Postby tonidee » Wed Feb 19, 2014 3:47 pm

Any thoughts on the best way to find summer housing? Any local schools with summer housing options?

GULC has summer housing. I'm sure the other law schools do too.

Any thoughts on GWU's housing? I've heard mixed reviews.

I stayed at Catholic U, and my sis stayed at GW. The choice generally was mainly due to scheduling, since they were available at different times. If you have the ability to choose, go by neighborhood. Catholic U wasn't bad in itself, but there isn't really anything out there. GW's neighborhood is a bit more centrally located and lively.

My inquiry was about the quality of the GWU housing, but I was able to secure something in another neighborhood. Thanks for the suggestions.

For future reference: GW dorms are hit or miss. The newer buildings are generally pretty nice relative to other dorms, but they are still college dorms. The rates are pretty high, but they at least give you a lot of flexibility in terms of move in/out. Most of the other people in the buildings will probably college interns of some sort, not a ton of graduate students. You will basically have to deal with living like a college student again. One plus was that the places weren't entirely full when I was there, so it was a bit quieter than expected.

I would make a best attempt to find something else before resorting to GW dorms. Foggy Bottom kind of sucks as a neighborhood and the dorms aren't a great value.

Some of the bigger DC firms have a sublet list that they circulate before the summer so try to find someone with that for more options than just Craigslist.
