If I'm living off campus but want a reasonable commute to GULC what general areas should I look (budget max of $1200 and open to roommates)?
More importantly, when should I start looking? DC seems to be a pretty tight market that loads up in advance...
DC doesn't load up in advance outside of 77H/mass court/similar complexes (they are almost 100% students so that's why they load up in advance). In all other neighborhoods, I'd say 1-2 months out is when you'll find something. It's a little stressful, but people just don't put things up for rent more than 1-2 months in advance, especially if you're renting from an individual landlord instead of a big complex (the way to go IMO).
