Convenient and Comfy in VA
The metro is across the street through the Gateway Marriott. Getting to law school takes about 30 minutes on the blue line, including walking. Only issue is it's hard to go between school and home, so, if you need a suit, I just wear mine to school for the day.
Costco is around the corner, which is good for things you need in bulk, and Pentagon City is a ten minute walk. Harris Teeter is just beyond the main mall at Pentagon City, also an easy walk. Lastly, there's also a Rite Aid in the Crystal City Shops area. And there's a row of restaurants down the street.
There's a library down the street as well.
Best part of the apartment itself is it's larger than in the city, quiet, and comfortable. It used to be a hotel, and now it's mostly residential. Staff are friendly.
For comparison, places in Courthouse along the orange/silver line might have similar prices, be a similar distance from school, and have good amenities, too.
Only complaint is that studios don't have their own washing/drying machine, and utilities, i.e. gas, water, electricity, are based on square footage, not use (about $90/mth for my studio), and wifi here is another $100. Not sure what the prices are like in other parts of VA, but I've heard DC wifi is at least cheaper.
For a general sense of this area, it's very safe. Feels a bit like a retirement community, even though most of my neighbors are students and families.
Also, it can access the yellow line, which is convenient if you need to go to the center of the city for anything.
Prosperity Flats Review
Excellent place to live
Best Bang for your Buck in Arlington
I have been at this apartment complex for over a year and plan to stay for another two. It's the best bargain in South Arlington but you certainly have to own a car to be in the area. Commuting is easy, as they run a shuttle bus M-F from the apartment complex straight to Pentagon City Metro. The walls are paper thin though, so we are very used to knowing our neighbors well!
great space close to Howard
If you're looking for a beautiful space close to Howard this is it!
Laundry is a Pain
The on-site laundry is a pain. They are currently installing units in the apartments but that will take months to finish.
Can’t beat the access to the metro, underground passage from the apartment building to the the metro
Management responsive to comments. Lots of great community events. Clean, well-kept space. Apartments are large with lots of closet space. Low noise-level. Great amenities include pool (outside) and gym. Ability to use amenities (i.e. indoor pool) of sister sites in Crystal City. Pets allowed. Friendly staff. Relatively peaceful and pleasant area. Close to DC, the airport, and VRE.
Downside are the shared laundry machines, which often do not work. I believe that they are working on fixing this issue.
We've had a pretty good experience at The Gramercy in Arlington. I am married, and my husband works within a mile of this apartment, so for us my husband having an easy commute was important. Also, we do have a pet and being able to come home during a lunch hour if needed was also a significant driving factor. Although I currently have a long commute during my first semester, on Thursdays my commute to the GWU hospital is quick for my clinical day. Later on in the program, I am told being able to have a more comfortable commute is worth the commute time I am currently spending. I've also been told living closer to DC, will become more convenient as the semesters progress depending on the clinical locations and future job employment locations after school is over.
Our experience at The Gramcercy has been really good.
The Buchanan is affordable, clean, accessible to transportation and the DCA. It is a choice for students who are living on a budget, but want a nice place to live.
Clean, Hassle-free, Convenient Living
I really enjoyed my experiences living at Crystal Square Apartments. It is really convenient to get to the metro through the underground entrance and shops. The apartment I shared had a ton of space and I never had any maintenance related issues. The package pick up is really nice, and the people who live/work in the building were very friendly.

Chic Modern Apt 5 minute walk from campus
I’ve been living in the Shay since first year, and while the rent is on the higher end (as it is for most people who live in the city), it works out because I can walk to school/hospital in 5 minutes and it is conveniently located to U street and 2 metro stops. On the street level, there’s several retail stores, a market and restaurant, and a coffee shop that’s great for studying. The Shay is definitely worth at least a visit just to check it out. The leasing office often has deals that can help cut down the rent costs, especially for students. The Shay is a new modem apartment complex with a great young professional vibe, a 24 hr security and front desk staff, a large common lounge and pool area, rooftop deck, and a gym. I’ve enjoyed being so close to school, the metro stops, U street restaurants/bars, and to my favorite gym and grocery store.
Crystal Towers is pretty good
I enjoy living at the Crystal Towers. It's a very nice building, and everything here is in great shape. I love the gym, and when the weather is nice the pool and courtyard (with grills) is an excellent place to study or hang out. The staff here is friendly and helpful; I have never had a bad experience with someone who works here. Maintenance is especially great.
The location has pros and cons. On the one hand, the metro stop is right outside my door, and I'm in walking distance to bars, restaurants, and shopping. The ride to school is good- IF the blue line is working correctly. Oftentimes issues with WMATA make me wish I lived in DC. My social life can also feel a bit stunted at times- with all of my friends living in the District, it isn't always easy to make plans if I don't want to take the train in. The building is one train stop, or a five minute drive, or even a quick walk, away from Ronald Reagan airport. I can leave my home, go to the airport, get through security, and be at my gate, all in about half an hour. If you travel often, this is a very convenient location. One might expect noise issues, but there are none; the walls are thick and soundproof.
The place is also expensive. However, in comparison to rent in DC, it's a good value. I have a spacious studio with lots of storage, my cat is welcome, and there are great amenities.
The building also has a good community- there are frequent events, such as movie nights and holiday parties. There is also a nice breakfast served once a month.
My apartment is all carpet, which I don't love- I'd have preferred hardwood. I also have had plumbing issues on occasion (the shower drain is frequently stopped up). However, maintenance is always there to fix the problem quickly.
Great apartment and great service.
