I actually have the same question. Also, do student loan's help pay for your rent?
Any help is great!
I am 0L, so thats my disclaimer lol]
But I live in the DC metro area and have researched Howard recently since I am leaning on attending there. From what I gathered most of the students live around the Howard Law school not necessarly in one location..some live in silverspring,Maryland which is right down from Howard (its a few stops away on the metro train, which would be like 15 20 min ride on the train), those housing prob cost you anywhere from 700 to 1000. Some do live right next to the law school, but they seem to be pricey becaue the law school is located in the nicer area of D.C (looking at $1000-1400 a month for those apartment). I have spoken to the dean and he has also informed me some limited housing are available for howard law school students in the student apartments designated for Howard gradschool students(these housing are located on Georgie Ave as part of the Undergrad campus which is about 20 min away from the law school and there is shuttle or bus sytem I think, that runs about $1000 a month I think).The dean also suggested maybe getting a roomate which would be a lot cheaper but I dont know if you want to go through that again lol, I know I dont. But I guess you gota do what you gotta do!!..
This is what I gathered so far,
Hope this was helpful
