View student contributors

The main campus of the University of the District of Columbia is the Van Ness campus, which is located at Connecticut Avenue and Van Ness Street. There is also a new campus for the Community College at 801 N. Capital St. NE. The Community College of the District of Columbia is associated with UDC and has a much smaller campus in terms of number of buildings.

On the Van Ness campus, there are 11 buildings. Right now there are no traditional dorms or student centers on campus, but the University is in the process of developing these.
