Living in D.C.
Each year, Washington and Lee University secures a block of apartment suites in a good location in or near the District. The suites are always located close to public transportation. Students can expect to live in a double-occupancy room with some shared living space. The university works to keep housing costs as low as possible.
The D.C. Metropolitan Police's website is a great comprehensive resource for crime prevention and personal safety tips.
