« on: April 27, 2005, 04:43:03 PM »
Can anyone suggest a way to find affordable housing in D.C. this summer? Affordable = <$700.

get a roommate... or sublet.. http://www.washingtoncitypaper.com http://www.craigslist.org (click on washington dc)

We're not accepting this CHANGE UP in the rules. Period. American presidents have been in the bed with organized crime, corporate pilferers, and the like for years. And all u want to put on this man is that his pastor said "Gotdamn America?" Hell, America.U got off pretty damn well, if you ask me...

You might not have much luck finding anything below $1,000 - unless you are willing to live with 12 other people at the end of one of the Metro lines

try NOVA.  Also try getting a roommate.  You can also look for sublets around GW, American and Georgetown.  Students often leave furniture  :)

Georgetown also rents out dorms for the summer

http://www.georgetown.edu/housing/summer/

You live in a campus apartment that's furnished, has internet access, a/c, full kitchens & baths and access to a million other visiting interns, students and hot teenagers.  I have several friends that used to work in the residence hall offices over the summer and seriously it's like party central there.  The apartments are shared though, so you'd have to live with roommates.

Good ol' Washington --"affordable housing" is an oxymoron there, I'm afraid.

Beware singles under $1000.  The only way to get something in your price range is to room with others, as already suggested.  The DC Craigslist is great.
