Last night, reps from DCRA paid a visit to the campus of George Washington University to take part in their annual off-campus housing fair. We attended one of these already this year at American University and we plan on attending the off-campus housing fairs of any campus that will allow us to participate. We’ll be heading to Howard University next Friday (13th!) from 12pm to 2pm to pass out information to students there about how to safely choose an apartment here in the District.
A lot of you are already checking out apartments around the city for next year as the semester rapidly reaches the midway point and we want to make sure you don’t get caught in a bad situation–horrible landlord and a crappy place. If your university is having an off-campus housing fair and you’d like for us to come out, drop us a line or hit us up in the comments and let us know so we can be sure to make it out. Many students who attend colleges and universities in the District are pretty far away from home and it’s important that your parents can rest easy that you are living in a safe environment. It’s important that you feel that you are living in a comfortable and safe environment.
