Campus Housing: UDC has a unique campus housing situation. Students are afforded the opportunity to live in one the most expensive parts of DC at a reasonable rate. The units are pretty close to the campus. There are underground grocery shopping options, swimming pools, tennis courts, grill areas and much more. The most unfortunate part is that the last year that the university will offer it to students is the 2015-2016 academic year.

Greek Life: I was given the opportunity to become a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc., Omicron Omicron chapter. Joining has opened many doors for me.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: My favorite experience with the institution was the opportunity to live in on campus housing. I worked as a resident advisor, so it was always readily accessible. It is the only public institution in DC, so I graduated with limited debt. I was also given the opportunity to participate in Greek Life.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: There is no football team and other athletics have been discontinued. Overall the athletic program is weak. The girl's basketball team is solid as well as the women's track and field.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus, my school campus building is still in progress.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I do not live in campus. My school is still in process of building a hostel for students. However, some non Greek students view Greek affiliated student as very active in the community. There are currently non Greek housing that am aware of going on now since the housing is still in progress.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: One thing that make my school unique is affordability. Tuition is fair to both poor and the rich. If I have to choose again, I wouldn't choose my school because I will like to explore what is happening in other school and due to cut down of majority of the courses from the campus.

3 College Senior

Athletics: The athletic facility is considered adequate. I don't really participate in any school sports but like to support my school team each time they play. Overall, team performance and participation is not generally part of the campus life.

4 College Junior

Diversity: my school is liberal towards ethnic, race, economic background, political belief, religion and sexual orientation of the students

4 College Junior

Academics: professors are great and qualify for their professions, curriculum is clear and easy to understand, registration process is tedious but advisors are there to help, workload can be overwhelming but helpful to individuals' careers, free tutorials or extra lessons are available on campus for those who are having problems in some courses, library and computer labs are readily available for students

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: my professors are so qualified for the courses they teach. They are so passionate about their professions in such a way that it motivates we student and make us to fall in love with out majors. our descriptions very clear, teaching and class style excellent and class size is appropriate.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: my degree or major is very lucrative. getting a job is not difficult after graduation

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: my campus is generally safe as to the patrol of campus police and other security officers

4 College Junior

Greek Life: dont really know much about the Greek life

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: my school is one of the affordable schools in washington DC area especially for international student. also provision of tuition payment installation made it easy for student paying out of pocket to pay their tuition

3 College Junior

Academics: Registration is easy but the amount of classes available could use some assistance. The full time professors seem to be more dedicated than some of the adjunct professors. Some adjunct professors are good as well. If you work full time, you may not want to try and go to school full time because the course load can be difficult to manage.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Class sizes are not too big. Classes fill up quickly. Does not seem that the school offers enough evening classes. Junior and Senior classes are harder to get into, which can prolong graduation. Some professors are great and others not so much. School is not that convenient for students who work full time and go to school in the evenings.

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.
