Whether you choose a one, two or three-bedroom home at picturesque Greystone House, you’re a 10-minute bus ride from Howard University, and a 15-minute ride from Gallaudet University. When you want to explore further afield, walk 10 minutes to your nearest metro station. Soak up DC’s incredible political and historical heritage with a stroll along the National Mall from the US Capitol to Lincoln Memorial, or escape the winter chill with a visit to the Botanic Garden’s tropical greenhouses.
When you get home, stop to admire the building’s striking stone facade before heading inside and crossing the hardwood floors to your shared bedroom. Curl up on the bed for a quick power nap, spend a moment catching up with your roommate, or use the Wi-Fi to get started on your assignments. When you’re done, stash your books in your under-bed storage and walk 10 minutes up the road to the Kennedy Recreation Center. Let off steam on the basketball and tennis courts, then come home for a refreshing shower.
Drop your clothes off at the on-site laundry facility, before kicking back on the living room sofa. Check the fridge for dinner ingredients, and if the shelves are looking a bit bare, walk 12 minutes for a grocery run to the nearby Harris Teeter supermarket. Invite your friends over to help cook up a feast in your apartment kitchen, then get ready for a night out in front of your wardrobe’s full-length mirror.
