is nice as it is located in the center of the city, and also it is very close to the state's zoo. which is a major place of attraction.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
