Lodging Near Campus

Please remember that DC is a big city, and one should always remain vigilant of their surroundings. If you have concerns regarding a specific hotel or Airbnb location, there is plenty of information online.

However, to help our members identify areas that might be close to campus and provide a nice variety of dining options and hotels, we recommend looking south of Florida Ave NE. H Street has become a very vibrant area with plenty of businesses and restaurants. West, right outside of campus, Union Market also offers a large variety of dining options but fewer hotels.

We also have early bird rates with two hotels nearby.

The areas north of campus, beyond New York Ave NE and Mt Olivet Rd NE, are not recommended for walking and have much fewer options.
