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. If there is family residing in the Washington, D.C. metro area, the university will grant students permission to reside with them for the duration of the program. This preference must be communicated to Professor Alexander during the application process.
The D.C. Metropolitan Police's website is a great comprehensive resource for crime prevention and personal safety tips.
