Below you will find a list of housing opportunities and resources supplied by alumni, students and friends of the School of Law. We solicited this information to help UDC Law students not only find housing, but to help you keep expenses as low as possible - because we know that law graduate indebtedness is the single greatest deterrent to the pursuit of public interest legal careers. We asked for information on housing that was affordable, safe and conveniently located to the School of Law - particularly housing in DC itself, so that incoming students can establish residency in time for their second year and, thereby, save tens of thousands of dollars in tuition! However, please note that the School of Law is not in a position to vet these listings and we post them here for your information only. We make no guarantee as to their safety or desirability: caveat emptor (caveat rentor?) must apply!

Crestwood NW DC Room in Home

Posted By Joe Libertelli, 9 hours ago
(Editor's note: Crestwood is right across Rock Creek Park from UDC and is very beautiful.  If it wasn't for the deep valley of Rock Creek, it would be an easy 5 minute bike ride!)

 I have a furnished bedroom and private bath available in our 5 bedroom home in NW DC that is a 10 minute walk to the Clark School of Law.   Its very nice and bright  and I'd appreciate you posting this listing so students can see it. You can walk a few blocks to bus/metro. We live on a route to points downtown (25 minutes by bus) and to the metro. If you want to experience the city, you can walk to Adam Morgan/Mt Pleasant. We are 1 mile from Dupont Circle (you could walk in nice weather) and the U street corridor for nightlife. Van Ness is a short walk. Our neighborhood 'Crestwood' is well established and surrounded by Rock Creek Park for a quiet woody atmosphere in the heart of DC so jogging, biking is popular. It is safe, quiet neighborhood. where do you work?

 

We are a semi retired professional couple in our 50s.  The student would have use of our other home amenities;  laundry, patio  park across the street etc.  We do have a small old dog and an indoor/outdoor cat. Neither will have access to this floor. We also have wireless Internet for a computer in the room.  There is a TV in the room. We have parking in front of our home or off street if there is a car to park. There is never any problem with parking.  We are charging $950 a month for one person and this includes cleaning service. The suite is available starting in Aug for the school year.   There is a one month security deposit required that you will get back if there is no damage to the suite. I'd be happy to send our address and pics if you are still interested if you send me your email address. I can be reached directly at :      church_marlene@yahoo.com

Room w AU Law Student in Chevy Chase MD

Subject: Room available for law student

Hi Mr. Libertelli,

My name is Paula, I am in my 3rd year of law school at American. In the HBA-DC newsletter I saw that you are looking for anyone who might have an available place for incoming UDC law students. I am looking for someone to replace me because my room in a Friendship Heights 2 bedroom 1 bathroom apartment just opened up. However, the building address says it is located in Chevy Chase, MD, not D.C.

The apartment is located in a really beutiful area, full of stores and there is also a movie theater. The walk from the apartment to the metro is 8-10 minutes; however, there is a shuttle that takes you there approximately every half hour. Friendship Heights station is only 2 stops away from the Vann Ness station, where UDC-Law is located.

The apartment will be available to move in on August 2nd. The student who takes the room will be rooming with my current roommate, who is a 2nd year law student at American. We are looking for a female, non-smoker.

Depending on the room the student wants to take the rent is either $1200 or $1100. Both rooms are roughly the same size, but the master room has a walk-in closet and an additional closet.The other room does not have its own closet, but the previous leaser is willing to sell a portable closet.. The utilities and cable are included. This is a tweve month lease. To move in the student would have to pay an application fee of $25 and the first month’s rent when she signs the lease. No deposit money is needed since we already have it covered!

Now about the apartment: the apartment is located in a beautiful building; it has a great gym and a roof top pool. Also, the apartment is located on the last floor (17) and it has an amazing view. Below I am sending a link of the building.

Please have any interested student contact me at this email and I can send them pictures.

Thank you!
