The capital of the United States is not only an important, historical location to visit, it can also be a terrific city where one can study, live, and grow. DC is located within the Washington metropolitan area—the seventh largest metropolitan in the country, making it an exciting area to find convenient student housing.
After graduation, DC offers many job opportunities due to the numerous non-profit organizations, lobbying groups, and professional associations located within the city, along with all three branches of the federal government. In addition to political attractions, DC is home to The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Washington National Opera, the National Symphony Orchestra, and the Washington Ballet. Other famous theatres that students can visit include the historic Ford Theatre where President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated.
Apartment complexes can be found near DC’s large National Mall, a spacious park located between the Lincoln Memorial and the United States Capitol. The mall, walking distance from The White House, is also where students will find The Washington Monument, the National World War II Memorial, and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, among others. Student housing can even be found near the famous Smithsonian Institution, which encompasses 19 museums and the national zoo—all free to the public!
Washington DC is not only a hub of historical monuments; it is also full of top-notch universities. Private universities include the American University, George Washington University, Georgetown University, and Howard University. Students also enjoy attending DC’s public institutions, such as The University of the District of Columbia, and prestigious medical research institutions, such as Washington Hospital Center, and the Children’s National Medical Center.
Sports fans, especially students, love living in DC because they have access to all four major professional teams in one great city! The Washington Wizards basketball, Washington Capitals hockey, D.C. United soccer, and The Washington Redskins football all play in stadiums around or near the city.
In sum, the U.S.’s capital is an opportunity to live in student housing within an epicenter of diverse food, culture, arts, sports, history, and fun!
