things to do around Washington


Our Foggy Bottom Campus combines the residential amenities of a top notch university with the excitement and convenience of living in the heart of the city.

Walk to a variety of museums, parks and attractions or hop on the Metro, a bus or bike share for adventures all over the city. And your city experiences don’t need to be confined to daylight hours, as many people enjoy “midnight monumenting” after the tourists have turned in for the night.
