It reminds me of a hotel (sort of); the rooms are a decent size, but there is no kitchen, as there are shared kitchens in the Aston (on each floor). It's very close to the law school, which is great, but people that I know who did live there did not like it very much. Keep in mind that it is an inexpensive option in terms of housing in DC. I'm not sure of the exact price, but I THINK it's like $900/month with cable and internet provided (I think; I am not sure on the price, but it is in that ballpark).
1) Every room has a kitchen, full size refrigerator, dishwasher, private bathroom, individual AC and heating unit.
2) $7,467.50 per semester ($1495/month), includes all utilities (electricity, AC, heating, internet, cable).
3) I would say 75% who live here like it. If you like convenience and socializing with people, then you will like the Aston.
It's about a 10 minute walk to class, but I've made in 5 before. 1 block from Walgreens, CVS, and gas station. Liqueur store across the street, literally. 3 blocks from Trader Joe's, public swimming pool, about 30 restaurants/bars/club/lounges. Can't beat the location.
I really apologize; when I replied to this question I was thinking of the Hova for some reason. The poster who corrected me is absolutely accurate regarding the Aston. Sorry for misreading your question.
But do they allow cats?
Huh, not really sure about that one. I'm sure GW Housing could answer that if you e-mailed them. I myself don't know anyone in student housing with a pet, so I would just be guessing if I said yes or no. Sorry.
EDIT: This is from a FAQ section about the HOVA (GW housing apartments)---
Can I bring my pet with me to HOVA?
Pets are not allowed in GW residence halls.
So, I guess the answer is no.
