Whether you decide to live in a trendy basement apartment or in a larger home at Parker Place, you’re a 10-minute walk from Gallaudet University. With a bus stop across the road and the nearest metro just a 10-minute walk from your front door, reaching the rest of the city’s campuses is equally easy. If you’ve got time before lectures, get your caffeine fix at nearby Ebenezer’s Coffeehouse, which is one of the top-rated cafés in the city.
Keep a car in the off-street parking facility for exploring the wider DC area on weekends, then walk 15 minutes to Union Station whenever you feel like an out-of-town getaway. In-between adventures, come home for a well-earned rest. Grab a snack from the fridge, then head out to the outdoor patio to bask in the afternoon sunshine. Retreat to your bedroom to work on a class assignment, or for a power nap on your comfy bed.
With its scenic pathways, fountains and flowerbeds, Lower Senate Park is the perfect destination for a post-class workout and is just 17 minutes away on foot. Afterwards, rinse off with a hot shower, then choose a new outfit from your spacious wardrobe. Walk 10 minutes to your local supermarket whenever you need groceries, before putting the kitchen to good use and inviting your friends over for dinner around the living room table. If you feel like a night out, check Atlas Performing Arts Center’s eclectic calendar for plays, musicals, operas and live jazz.
