Off-Campus Housing: In DC it is very difficult to find a nice apartment, in a nice area for a great price. Finding space to park your car if you live in the area or go to school is also very difficult. If you can't find a space then you have to park your care in a garage, which costs a lot more.

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.
