great location

The apartment is old and a bit outdated but the management is very responsive and you can't beat the location (and you pay for it)

Do not rent

This apartment has a poor management team. It has been going on with 'projects' that deeply disturbs the enjoyment and peace of a home. I would not recommend this apartment to anyone, and will not live hear again myself. I had water leaking from ceiling, from the floor, a closet rack falling down etc.

Decent

I live in a decently sized apartment (~600 sq ft) that is decently priced and very conveniently located to the law school. The amenities are okay, but not great, and the neighborhood is very quiet, but not conveniently located to much as far as activities or nightlife or anything.

A noisy experience

My three favorite things about this residence are: 1) it is right on campus; 2) the management is friendly and very responsive to your needs; 3) it is lower in cost. The things that you should know are: it’s very noisy, the parking lot near it is expensive, and it’s less modern. The appliances are older. The management is currently updating the building, but not the appliances or the inside of the rooms.

A very good option for a student living alone.

The building isn't the newest and there are some times when that shows, but overall it is a solid living space. The apartment has a lot of natural light, the neighbors aren't too noisy when it counts. The location in relation to the school is unbeatable. The staff are also very kind and helpful and my maintenance requests have been resolved very quickly.
I appreciate the amazon hub and 24 hour doorman that keeps track of larger packages. I will say the lack of restaurants and early closing times in the area in general can be a bummer at times.

Large Apartment - Reasonable Price

The apartment is very nice and spacious. There is a small, cozy rooftop as well as a small gym. Staff is nice and maintenance requests are generally completed within 24 hours. Location is also very convenient for attending GW in foggy bottom. It is approximately an 8 minute walk from the foggy bottom metro and whole foods which is a bit far.

Major maintenance and pest control issues

Just to name a few problems I've encountered so far: in August 2020 my apartment had a major pest outbreak; in January 2020 a rat was seen in my apartment; the entire back wall behind my dishwasher was missing; the walls are always creaking; at one point the building maintenance took away my fire alarm and failed to replace it for more than a month. The building management tends to ignore the maintenance requests when asked to--I literally have to threaten to take legal actions to get someone over to take care of the missing back wall/ rat a week ago.

No big issues but nothing spectacular about the building

The building is a bit old but there’s nothing wrong with the units, no bugs or any other issues like that. Laundry facilities have some issues and the gym is small, but for price and location, it’s worth it.

Statesman

Decent living. The walls can be a bit thin, so if your neighbors play loud music, generally you will here them (a good number of undergrads live here if you're living here as a grad student), but the building has a quiet policy from 10pm-8am, and I've found neighbors are generally willing to quiet down if they find out they're being too loud. I've found putting carpets on the wood floor and hanging paintings/wall coverings has helped insulate the room from too much noise.

The thing this place has going for it is the amount of space you'll be getting for the rent price. This is the best ratio of space-cost near George Washington University that's not a condo. The downside is you'll be living in an older building, but utilities are included, and you have a 24-hour doorman, so the building is secure, plus an Amazon locker by the loading dock.

It will cost more if you get a street-facing apartment, but I live in a studio facing the inner courtyard and even on a lower floor, I still get decent sunlight, plus I'm insulated from the street noise. There is a garage underneath, but it costs $9 per day if you get a monthly pass. There's also 2 Capital Bikeshare racks within 2 blocks of the building.

Foggy Bottom includes the GWU campus, so it's obviously very safe, plus we have a bunch of US federal agencies and the university hospital, so there's a strong police presence. There are a good number of homeless persons living in some of the parks, but they're harmless.

In terms of food, there's some decent food places, but not many. Georgetown, West End, and Dupont are within walking distance, so that's not so much of an issue. There's a Whole Foods and Trader Joes within a 15-minute walk from my apartment, but I prefer to drive to the Georgetown or Columbia Heights Safeway because they have cheaper/more options.
Great location to GW Law School, the monuments, and a few coffee shops, convenience stores and restaurants. I'm glad I have a car to drive to grocery stores to save myself from lugging tons of groceries home. Not a ton of nightlife, which I personally don't mind.
Foggy Bottom is a very convenient place to live as a GW student. But, note that it is a very student populated area. We are also pretty close to Whole Foods about about a 15-20 minute walk from Trader Joes
Across the street from the GW campus. There has been some crime but generally feels very safe. About a 10 minute walk to Whole Foods and the metro. Local eateries located nearby.
Generally safe neighborhood. Protests/Rallies can be a nuisance. A lot of options for food and dining. Close to government buildings for internships/jobs.
It is very close to Safeway and within walking distance from restaurants. However, I do see some shady characters from time to time.
Foggy bottom is pretty boring, but it's nice to be near campus and have close access to the metro. Also near the national mall.
I’m a law student so I don’t make much use of the neighborhood but there are plenty of quiet places to study and check out
